The outbound email that is sent along with your guest’s picture can be customized to varying degrees, depending on which HALO plan you are on.
Note: Simple Booth Classic (formerly Event Edition) and the HALO Special Event plan do not include email customization.
Emailing from HALO Lite is simple and straightforward. Enter the name of the person or organization you want to give your photo credit to. Typically, it makes most sense to enter the name of the event host.
You can also update the name of the event.
HALO Lite emails will be sent through our server from the default email address, "firstname.lastname@example.org."
HALO Standard and Pro
Emails from HALO Standard and Pro tiers can be fully customized. These emails will appear in plain text, and if you’d like you can customize further using HTML.
Email address customization
HALO Standard and Pro support a custom outbound email address. This involves authorizing Simple Booth to send emails on behalf of your domain by updating some settings on your domain registrar. Learn more about how to accomplish that here!
Note: HALO will default to sending emails through our server from the email address, "email@example.com" until you are able to set this up properly.
Simple Booth allows you to use HTML in the email body and has placeholders that allows you to do things like embed a thumbnail of the photo or customize a button that links to the gallery.
HTML doesn't have to be complicated at all--you can be as simple or as detailed as you would like! There are some good resources online to teach you more about HTML if you're interested, but we'll fill you in on some basics below.
HTML Tag Pair
<h1> ... </h1>
Header or title text. 1 is very large, 2 is large, 3 is medium.
<b> ... </b>
<i> ... </i>
<u> ... </u>
<p> ... </p>
<br> ... </br>
Links to a thumbnail representation of the media that can be displayed in the email body.
Links to the Gallery that contains all the event media. Does not work with private Galleries.
Looking for another [media-type]? <a href="[gallery-url]'>View the full gallery</a>
A link to the guest's picture page on the Gallery. When used, this will replace the default, "View your photo" link so you can create your own call-to-acton or custom designed button.
<a href="[page-url]">View your[media-type]</a>
<a href="[page-url]"><img src="[thumbnail-url]"></a>
Word or phrase describing the type of picture your guest captured, such as "GIF" or "photo."
"Thanks for capturing a [media-type] at the event!"
