Why Tokens 🖐

One of the things that makes Táve so powerful 💪 is your templates. In order for templates to be powerful, you'll want to build out some of these templates with placeholders where your clients' data will go. In Táve, we call these Tokens.
 
Tokens
can be used in emails, contracts, and questionnaires to quickly personalize documents and emails for everyone you work with, without having to create them from scratch for every client. If that's not enough time-saving power for you, you can even use them in automations.

Understanding Tokens

Every token will begin with a prefix telling you what that token is for. It's important to make sure you have the right prefix when you're using tokens as this tells Táve where to get the information from. An example would be {{bride.name}}, which would be a placeholder for the full name of the bride. 👰 Once you have your prefix selected, grab the token you want to use, use it as a placeholder, and Táve will automatically fill it with the information you've previously gathered in Táve.
