Currently if I want to pass custom properties to the main build event, I need to use a custom script (msbuild MySolution.sln /t:Build /p:RunOctoPack=true) It would be great if there was a way to set these as a set of properties in the appveyor.yml file instead!

I love this service btw, I've been able to get my project building very quickly and easily.

    You can try setting those properties through environment variables with the same name.

    Yeah, it seems like this is what I was looking for. I hadn't realized environment variables can be used as properties in MSBuild. It might be worth adding that to the documentation... or maybe not since it's an MSBuild thing that I just didn't know about.

    Thanks for the help!
