The following ideas have been implemented or researched for inclusion with the folowing broad areas to be covered:

Welcome Program

Status: Welcome email template built, Job created and active. * Welcome newly registered customer (also have welcome for newly subscribed customer). Kick off the "Welcome" Job which is the place to dispatch other jobs. * Send "Welcome" email - built with store header, welcome html text block and store footer. * Dispatch more jobs as needed.

Cart Abandonment Program

CRON run once a day to send templated emails when: * Cart abandoned after 24 hours (triggers on previous day only). DONE * Cart abandoned after 7 days (triggers on day 7 only). NOT WORKING YET === 1 Day after === Status: CRON implemented and Job coded (AbandonedCart.php) Template Action: CART_ABANDONED Status: Coded and Automated Job setup and running! System to send an email when cart is abandoned after 24 hours. User must be Registered and Logged in to add to cart - so cart ID is tied to an email :) Copy sent to store owner. === 7 Day Alert email === Status: CRON implemented and Job coded (AbandonedWeekOldCart.php) Template Action: CART_7DAY_ABANDONED CRON Job blade checks for cart date 7 days old and sends an email to the customer. Also sends an email to the store admin.
