Shortcodes

Shortcodes (merge fields) allow you to use placeholders that will update with the relevant information automatically when sent. For example @@firstname@@ will be replaced automatically with the guest's first name, or @@room_number@@ will be replaced with the room number automatically, etc. This allows you to create personal and relevant message templates.
