Watch the following video to see how you can manage custom variables for field codes in Designer:

Create or edit a custom variable

When you create a new custom variable, the New Custom Variable view opens on the right side of the page. To begin, give your variable a name and brief description.

The custom variable name can consist of no more than 64 alphanumeric characters (a-z, A-Z, 0-9) and underscore.

Choose the Type of custom variable and add a default value that corresponds to the type. If you choose DateTime, use the calendar widget to select a default date and time or enter your own value in this format: "yyyy-MM-ddTHH:mm:ss.SSSZ".

Copy a custom variable

You can copy an existing variable with the Copy button (Des PII copy.png). This opens the New Custom Variable view with the copied information. The name of the variable includes "_N", where "N" is the number of the copy. For example: CV_DateTime_1, CV_DateTime_2, and so on.

Delete a custom variable

To delete a custom variable, just click the delete icon (Des PII delete.png).

Search for a custom variable

To search for a custom variable, use the search box above the table. The results filter automatically based on the text you enter in the search box.
