Staff bookings and choosing the notification languageBack to top
With your email notifications translated into other languages, Staff can choose the language the notification sends when creating a new booking from the system's back-end, for example, via the New Booking (Booking > New Booking) option.
A unique Customer Language field appears on the booking form and is visible to Staff members only. The drop-down menu is pre-populated with any active Customer languages in your system.
The language selected in this field causes relevant notifications to send in that language per their schedule.
