Feature Description

New Trigger Options!

Two new trigger options now available in the Trigger maintenance menu (Maintenance > General > Triggers):
  • Loyalty Reward Triggers – Triggers can now send based on whether a client record has Loyalty Rewards. This trigger can be generated either when a Loyalty Reward is created or as the Loyalty Reward is expiring. An additional exclusion has also been added if you wish to include Loyalty Rewards that have been redeemed in full.

  • Automatically send an Email AND also an SMS Text Message for me – along with our ability to send either an email or SMS message, you can now send both from the same trigger.

StudioPlus Mail Trigger Option!

Note: This feature is only available to users with the StudioPlus Mail Add-on.

Users with the StudioPlus Mail add-on service now can define which email address you want triggers to send from. From within the Trigger maintenance, Maintenance > General > Triggers, on the Email tab of the trigger, a new field is visible where you can either select a User Preferences email or enter the email address the trigger should show when sending. For instance, if you use a general “Info@” email in your Company Preferences, you may wish to send triggers from a “CustomerService@” or personal email address.

Outgoing SMS Enhancements!

This setting can be activated at Maintenance > Preferences > Company Preferences > Clients tab > SMS Messaging Options.
