How do I add merge codes to my content?

Merge codes are small pieces of text that can be used to recall data such as client and patient information. This will help to personalise your content.

Before you start

You need to have permissions to use the Content Designer. If you do not have the appropriate permissions, please contact your practices administrator to obtain the permission, or if you are the administrator, make sure to assign the correct role to your account. More information about role management can be found here.

Step-by-step instructions

  1. Go to  > General Settings > Content Designer.
  2. Open a letter, email, label or text message.

  4. Click in the text where you want to add the merge code.
  5. Click once on the merge code on the right, and it will be transferred to automatically to the text on the left.

  6. Scroll down and click Save.
