RightBooth provides you with a number of design options for emailing user’s event files.
This article explains how to solve the commonly asked questions:
- How do I automatically send emails to multiple email accounts?
- And can I give each user the choice to do this?
John and Sue are using RightBooth at their wedding reception and during the event they want all the RightBooth photos to be automatically emailed to their joint email account and also emailed to each of their parents email accounts.
Here’s how to do this.
1 - Set up RightBooth for Emailing
Read Section 1 of this article
2 - Turn on automatic emailing for photos
Select the tab: Event email
Un-tick ‘Send to user email address’
In the ‘To’ textbox, enter the email addresses of all the recipients, with each address on a separate line. In our example we have this:
Now, during the event, each set of photos that are captured by users will be automatically sent to the three specified email addresses without requiring the users to do anything.
The key to this is turning off the option 'Send to user email address'. If un-ticked, during the event users will not be shown the 'Email address' event screen and RightBooth will simply email user photos to your specified recipient list.
Give Each User the Choice to Email Their Photos
You can give each user the option of emailing the photos as follows:
Now during the event, after each user's photos have been captured, the 'Photo options' screen will be shown with the options 'Email' and 'Finished'. The user can then choose to email their photos to the recipient list (notice that we've edited the Email button text to be more informative):
And don't forget:
You can also apply this idea to user's videos and messages
Starting with version 6.2.3, the RightBooth application data files are now saved in the user's local application data folder (in a sub folder \RightBooth6). This has been changed in order to prevent potential problems caused by Microsoft's User Account Control restrictions (UAC) on Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 when multiple user accounts are available on the computer.
What are the RightBooth application data files?
These files include the RightBooth settings, default language choice, default event prompts, any test video recordings and the RightBooth web browser settings.
An example of a user's local AppData folder is as follows:
Prior to this version, the RightBooth application data files were always saved in the common application data folder: C:\ProgramData\RightBooth6.
If you are upgrading from an earlier version of RightBooth, the first time you run this new version, any files in the common application data folder will be automatically copied (one time) to the currently logged on user's local AppData folder. This will not affect the operation of RightBooth.
What are the Implications of This Change?
1) This now means that if there are multiple users of the same computer (i.e. multiple login accounts), each user will have their own RightBooth settings and their own application data files.
2) Any application data file access problems (caused by UAC) should no longer happen.
Note: if further file access restrictions have been placed on your computer's AppData\Local folders (for example by a System Administrator) then RightBooth may not work correctly.
