More variables in email notification subject lines

The only variables available for email notification subject lines are %JobResult%, %JobName%, %VmCount%, %Issues% and %Time%. It would also be useful to be able to see whether the job was a full backup, incremental, etc. Currently, the only clue about this is in the heading of the table in the message body. If it's a full backup, it says "(Full)" after the job name. If it's an incremental, it doesn't add anything after the job name.

Is there any way to get it to add the job type to the subject line, or even the body?

As far as I know this is not possible in the subject line. We might consider to look at it and see if we can add a variable for it depending on the time we have. How would you exactly see this? Just add the word to the subject (such as Full / Incremental / Synthetic Full / ...).

Let us know
