SMS Tags - What are they? was created by Stuart
Hi,
can you let me know what the tags are for use with SMS (eg START_TIME) so we can send confirmation of the start times to our customers, employees and admins via text messages.

If this is not available can you send a quote for how much making this available would cost? Happy to pay a couple of hundred bucks AUD.

Thanks,
Ian

Hi Ian,
Actually, you can use tag: {Order_details} to show all information of orders. Order order can contain more than one timeslots, so we can't use one tag (eg START_TIME) to show start time of booked timeslots.
Thanks
Dam

Hi,
I've inserted that exact tag into our SMS messages but it just comes through to the customer as 'Order details' without any details. I used {Order_details}.

Thanks,
Stu

Any update on this. Clickatell is working and it is just the tag that doesn't seem to be expanding for the messages. See the string used (attached).

Hi,
we just want to sms/text the booking details to customers via clickatell. You wrote earlier in this thread that the tag {Order_details} would do this but it didn't work. Let me know.

Thanks,
Stu

Thanks,
as I was saying in my original message. You probably should do this because only sending an ID number isn't very helpful. We're happy to chip in a couple of hundred dollars AUD to develop this. Others may be interested.

Hi Stuart,
If you want to add that tag into SMS content fo customers, you can follow below steps
1. Open file: root -> components -> com_osservicesbooking -> helpers -> common.php
2. Find:
$tempArr    = array('confirmtoEmployee','canceltoEmployee','paymenttoEmployee');
and change to
$tempArr    = array('confirmtoEmployee','canceltoEmployee','paymenttoEmployee','confirm');
Good luck
Dam

Hi,
I made the change and the SMS comes through ok but without the booking information. Is there anything specific I need to include as an activated tag?

Stu

edit: I got it working! Your wrote {Order_details} in your email but put {Orders_details} in the code. Nice!. Can you send me the php coding to include admin and customers in the sms notifications? Great work and Thanks.
