Trigger Options

With InspiredByYou (IBY) 2.0, we’ve also added some new trigger options. One of the new features with IBY is a “Pending Shopping Cart”. You can track this information within Stratus and create triggers based on your client’s activity online.

These trigger options can be found when creating a new trigger at Maintenance > General > Triggers

New Trigger options include:

• Web Order and Pending Web Order Trigger Types for invoice triggers.

• Client and Session Triggerable dates based on:

  • Client Activation Date
  • Session Activation Date
  • Date Client first logged in to IBY
  • Date Client last logged in to IBY

Online Booking Web Forms

Need to gather more information from your clients when they book online? You can now select to have the Online Booking Portal display a web form after booking – allowing you to collect almost any necessary information from your lead.
This can be set up at Maintenance > Preferences > Online Booking Preferences > Client tab. You have the option to display a web form for new or existing clients.

  • Client Login information
  • Online Logo
