Example of Generic Notification
For example Review Request notification. In Set filters please add 2 filters Confirmed Booking and Not Canceled Bookings to ensure that as soon as the booking is confirmed and not canceled the notification will send.
Delivery Window has got Early condition and Late Condition. The early condition has got a few time triggers, for example, that you can use:
- after create
- before balance due
An example of an early when you want it to send 3 days before the balance is due.
Please note the notification is only sent once. Although, there is only one case when it is triggered again. For example, you have a tentative reservation and you set your notification to send every time it is updated:
- after update
- after departure
For example Review Request notification which you can set to certain days after departure.
