Release Notes | June 27, 2018
New Triggers & Automations
TRACK is excited to announce our new Triggers and Automations system. This will allow you to send emails automatically based on an event happening (Trigger) or at certain time intervals (Automation).
We currently support Triggers & Automations within the following core system areas:
Reservations (TRACK PM clients only)
Housekeeping Work Orders (TRACK PM clients only)
Maint. Work Orders (TRACK PM clients only)
Triggers are business rules you define to run immediately after an event occurs within an object. For example, a trigger can be created within Sales (object) that when a sale is created (event) that you send the guest a Confirmation Email.
Another example, a trigger can be created within Housekeeping (object) to notify the housekeeper when a housekeeping work order is ready to be worked on. Another trigger could be created to then notify the inspector when the housekeeping work order has been completed by the housekeeper.
Automations are similar to triggers because both define conditions and actions that modify object properties (Contacts, Leads, Sales, Reservations, Housekeeping and Maintenance Work Orders) and send email notifications. Where they differ is that automations execute when a time event occurs after an object property was set or updated, rather than immediately after an object is created or updated.
