    I tried adding custom field to a subscriber.
    I used this code:
    var metaMan = MetadataManager.GetManager();
    var dynType = metaMan.GetMetaType(typeof(Subscriber));
    if (dynType != null)
    {
              metaMan.Delete(dynType);
              metaMan.SaveChanges(true);
    }
    metaMan = MetadataManager.GetManager();
    dynType = metaMan.CreateMetaType(typeof(Subscriber));
    var metaField =  metaMan.CreateMetafield('Token');
    metaField.DBSqlType = "NVARCHAR(150)";
    metaField.DBType = "LONGVARCHAR";
    metaField.ClrType = "System.String";
    dynType.Fields.Add(metaField);
    metaMan.SaveChanges(true);


    I checked the database, and the field is there, i populated this field with data, but I can't retrieve values.
    I tried with {|Subscriber.Token|} in message template, but is empty every time.

    Please help,
    Stefan
