Additional variables to use on idea portal email templates

The ability to create email templates for thank you, status change, admin response and new comment events is really powerful but it would be great if some additional variables could be brought out to personalise the experience even further. So far the following are possible:


I'd love to see the following added:

$SUBMITTER_NAME - The name of the idea submitter to personalise the Thank You email

$PORTAL_NAME - To reference the name of the portal (when several may exist).

$IDEA_URL - To provide a quick link back to the idea

    It would be great if we could get the additional fields mentioned above as well as custom fields that have been added to the specific portal. For example $PROJECT_TYPE, $PRODUCT_TYPE, etc.. With a custom Aha! idea email, we could forward the email to another system when the idea is confirmed that it will be worked to create our tracker to move forward with the development work.

    An additional one I'd like to see is the comment on the New Comment template.
