    Customizing the Auto-response Messages

    You can customize the auto-response messages that will be sent to prospects after they submit a Waiting List inquiry or after a unit becomes available using Interpolation.

    Interpolation refers to adding dynamic data from your form into otherwise static text. This is done by adding a key in double squared brackets within your text. 

    The key can be the Form Name of any field in your form (located under "Show Advanced"). If a Form Name says [auto], you can add one yourself or save the form to generate one first.

    Interpolation keys can also be one of the following predefined keys, which refer to the details of a building or city, if either is selected in some way.

    Building Interpolation Keys

    • [[property]] or [[building]]
    • [[building_header]]
    • [[building_type]]
    • [[address]] or [[property address]]
    • [[street_number]]
    • [[street_name]]
    • [[intersection]]
    • [[neighbourhood]]
    • [[postal]]
    • [[contact_name]]
    • [[property_phone]] or [[phone]]
    • [[extension]]

    City Interpolation Keys

    • [[city]]
    • [[province]]
    • [[province_code]]
    • [[country]]
    • [[country_code]]

    Example of a Follow-up Auto-response

    Hi [[name]],

    You are receiving this email because you signed up to our waiting list. We are happy to let you know that [[property]] has a unit available!

    You can call [[contact_name]] regarding this property at [[property_phone]], [[extension]].

    Thank you for your interest.

    Tip: An automated follow-up email will send automatically once a unit becomes available. To ensure a prospect does not receive a follow-up email following a certain time period after their initial response, be sure to fill out the Expiry field.
