>[[pt_first_name]] will insert the patient's first name

>[[pt_last_name]] will insert the patient's last name

[[scheduled_type]]  will insert the type of appointment (i.e., whatever has been set as the "Appointment Name on Portal")

[[scheduled_provider]] will insert the associated providers or resources (note that if at least one user is associated with the event, resources will NOT be included)

then it will be sent as:
