Hi.
Send event works more like an array/enum, which makes it less prone to typos.

Sending events to prefabs for example, i would suggest using by name

Thing is I use Managers as globals and I set them at app start, so unless I'm in playmode, Playmaker is not aware of the gameobject that represents that global variable. Hence it's also not aware of the events/variables in it.

Should I set the Manager game objects instead directly in the global variable window? Funny I actually never even questioned that...

Hi.
Send Event and Send Event By Name internal is doing the same thing.
The difference is that Send event is using a preset list/enum string.
