The field must be a simple value (not computed, not item list). The tracker item can be specified by its ID with the itemId plugin param. If it is not specified and the url used to access the page has a itemId parameter, the value of itemId parameter will be used. If after this test is not set and if the User Tracker feature is set on, the user item of the user will be selected.


For example, you have a user tracker with a field containing the phone number of the user, you can use this plugin with the fieldId=phone_field_id to display in the page the phone number of the user looking at the page:

{trackeritemfield fieldId="1"}

Another example, you want to add a link in a page to a page where a user can fill his user tracker only if the user has no user tracker. You can use this plugin with the fieldId that is the user selector field.

{TRACKERITEMFIELD(fieldId="1" test="1")}Welcome new member, please visit ((this_page)) to fill up your information{TRACKERITEMFIELD}

A field can be tested against a value

{TRACKERITEMFIELD(fieldId="1" test="1" value="toto")}Yes your name is toto{TRACKERITEMFIELD}

See Tracker Field Types for values to match for special fields such as checkboxes.

If you want to do the same thing with a tracker that is not the user tracker but has only one item per user and has a field user selector/1, you can specify the tracker ID like this

{trackeritemfield trackerId="1" fieldId="1"}
{TRACKERITEMFIELD(trackerId="1" fieldId="1" test="1")}Please fill out your review{TRACKERITEMFIELD}

It is also possible to test the status of the user item. For instance if you want to display something only if the item is pending or closed:

{TRACKERITEMFIELD(status="pc")}Sorry, your survey is being processed{TRACKERITEMFIELD}

It is also possible to test if all the fields of as item are not empty:

{TRACKERITEMFIELD(trackerId="1" fields="")}Thank you your form is complete{TRACKERITEMFIELD}

It is also possible to test an alternative:


It is possible to have multiple levels of ELSE:


Note the order the other test with always be in the ELSE part.
