In general it would be helpful to have a lot more control over notifications by email (refined by channel/covers/time etc.) as well as comments.
Quick update on this request.
We are getting a lot of customers asking us to help them better manage their reservations by delivering email notifications of diary events or booking/enquiries made.
As it seems that the preferred method of the alert is email, we are designing updated version of the templates we have to include/highlight important information.
Another development would to deliver management alerts on a conditional basis e.g. if a comment is added or a promotion booked.
We do already have a party size option though, so if you are wanting to send emails based on cover size then you can go to 'Notification Settings' and follow the guide below;
Management notifications guide
I will provide further updates on this development via this forum topic and if anyone has any further feedback in the meantime, please feel free to add your comments.
