Advice on how to create email with dynamic content

Hello,
Is there a way to create the linked email page with dynamic/complicated multiple lines of results?

I have a page that will be run via Cron / Task Scheduler each day. It checks IF there are recordset values present and if so sends off an email that has multiple database record values and runs a Repeat Region to generate the values.

Before I head off and hand code this, I was wondering if there is a way to achieve this with Universal Email? Coding the linked page ( $Email->BodyFile = "../webassist/email/templates/.... ) throws errors where the "includes" are not found.

One option is creating a result that is then saved with formatting etc and then put in a Session.

Any other options?

You should be able to add dynamic content to the email body just like you would any other .php page including repeat regions. The only special code you might need is some global definitions on the top to add any recordsets or connections from the main page you want to use like:

<?php
global $ConnectionName, $RecordsetName
?>

Once you do that, you can use the connections and recorsets from your main page on the email body page as well.

Hello Ray,
in databridge 1 when you edit a mail body, all bindings are recreated automatically.
Now you need to use the code:
<?php
global $ConnectionName, $RecordsetName
?>
or import bindings using the bindings panel + form data to import form fields from another page.
But how can I get other values such us "upload filename"?

Example: in databridge 1 I can get the value
<?php echo $WA_DFP_UploadStatus["WA_UploadResult1"]["serverFileName"]?>
from the binding panel.
But in databridge 2 I cannot get it since it is not present in the binding panel.
How can I reference to this value in databridge 2?
TIA
tony

Add it to the list of globals like:

php:
<?php

global $ConnectionName$RecordsetName$WA_DFP_UploadStatus
?>


Then you can copy and paste the code from the main page into the body and it will work.
