Shopify Mail | using Shopify Flow custom variables in email

Hi,

 

We have a Shopify Flow trigger that contains Customer property and two custom properties:

The problem is, if we are trying to send marketing email via Shopify Mail, we are only able to access Customer property, but not custom properties:

We know that it is possible to use Liquid, but there is no reference about how / where to find custom variables using Liquid.

Please advise.

This is an accepted solution.

When in an Email template, you cannot yet use variables passed from another action or trigger in Flow.

Hi @paul_n! Thanks for the message! 
Can you please open a feature request on this? This can be very useful for building email automations.

Is there anything new to report on this feature? Seems a pretty useful feature to be able to use the data that has been gathered in a Flow Action, like Get Product Data, and use that data to populate a Product-section in a Marketing Email. I've been banging my head against the wall to get this to work but apparently it isn't even possible at this moment...

Please open a feature request for this if it isn't on the backlog already.
