How do i get full text value of dropdown in email formating instead of just value before = ?

'auto add fields data' option do that with each dropdown, yet im missing something. Is there some shortcode for this or its done in completely different way?​

Hi restore,

The "Auto add" gets the option text from the field info in a complex way, no shortcode is yet available for this, you will need to use a "Switch" action, this is explained in some posts.

You basically add a switch before the email, set the data provider to {data:dropdown_name} and the values to possible values and their texts:

option:text​
​option2:text2

Then use {var:switch_name} in the email!

Thanks for response,

I was expecting something like this, as the value text wasnt in params at all. Yet one never knows if there is any easier shortcut. Id suggest option of adding this as param as a useful feature. ​
