Use tokens inside of tokens (nested tokens)

Use tokens inside of tokens (nested tokens)

It would be nice to be able to use a token inside of another token.  For example- I may have a token called "event description" that would include the event name, date, time, URL, etc.  that I have already tokenized.  By using these tokens inside of this other token, it would allow me to do less overall updating when cloning the campaign.

In fact, here's the grandaddy of ideas around tokens:

Dupe like Dan said... also note that Velocity (email script) tokens can in fact be nested, or more precisely, share internal variables.

So in your example:

----BEGIN TOKEN 1----

#set( $eventDescription = {

"name" : "blah",

"date": "2017-02-15"

} )

----END TOKEN 1----

----BEGIN TOKEN 2----

${eventDescription.name} ## references the data from the other token

----END TOKEN 2----

Some mind-blowing stuff can be done with this.
