When booking an appointment within VanillaSoft, you can have an appointment notification email sent automatically to the Agent and/or the Contact. In this article, we will cover setting up Email Notifications to both the User as well as the Contact.
Note: in order for the notification email to be sent, you must have the ability to send emails from your VanillaSoft account. It may be required that you configure your email account to do this. For more information on how to get your email account configured, take a look at our Setting Up Your Email Account article
