A data dictionary is a set of tags that, when placed in a Message Template, will be replaced with internal Tokeet data. In other words they are placeholder strings that tells Tokeet to insert specific data in that location. 

To navigate to the data dictionary, click on the "book" icon on your template formatting ribbon inside a message template.

All data dictionary tags have the format *|GUEST:PHONE|* where GUEST is the data entity and PHONE is the entity attribute.

So for example, if you want to insert the guest phone number automatically into a template when you are about to send the template as a message you will add *|GUEST:PHONE|* into the template in place of the phone number. The web app will replace that placeholder with the guest phone number whenever you load the template on the message screen.

Data dictionary items can only be placed in a template when the template is created in the Template settings section of the application. This is because the web app will read the template and replace all data dictionary placeholders when the user selects the template on the message screen.

The valid data dictionary placeholders are as follows:
