What do you need the placeholders for?

If you want to use an interactive tool, which needs to receive certain session or user data, as a content page or a poster in your session, you can define placeholders for this parameters and the parameters will be automatically set while opening the URL. An example for tat can be a multi language content page which needs to know what language did user select.

What placeholders are possible?

Following placeholders are supported:

  1. {{sessionId}} - unique identifier of the session / event.
  2. {{sessionTitle}} - title of the session / event.
  3. {{userLanguage}} - currently selected display language.
  4. {{userToken}} - access token of the user.
  5. {{userName}} - name of the user.
  6. {{userEmail}} - login e-mail of the user.

Warning: providing the user token to a site allows this site to access any data the user has access to, so please only set this parameter for the sites you absolutely trust.
