Custom Property Variables allow you to add custom fields to Lodgix that are not included by default. These fields can be used to store information about each property, that can then be included in guest communication.
Custom Property Variables can be accessed from Settings > Custom Variables...
Adding a New Variable
Variables can be added by clicking the "Add Variable" button on the Property Variables tab.
Add Variable Inteface
Name: This is the identifier that is used within Lodgix when adding the variable as a merge tag in an email or PDF. For new variables, a default name will be prefilled. If edited, it will automatically be converted to upper case and CUSTOM will be added to the beginning.
Description: This is the name of the field. For example, if the field is for a WiFi Password, the name might be "WiFi Password"
Length: Length of the input field, measured in characters. Enter a higher number if you will be entering more data.
Rows: This is the number of rows present in the input field. More rows are only necessary if you are adding a notes field or something with multiple sentences.
Default Value: A default value for the variable, if desired.
Setting the Custom Variables for Each Property
Custom Property Variables will be available from the "Custom" tab within the setup for each property. Click on the Custom tab and you will see the variables you defined. These can be completed with unique information for each property.
Adding Variables to Communication
There will be a merge tag for the new variables within all areas of the application where variables can be referenced. Inserting this variable into an email or pdf template will substitute the variable with the actual value for that specific property.
