    we manage a training calendar that advertises courses by different trainers in various locations. is it possible to have booking “notification” emails sent to trainers email addresses when users book their courses from our calendar. So, Trainer A gets an email to inform them when people are booking their course(s) ?
    Or do all bookings get email notifications to the same address (by default WP admin) ?

    Hi Ian,

    Yes, it is with a bit of custom code:

    function my_booking_notification_email( $emails, $booking_id ){
          $event_id = eo_get_booking_meta( $booking_id, 'event_id');
          $notification_email = get_post_meta($event_id, 'notification_email');
          if ($email) {
              $emails[] = $notification_email;
          }
          return $emails;        
    }
    add_filter( 'eventorganiser_booking_notification_email', 'my_booking_notification_email', 10, 2 );
    

    This code looks for a custom field on the event named notification_email and adds it the list of emails to be notified (by default it would be just the site admin).

    You could replace $emails[] = $notification_email; with $emails = [$notification_email] to just notify that email (and not the site admin).

    And you could also replace

    $notification_email = get_post_meta($event_id, 'notification_email');
    

    with some other way of getting an email (e.g. getting it from the email attached to the event organiser).

    Hi, I have followed the instructions and created this as a plugin as per your “Where should I put code from the tutorials?” but an email never gets sent to the notification_email address. Any ideas if I need to do anything else?

    Hi Christian,

    I’d recommend putting in some error logging first to ensure your code is being executed. Or failing that, calling exit to halt the script which should end up in a white page (so don’t use that in production).

    Assuming it isn’t executed, make sure the plug-in (I’m assuming a simple php file here) you’ve created is in the root of wp-content/mu-plugins – i.e. so not a subfolder of mu-plugins.

    Thanks Stephen, I created the mu-plugins folder and moved the php file but still doesnt work. To be honest I am not skilled in this. Would you be willing to assist for a donation?
