FooEvents for WooCommerce integrates with the WooCommerce Follow-ups plugin which makes it possible to send automated follow-up emails to attendees using the event date, booking date and check-in time as triggers.
While our WooCommerce Follow-ups integration is included in the core FooEvents for WooCommerce plugin, you will need to purchase the WooCommerce Follow-ups plugin separately on the WooCommerce Marketplace in order to take advantage of this functionality.
Before proceeding further, it is critical that you are familiar with how the WooCommerce Follow-ups plugin works and are able to set up standard follow-up emails and use the built-in triggers. WooCommerce Follow-ups provides extensive documentation that will guide you through the process of setting up follow-up emails. Once you are comfortable using WooCommerce Follow-ups, please proceed to the following sections where we will go through the various custom triggers that are added by FooEvents.

To create a new email:
- Navigate to Follow-Up > Email in the left sidebar of your WordPress admin area
