Staff bookings and choosing the notification languageBack to top
With your email notifications translated into other languages, Staff now have the option to choose in which language the notification should be sent when creating a new booking from the back-end of the system, for example, via the New Booking (Booking > New Booking) option.
A special Customer Language field appears on the booking form and is visible to Staff members only. The drop-down menu is pre-populated with any Customer languages that are currently active in your system.
