2014-4Q (v003): SIMPLer: Customer Visit Notification Email

A new feature has been added to the SIMPLer system that will allow Operators to send a notification to a customer one day before an installer scheduled visit.

The notification will be sent to customers at the same time the installer gets a work order from the system, usually at 8pm the night before the installation. Installers should be receiving an email every evening with details of the jobs scheduled for the following day. Visit reminders will be sent to customers at the same time. The reminder will go to the customers primary email address as logged in the "email" field under their account.

In order to enable the feature turn on option "Customer Visit - Send Visit Notification Email To Customer" under global WISP Settings:

The email that is sent to a customer is customizable. Type of the email to use is "customer_visit_notification_email". For more information on how to customize customer emails click here

There is also an option to click to confirm or cancel an appointment. If you need to add such information you can add the following type of line to your notification, replacing the words servername and WISPID with your server name and WISP ID.

Please click here to confirm your appointment <a href='https://servername.azotel.com/CustomerPortal/confirmation.pl?operator=WISPID&code=%CONFIRMATION_CODE%'>Confirm</a><br><br>
