Custom Policy and variables

Hi all

I've created a custom policy. I'd like to use system variables and * as described in the manual:

"You can use environment variables like %APPDATA% to define globally usable file paths for all of your devices"

 and

"You can use placeholders to backup file paths that contain specific keywords (e.g. C:\Users\*\Documents)"

but when I type a "*" or a system variables into the field, a syntax error occured and it is impossible to continue (see the pics)

Any suggestions? 

Thank you in advance

Hi @DeusExMachina

Thanks for the reply. 

The update was postponed for a few weeks due to unforeseen circumstances with Quality Assurance.  We have also created an advanced mode of selecting the variables which will make the wait worth while.

We will have the policies with Placeholders and system variables in a few weeks. I will post here when the update will go live. 

Thanks for your continuous support and understanding.

The variables and placeholders for the backup policies are not yet released. 

Could you please tell us what exactly is happening maybe we can find a workaround.
