Set shorthand codes on booking form

On your booking form, set the shorthand code of the question you want to make your trigger.

Build conditional statements

Using your shorthand code you've selected to be your trigger, build a conditional statement. You'll create a statement for each possible selection.

In this example, we've set the shortand code TOPIC, so the conditional statements are:

  • {IF}{TOPIC}{EQUALS}Sales Reporting{THEN}Details on sales reporting you want to include to your booker about this topic... {ENDIF}
  • {IF}{TOPIC}{EQUALS}Sales Forecasting{THEN}Details on sales forecasting you want to include to your booker about this topic... {ENDIF}
  • {IF}{TOPIC}{EQUALS}Sales Team Management{THEN}Details on sales team management you want to include to your booker about this topic... {ENDIF}

Tip: The text between {EQUALS} and {THEN} should match exactly how you have it written on your booking form, with no additional spaces.

Add conditional statements to confirmation page after booking 

Once you have your conditional statements created, add these to your Booking form > After Booking, and they will display on the confirmation page that displays to your booker once they've selecting a meeting time. 

Note: The preview window will only display the first of your conditional statements. 

Add conditional statements to confirmation email 

You can also add these conditional statements to your confirmation email under Notifications > Actions. Any email that goes to your booker can have these conditional statements added ( Recommended: Add conditional statements to the confirmation email after booking, and the reminder email before booking).

Add conditional statements to calendar event description

Conditional statements can also be added to the body of the calendar event description, under Notifications > Calendar events. This is how the booking will appear on both your calendar and your bookers.
