How reminders are triggered
Plugin is strongly dependent on CRON, make sure your daily and hourly crons are setup properly. It is required to have mail account setup correctly.
Each time plugin check if there are new reminders to be sent, timestamp of this action is stored and 2 same notifications are never sent to customer (even not by mistake). Once plugin is installed, last check is set to current timestamp to avoid sending old unrelevant notifications.
There is also possibility to delay mail sending function in order to align with mail client limits in your hosting provider.
Customize reminder emails
What is cool about this plugin is, that each reminder comes with own email template and set of keywords.
You can completely customize content of these reminders, put there own text or images, own promotional materials etc.
Using email templates, all reminders can be translated to any language from backoffice.
