Using variables means that you can personalize your automated communications, both to your clients and your staff. Bear in mind that for any variables that you put into notifications, contracts, canned responses, etc., you should ensure that the relevant fields on the booking or lead contact forms are required so the information is always available. Otherwise, a blank space may show to the customer and the text will not make sense.
