Tokeet Triggers Overview

Triggers, or Automations, are a key benefit of Tokeet.  A trigger is an instruction to Tokeet to perform a particular action when an event occurs. For example, triggers can be used to notify you and your guests via email or SMS when a new booking is received.  Tokeet currently does not automatically send email when events occur, so we recommend setting up triggers in order to receive account notifications.

Before creating a trigger, you need to build a Message Template.  Triggers require message templates to work.

Triggers are extremely powerful, and are easy to create in Tokeet.  

The Tokeet automations module only allows one template to be set per event sub-type. Please note that in order to create a very specific and detailed plan for automating your messaging you should familiarize yourself with our extremely powerful message automation product Automata.

  1. Select which Channel(s) you would like these triggers to fire for. Leaving this blank will fire for all channels.
  2. Select which rental(s) you would like these triggers to fire for. Leaving blank will fire for all rentals.
  3. Select which internal users to send the message to. At least 1 internal Tokeet user must be selected.
  4. Select the template to use for this trigger. For information on making templates please see the following article: Message Templates
  1. You can also create a template right here in the Automations module by typing it directly in the template editor below your trigger configuration.
  2. Choose whether to Send to Guest or leave unchecked. Triggers meant for only communication to staff should leave this option unchecked.
  3. Save your trigger.
  4. Set your trigger to active so that automatic messages are sent when the event you've chosen occurs.
Note: once a Trigger is created, it is important to be mindful of actions taken via the Tokeet dashboard as they may fire a trigger event each time. For example, repeatedly canceling and confirming a booking may send multiple email messages to a guest. Also, deleting bookings will result in any triggers set for booking cancellation to be fired.
