Substitution strings in Text Widgets enable you to create intelligent sentences that add real value to the narrative that you can put around the other Widgets in your Profile. These have been available in IAS for a long time and we are aware that a number of customers have made good use of them. However one of the limitations of the substitution strings is that they’re not able to do conditional statements. For example if an Indicator value has changed between two dates it is not possible to get the Widget to enter the word ‘increased’ or ‘decreased’; instead you have to word your sentence to say that the value has ‘changed’ between the two dates.
An example of how this will display on the IAS User Website is shown below:
