With help of variables it is possible to create email templates which pull information from different parts of PaxFlow.

To add an variable to a template put it into braces {variable}.

It's possible to apply some basic html formatting:

<b>bold</b> = makes the word appear bold.

<em>emphasis</em> = makes a word appear in italics.

It's also possible to add links to words:

<a href=https:://wwv.google.com/maps>Google Maps</a>

  • adds a link to the words "Google Maps"

And it's even possible to do all of that together:

<a href=https:://wwv.google.com/maps/search/?api=1&query={pickup_place_gps_lat}%2C{pickup_place_gps_lon}><b>{pickup_place_title}</b></a>

  • adds a link with a search request in Google Maps for for the coordinates of the pickup location to the pickup location which is bold.

To add a link to the PaxPortal of a booking the variables {customer_portal_login_start} and {customer_portal_login_end} can be used.

Some useful variables:

{tour_vendor_title}

{tour_title}

{customer_name}

{pickup_place_title}

{date}

{departure_time}

{pickup_place_gps_lat}

{pickup_place_gps_lon}

{customer_portal_login_start}our customer portal{customer_portal_login_end}

{customer_phone}

{customer_name}

{currency}

{total_due}

More variables for bookings can be found by looking up activities in the Booking filter UI.
