I am wondering to know if it is possible to use a Custom Metadata Type inside an Email Template. I'm moving from Custom Setting to Custom Metadata Type and this feature could be great.

Regarding the Custom Setting, only if we use a Hierarchy Custom Setting we can do that.



You can use custom metadata types in SObject Formula fields so the following works fine (example):

On Contact SObject

New formula field (text) Foo__c with value


In email template:

Hello {!Foo__c}
