Adding more placeholders for external tools?

Is it possible to add extra placeholders for use with external tools? The program comes with two:

%Name%
%IP_Address%

These are useful, but I want to use the 'user defined' fields for extra information needed by a command line. Is there a way of adding more placeholders based on data in the database?

There isn't any facility for user-defined placeholders. However, if you will specify what placeholders you would be interested in, we will consider them as a feature request.

All of the user defined fields would be very useful for configuring external tools.

%UDF_1%
%UDF_2%
%UDF_3%
%UDF_4%
%UDF_5%

The latest version (Alloy Navigator 5, http://www.alloy-software.com/a5/index.html) offers the same default placeholders (%Name% and %IP_Address%). In addition you can use any existing in the Computers table field, for example %UDF001%.
