    Another use case is the insertion of tracking links into order shipped notifications. For example, something like this would be ideal:

    {if "%%#ffill_shipmethod%%" contains "FedEx"}
    ---render FedEx link here
    {elseif "%%#ffill_shipmethod%%" contains "UPS"}
    --render UPS link here
    {{/if}}

    Without the contains expression, we're going to be forced to create an elseif block for every shipping method that UPS and FedEx have.

    Thanks!

    I see that this has not been updated in quite some time. Has this been an added feature at all?

    With dynamic code snippets we can match against a field either being blank, equals, greater than/less than, checked, and not checked, but there is nothing about partial matching or "contains".

    Background:
    We want to personalize messages based on a customer's favorite brand. Customers are encouraged to have multiple favorite brands, so I would like to include all of the customer's favorite brands in a single field (separated by commas or pipes), and then be able to check if the a specific brand exists in their list of favorites.

    Use case:
    Sending an email to the customer about a big sale going on. If one of their favorite brands is currently on sale, we can feature different imagery to that customer, and personalize the message. We would set it up in a big if/else conditional so that they would only see one message:
    {if $Contact.fav_brand eq "Nike"}{literal}Nike is on sale{/literal}
    {elseif $Contact.fav_brand eq "Reebok"}{literal}Reebok is on sale{/literal}
    {elseif $Contact.fav_brand eq "Puma"}{literal}Puma is on sale{/literal}
    {else}{literal}We've got stuff on sale!{/literal}
    {/if}

    I think the current workaround for this it to maintain a segment for every brand, and that becomes a lot of upkeep for us.
