Merge Tags

Below is our merge tag guide, which can be found at the bottom of the 'Email' tab. Are you creating your own email templates following our guide? By placing these merge tags into your emails, you are essentially asking Rerun to automatically fill in the information based on what is available in your Rerun account.

Rerun merge tags are in the format of [Tag]. The brackets along with the exact text indicate the tag information.

Please note: If your customer is missing information in a specific field, for example, their Company Name, when the email sends with this merge tag, it will show up as a blank space because no information was available to pull.

There are three types of Merge Tags. Customer Tags, Payment Tags, and You Tags (which are tags related to your own company information).
