Send a customized Confirmation Email/SMS for a specific Room Type. This feature automatically sends a customized Booking Confirmation Letter when a booking is made at the Front Desk or on the Booking Engine for a specific Room Type and Guest Type. For Example, If you have specific information about a unique Room Type (Cabins) that you need to include in the Confirmation, then you can create the Letter and designate it to the Room Type. When a booking is made at the Front Desk or on the Booking Engine for the Cabin Room Type, the custom letter will automatically be sent via Email and/or SMS in place of the standard Default Booking Confirmation Letter.
