Use Contact's Email 1 and Email 2 field in Communication Triggers

    Many people provide both work and personal email addresses.  We don't always know which one they use most often or will get the best response.  Exposing email 2 in addition to email 1 would be a big help.  We would like the option of sending to both emails using the same trigger.  

    Thanks

    This would be of great benefit to us too as our students provide both personal and business email addresses. Thank you.

    This is a very sensible addition. We are currently using the email 2 for the 'bookers' email as sometimes we don't have a personal address and we need at least some way to communicate since the warning for duplicates emails exists, and more importantly there still isn't a way to book a named delegate on with a booking contact, its still either/or and not both which it really should be.

    Oh crikey Julie - being new to using this system and now starting to add our IHT events to the system, I hadn't realised if you added a Booker Contact you can't add named delegates....

    How do you get around that with your communication triggers when using 'Booking Contact' to send key event details/request to the booker vs. notifying the instructors who's attending?

    Thanks,

    Lindsey

    The best is can have options to include both email 1 and email 2 in communication trigger. Otherwise email 2 will not be useful.

    I have found that sometimes clients give their personal email for email 2 and if they change jobs we still have contact, but if triggers don't go to email 1 and 2 then we have lost that client!

    It would also be helpful if we could choose both email fields - we frequently have trainees with an assistant who manages their calendar, and this would make it easier to include them on joining instructions and follow up messages.

    We're looking into this one now.  We've noticed that 2 separate issues were intertwined here.  

    1) There is a request to use the primary email field as a merge field.  

    This is pretty straight forward, and we're looking into adding that now.

    2) Being able to send communication triggers to an alternate email on a contact, or to several emails on a contact.  

    This will take a bit more design and thought, but we're looking at it to see what we can do.

    The first item above has been released today, to allow the primary email field to be used as a merge field.  I'll leave this idea open to focus on the second item, being able to send communication triggers to email addresses on a contact record other than the primary.

    Being able to send event emails/communication triggers both Email 1 and Email 2 would  be really useful, for all of the reasons listed in different comments above!

    For us it probably isn't a 'need to have' but would be a really good 'nice to have'!

    I like to think it is a Email1 and/or Email 2. I agree it is a 'nice to have' as I'm currently sending emails with a workaround. I think it is mentioned before but we actually come across it quite often as we deal with a reseller/end user or another 2nd party who wants either to forward the emails themselves or at least want to know about it.
