How to detect personal build

I am using Team City version 8.0 and the Visual Studio addin.

One of my build steps uploads build artifacts to a NuGet repository. Is there a way to detect if a build is a personal build? (I don't want to upload artifacts from personal builds). So far I have managed to set up a build that takes an 'isPersonalBuild' parameter that will control the upload to Nuget but I have to set this each time in the 'customize build...' button on the personal build dialog (easy to forget). Ideal solution would be a parameter that is set automatiacally by the VS Addin but if not is there a way to make customized build options sitcky between builds (like a file I can edit) or any other ways to solve this problem.

Many thanks

I've just discovered this that says there should be a parameter called that is set to true for personal builds but I can't get this to work (does not seem to be defined for any build)

Hi Julian

That system property can be referenced and evaluated within build scripts only.
TeamCity UI doesn't allow confitional selection of build steps.

The only solution I can suggest is to split compilation and deployment to separate build configurations.
