Using the token browser
You can use tokens to render dynamic data from your Content types and other content entities into fields in your Content templates. Tokens are specially formatted blocks of text that serve as placeholders for a dynamically generated value. They consist of a Type and a Value and are always contained within square brackets like this [node:title]. In this example, node: is the type and title is the value. You could use this example to render the node title into the Heading text field in a Heading element on your template.
