Notification rules allow you to notify MyVR users, property owners, renters, and third parties of events in MyVR. You can send both email and text message alerts. To get started, go to Setup > Notifications and then navigate to Notification Rules.
To create a new notification rule, click on New Rule
Next, enter a name for the rule
Add one or multiple recipient(s) for the notifications. Recipients can be a MyVR user, a property owner, a custom recipient, or the Primary Notification Contact. The Primary Notification Contact refers to the email address and phone number you entered in the Primary Notification section of Notifications.
Select the events that you would like the recipients to be notified of. You can have notifications for all events or a subset of events.
Finally, add restrictions and create the notification rule. You can choose wether or not to send the notification based on Property Group, Property, Time, and Weekday.
Your rule is now ready. The recipients you selected will be notified of the events you chose within the limits of the restrictions you set.
Assigning an inquiry to a MyVR user will cause MyVR to send all event notifications for that inquiry to the selected MyVR user. To assign an inquiry to a user, go to Messages > Inquiries
Now select Assign User from the action menu for the inquiry you'd like to assign.
Choose a MyVR user to assign the inquiry to. Click Close after you have made your selection. If you'd like to change or remove your selection, click the X next to the name of the user you selected.
