You can control who receives the pre-defined emails automatically from your iBex system.
You setup your email preferences in the Auto-Email Rules option in the Email section in the menu.
This screen defines who will get auto emails when bookings are created, confirmed or cancelled and is shown as a table where you can tick/untick boxes to prevent an email being sent out under different scenarios.
In this grid, “You” refers to your head office or account owner - iBex allows us to configure separate email addresses for the head office and each individual property in the account.
The fields and functions on this screen are explained below:
New Bookings – This column is for new bookings that are created. The OnReq subcolumn refers to bookings received on request and the Cnfrm sub-column refers to bookings received with instant confirmation.
On Request Bookings – This column is for existing bookings that were received on request. The Op Cnfrm sub-column refers to on request bookings confirmed by the operator. The Op Cancel sub-column refers to on request bookings that have been rejected or cancelled by the operator. The Prop Cnfrm and Prop Cancel are the same but being confirmed, rejected or cancelled by the property.
