Dot-walking in variables

Dot-walking in variables

Often, you can add variables into templates, notifications, or other forms where a value is being called from the form.

For example, ${assigned_to} is the variable for the Assigned to field.

As illustrated above, it is possible to dot-walk to fields on any reference field's original record. In the case above, it is possible to dot-walk to any field on the assigned_to record, for example, ${assigned_to.manager}.

As is always the case with dot-walking, this can be a longer chain if needed, as in this example: ${assigned_to.department.manager.mobile_phone}.

Sometimes this variable can be selected from a tree picker.
