Good Afternoon,

I'm new to all this and am just getting set up. I'm attempting to create a triggered email with arrival information. it has to be specific for each property (i have 5). When attempting to set up the first one, i get an error message when i type in the name of the email template and also with the subject line the recipient will see. I have looked and looked for an answer but am not sure why I am getting an error.

Hmm. What error message are you getting?

Are you making 5 emails, one for each property? There's an easier way to make it specific for each property -- create custom fields for the information that will change, like directions or lock code, then define values for those fields in each property. Once that's done, you can create a single email template that references the field and is updated with the correct value for the property on the booking.

Here's an article on that: https://www.ownerreservations.com/support/articles/pre-arrival-email-templates-triggers-custom-fields

I will happily make one for all properties as you suggested and i did see that tutorial. However, when i try to create one i get an error message in the field for Name (at the top) and Subject. Do I need to create these first?

Here is the error message... it's probably something very basic but i cant figure it out!

Wait, something's wrong!

There is a problem with 2 of the fields below. Please look carefully at the red fields, correct the problem and then try again.
