Custom User Field as a Merge Field in an e-mail Template?

I'm trying to simplify an e-mail template that our Recruiters frequently send to candidates. The template requires some user-specific info so my idea was to create a Custom User Field and then use it as a Merge Field to put it into the template automatically. I created the custom field and gave it the Label "Devine - SM English" and the External Name "DEV_SM_ENG". I populated the field for myself and have been testing e-mails with the following merge field codes, but none of them seem to work:

  • <<DEV_SM_ENG>>
  • <<Devine - SM English>>

Howdy, Stranger!
