Hi there!
It would be very cool if one could setup the emails to be sent to more than one person. At this time as I understand that if I wanted an email to be sent I am limited to only one recipient? The only solution I see is making a copy of the exact email and setting it up separately but identically for anotherperson to receive it it.. which could be a drag. Options as CC field would be great. Please let me know if there is such options or if this would be a quick fix on your end. Thank you very much.Ella

We don't currently support multiple to emails, but we've bumped it up on the priority list.

There are a couple of ways to do this. You can create duplicate email templates as you suggested. Or, if you have control over your email provider, you could create a forwarding alias that sends email to multiple addresses. Something like housekeeping@myvacationrental.com, which would then forward to the appropriate email addresses. Different email providers have different ways of doing this. If you have Google Apps, you can create a group: https://support.google.com/a/answer/33343?hl=en. If you have gmail, you could use an alias like yourgmail+housekeepers@gmail.com, and then archive and forward that using a filter: http://www.komku.org/2013/10/how-to-use-filters-to-forward-certain-emails.html
