what do I need to do please it wont let me choose anything there isn't anything to choose. what if I don't want to use a variable. it wont let me save the workflow. I chose a literal and as you can see it says "EOIR 26 submission" but it still wants me to choose a variable

In your case you have to select literal from the drop down list for the email subject and type in value

if you are selecting metadata then you should have created a metadata property by that name which I do not think is the case

workflowuser​ it is working now. I have solve the issue. no further help needed. the deprecated one work as I stated above. I will try the new one once I see the drop down menu for variables do not show up again. I guess there should be an update. the pictures above shows you the problem
