Send Email Notifications to Suppliers or Printers


When a customer 'proofs' a product, you often need to let your printer know that a new order has been placed and there is a PDF ready for printing.

It is possible to notify your printer in 2 ways:

  • Send an automatic email to the printer
  • Send the 'print ready' PDF automatically to your printers FTP area to go straight in to their production flow.

 

Send an automatic email to the printer


1) Logon to https://www.coreprint.net/admin(external link)
2) Navigate to Supplier > Product Order Config > Link Criteria
3) Click the 'New' link to create a new criteria

  • Enter a 'Criteria Label' e.g. 'Send auto email to My Printer Ltd'
  • Select the email address of the printer/users to which you require to receive an "Order Notification Email" by moving them from the left list, to the right.

4) Click the 'Save' button to save the criteria

We now need to link the new criteria to the product(s)

5) Navigate to Supplier > Product Order Config > Link Products To Criteria
6) Search for your product(s) and click the tick box next to the product on the left hand side.
