Notification Placeholders

Date: November 23, 2021


Amelia has placeholders for email notifications which are supposed to be replaced with real data from your employees, customers, extras, custom fields, and other booking data. For example, %customer_full_name% will be replaced with the customer's First Name, and the Last Name, that they entered when they booked the appointment, so if John Doe booked an appointment, you can configure an email notification that says "Dear %customer_full_name%" and they'll receive an email that says "Dear John Doe".

Note: All linked placeholders like %customer_panel_url%, %employee_panel_url%, %appointment_cancel_url%, %event_cancel_url%, and Zoom placeholders are programmatically generated URLs, and if you want to create a hyperlink to these URLs, they need to be added as placeholders, not direct URLs.

For example, when you configure the Customer Panel and add its URL to Amelia Settings/Roles/Customer, and you want to add a line in the email like "To access your Customer Panel, please click here", the template needs to look like this:

This is because the Customer Panel URL that's sent to the customer appends a login token to the URL, so a customer either logs in with this token (if you disabled the password as being mandatory in Amelia Settings/Roles/Customer) or sends the customer to the password creation form.


These placeholders can be used in titles and descriptions of Amelia Settings/Integrations (Google Calendar, Outlook Calendar, Zoom, Lesson Space, Facebook Pixel, and Google Analytics), along with Payment MetaData and description, in Amelia Settings/Payments.
