"Current User" tokens for Email Assist

I have a request from the client to be able to send out Email Assist emails using the "Current User" strategy which can be see in reports, etc. Essentially what they want is to be able to create a template with a "logged in user" token that grabs the current uses "ID" and then looks up to the fields on the user table. 

FYI: A key requirement here (which is in another feature request) is to be able to pull the field "phone" off the user table which doesn't appear to currently be possible.

Great idea, Steve. I think logged-in user tokens will be very helpful. Added to the roadmap.

Adding my voice here. Would love to be able to include the Account Manager's phone number when sending a renewal notification.

Hi Seth,

If you'r looking for getting Phone number of the Account Manger assigned to Account, you can still get it now by creating a Formula field on Account to get phone number of Account Manager and map that in Email Assist.

Thanks for mentioning it, Hitesh! I was also thinking that the Rule that generates the CTA could put any info into a custom field on the CTA itself, which would make it accessible to the Email Template. So this feature request is less about making it possible, and more about allowing me to avoid SFDC config complexity wherever I can.
