Understand better System Emails

2 months 5 days ago #47544 by Yaritza Ramírez
Hello everyone!

I was beautifying a little bit the Jomres System Email and I cross with this two email files:
- email_guest_newbooking.html
- email_guest_confirmationletter.html
Can somebody explain what's the difference here? When Jomres send one and when the other?

Thanks for help.

Perhaps if you look at the front end Settings-Email Templates, as seen in the screenshot, it might assist your understanding.

Personally I refer to them as Email 1 & Email 2.

If a booking is made by the customer, rather than a booking request which involved the booking request plugin, then email 1 automatically goes to the customer to tell them step 1 has been done.

If the Approval of bookings is required then email 2 automatically goes to the customer when the booking is approved.

If the detail of the booking has changed at any point, eg rooms changed etc, receptionists can click "Email" in the booking details tabs and send email 2 again.

Developed and maintained by Vince Wooll and Aladar Barthi, Jomres was initially conceived in early 2005 as a Mambo based solution to a client’s hotel management needs. While it wasn't originally expected to be an online booking system it quickly morphed into one as users requested more and more features.

As the number of feature requests grew Vince knew that he would need to dedicate more time to the project and in July 2005 Jomres was formally released as a commercial project. Since then, Jomres has become one of Mambo’s, and now Joomla’s, longest running projects. It has survived various versions of Mambo, then Joomla 1.0, 1.5, 1.6, 1.7, 2.5 and 3.

Aladar joined the project in 2010 after using Jomres for his own projects. He was active on the forum, helping other members of the community and eventually Vince invited him to join the team. He has since become an integral part of the project and has contributed significantly to it's development over the years.

Whilst not formally part of the Jomres project, Rodrigo Rocco and the team have become firm friends. Rod is a freelancer who specialises in doing custom work for Jomres users and developing custom plugins for the system that take advantage of it's modular design. He has built many useful extensions including his fabulous new Valentina Template Package.
