Gmail automation

Now that Gmail has been added, you can create an automation to make use of that connection!

  1. Select Automation from the main menu.
  2. Click Add New Automation.
  3. Decide on an Automation Name, and select the Location and Campaign this automation is for. 
  4. Click Proceed.
  5. Choose a Trigger. You have four choices:

    Connect: When the guest connects to WiFi
    Disconnect: When the guest disconnects from WiFi
    Inactive: When the guest has not connected to the WiFi for a certain number of days
    Birthday: On the guest's birthday each year. 
    Note that most login methods do not collect birth date information; you can, however, request that information from Facebook,
  6. Choose a Delay. There are two options:

    Real Time: The automation will fire as soon as the trigger happens.
    Delay: The automation will fire a specific length of time after the trigger happens. This can be measured in minutes, hours, or days.
  7. Choose the Send frequency. You have three choices:

    Always: The automation will fire every time the trigger occurs.
    Once: The automation will only fire the first time the trigger occurs for that contact.
    By Visits: The automation will fire based on a rule you set up based on the number of visits.

    The By Visits rule has two parts:
    When: Choose between Before, On, or After
    Visits: The relevant number of visits that changes whether or not this automation will fire.

    For example, an automation set as When: Before and Visits: 5 will fire the first four times the contact connects to the WiFi, but will not fire after that.
  8. Select Email.
  9. Choose your Gmail app from the dropdown menu, then enter the Sender NameSender Email, and the Email Subject. Click Proceed.
  10. Select Start From Template, and choose from our large collection of templates to use as a starting point.
