Active

The slider turns an automated message ON and OFF. By default this is set to ON - keep it as it this when creating a new automated message that you want to activate straight away.


An automated message that is set to OFF will still be shown in the list of automated messages, but it won't be running.

Name

Give your automation a name for internal use - something that will help you find it in the list, and also will be descriptive for your colleagues.

Schedule

Choose whether to send the message at the moment of the trigger event, or at a specific time after it.

Here's the list of all available triggers for automated messages:

  • New accepted reservation

  • Alteration of reservation

  • Reservation cancellation

  • New inquiry

  • Check in

  • Check out

  • Awaiting payment

  • Inquiry expiration

  • Successful payment

  • Payment failed

  • Refund

  • Reservation balance paid in full

Filters

Add one or more of the 8 filters for the automated messages. Using a filter will ensure that the automated message will be send only if the conditions in the filter are met. By using the drop-down menu, you can choose a filter and it will be added to the list below. If you want to add another filter, just use the drop-down menu again. If you want to remove a filter, you can do that by clicking the X on the right-hand side of it.
