Target customers

  1. Set your rules to target the right customers that will be receiving the payment requests. 
  2. Select the Reference attribute and the Amount attribute from the drop-down menus. 
  3. Select the Amount format. The amount format represents the way the amounts that are pulled from your DMS or other system integration are written. There are two ways the amounts can be written: 
    • In dollars: Numbers that appear as they are. The number 12.34 would equal an amount of 12,34$. 
    • In cents: Numbers that would need a decimal to represent their true value. The number 1234 would equal an amount of 12,34$.

If you are unsure about your amount format, you can find the information in a customer's profile.

  1. Click on Customers
  2. Click on the name of a customer that you know is compatible with the event that you are looking for. For example, if you are creating an automation based on a closed repair order, open a customer's profile that you know has a closed repair order. 
  3. Click on Events in the upper section of your customer's profile.
  4. Click on the last event that has the same name that you are targetting. 
  5. Look for the attribute that represents the total amount.
