Form Notifications

You can set up automated emails that are sent once a booking is made. These emails can go to you, the site administrator, and/or to the user, the person who made the booking.

Admin Notification

Admin notifications can be enabled or disabled.

The available fields are:

  1. Send To – the email address where to send the email. In most cases, this should be your email address.
  2. From Name – the sender’s name.
  3. From Email – the sender’s email address.
  4. Reply To – the reply-to email address, usually the same as the sender’s email address.
  5. Subject – the email’s subject line.
  6. Message – the email’s message.

In any of these fields, you may use Email Tags. Scroll down to see how they work.

User Notification

The user notification works roughly the same as the admin notification. To enable user notifications, you need to have an Email Field added in your form.

User notifications can be enabled or disabled.

The available fields are:

  1. Send To – the email address where to send the email. You can only select an email field from the form.
  2. From Name – the sender’s name, usually your name.
  3. From Email – the sender’s email address, usually your email address.
  4. Reply To – the reply-to email address, usually the same as the sender’s email address.
  5. Subject – the email’s subject line.
  6. Message – the email’s message.

In any of these fields, you may use Email Tags. Scroll down to see how they work.

Email Tags

For both Admin and User notifications, you can use Email Tags. You can add these tags in any of the fields from the notification tabs.

There are three standard tags, and one tag for each form field. The standard tags are {All Fields}, {Start Date} and {End Date}.

The All Fields tag includes the Start Date and End Date tags, as well as all the form fields.

When the email is sent, these tags will be replaced with the values submitted in the form.

For example, if you have a field called Name which has the ID 2, the tag will be {2:Name}. You can add this in the Subject field of the email, like so: “Hello {2:Name}”. If a visitor makes a booking and enters his name, let’s say John, when he receives the email, the subject will be “Hello John”.
