Dynamic variables are surrounded by % marks on both sides. Ex: %first name%. When there is more than a single subject in the view such as in a composite, you can select which subject to pull the dynamic variables from with %first name1% . For group fields like %grade% , it will pull the most common Grade from all of the subjects in the composite.

Every field that is in your Project Template can be pulled as a dynamic variable. If you have a field called Custom Field 1 in your template, then it can be referenced by %Custom Field 1%. It is a case insensitive match so you can also put in %cuSTOM field 1% and it will work as well.

We also have a list of non-project template dynamic variables:
