Merge Fields & Okendo Review Body

This may be a little ambitious but I figured I'd ask…

We integrated Okendo and Klaviyo, and I'm exploring how we can fully leverage the integration. I was curious if we could pull the user's review body into a follow-up upsell email.

The upsell email is easy enough. I have a segment of people who bought X product, have not purchased the upsell, and gave X product either a 4 or a 5 star review.

Is there a merge tag that would be able to pull the Review Body into the body of the email? 

This is what the data fields under Created Okendo Review look like:


Thank you!

Hello @jfcatalan,

Great question!
Since it sounds like your flow is triggered by a segment, it would not be possible to pull in the Review Body event metadata shared by the Created Okendo Review event. To highlight this Review Body metadata to have the value displayed as content in an email, I would suggest creating a flow triggered off of this Created Okendo Review event and target these customers who have purchased a specific product, have not purchased an upsell product, and gave either a 4 or 5 star review through flow filters. This is because you can only reference an event’s metadata fields through a metric triggered flow and not a list or segment triggered flow. Similar to how you cannot use dynamic event data in Campaign emails, flows triggered by a list or segment do not have an event to be associated with them by which you can pull in dynamic data.

By having your flow triggered off of the Created Okendo Review event, you should be able to reference the Review Body data by using a syntax such as {{ event|lookup:'Review Body' }}. The actual syntax of this may differ and as such, I would recommend reviewing the About Using Event Variables to Personalize Flows to learn more about how to utilize event data in your emails and pull this Review Body value correctly into your email. 

Thanks for sharing your question with the Klaviyo Community!
