In our earlier posts, we have discussed how to setup delivery dates and charges for recurring weekdays, specific dates and time slots. After every order is placed, you receive a confirmation email providing all the delivery details. But what if you need the order details as a downloadable file to store it on your computer for future use or to keep a log of it for a quick check? Then a new feature Send delivery information as attachments (ICS files) in email notifications will serve the purpose.
This feature of Product Delivery Date Pro for WooCommerce plugin will allow customers to export deliveries as ICS file after placing the order and will be sent to him as an attachment in email confirmation. Customers can also import the file to their personal calendars like outlook, google calendar, etc.
How this works?
