Toy Due Soon – Automatic email
This email is great for reminding members when the toys they have on loan are due soon. You can decide how many days prior you would like to send this email.
The default setup is 2 days, so the member will receive the email 2 days before the due date.
The first important step is to create/modify the email template called ‘toy_due_soon’.
Go to Setup -> Email Templates and click edit.
Then change the content in the email
You can add any generic shortcode you like to the email, for example, in the above template, you can see [longname] or [email_library].
