Messages System: Message Types

messagetype_messenger_contextMessage Types describe the kind of message that is being sent and describe what the content of the message will be about. There are Message types for payment related messages (payment received, payment reminder, payment declined, refund issued). There are Message types for five registration related messages (registration approved, not approved registration, registration pending, registration declined, registration cancelled, newsletter). Message types are attached to triggers[1]


  1. Triggers simply refer to the places where a message might be “triggered” to be sent. Examples are: when a payment is made, when a registration is approved, when a registration is cancelled. Notice the word when, that is indicative that triggers are very much event based. ?
