Creating a Scheduled Email Template

Scheduled Email Module allows the creation of dynamically formatted email templates that can be scheduled to be sent to customers, drivers, and/or affiliates based on criteria in the reservation or invoice. Great examples of Scheduled Emails are 24 hour trip reminders, 30 day past due invoice reminders, and automated emails when statuses are set.
