A Merge Variable is a placeholder value that can be dynamically populated. Merge Variables allow you to update and maintain dynamic pieces of information in your Library in an easy, centralized way.
Permissions Required: Library, Level 3 permissions required to create Merge Variables.
To create a Merge Variable:

- Click the purple check button to save your Merge Variable
