Variables

Variables can help simplify the management of profiles, publish destinations, publish accounts, and notifications. These “placeholders” have a value applied to them at the time a presentation processes.

There are three different types of variables available:

  • System Variables

    Select from variables included in the TechSmith Relay system and that change their value based on the information for the presentation that is being processed.

  • Global Variables

    Create a variable, use the variable in multiple places, and manage the value in central location.

  • Profile Variables

    Create a variable, use the variable in multiple places, and define the value per profile.

Where and How to Use Variables

Variables are available in multiple fields on the TechSmith Relay website, but you use the same interface to access them in all locations.

  • Where Can I Use Variables?

    Variables are available in publish destinations, publish accounts, and notifications. You can use them to reuse file paths, URLs, folder names, email recipients, notification messages, and more

    Next to each field that can accept variables, you will see the Variable button.

  • How Do Add a Variable to a Field?

    To use a variable:

    1. Click the Variable button to open the Variable Selection window.
    2. Select a Variable type (Global, System, or Profile).
    3. Select a variable from the list of variables of the selected type.
    4. Click Add. The variable is added at the cursor location.

    5. Repeat as needed. You can use the window to add variables and to edit the content of the field.
    6. When you are done, click OK to close the window.
