Update: New Shortcodes! Automate, Simplify, and Reduce Errors

New Feature

For our first Hackathon, I wanted to add more shortcodes.

We've seen shops implement so many interesting automations with the few shortcodes we already had – it was clear that shortcodes are tremendously valuable.

Shortcodes pull dynamic content from Printavo about invoices and customer details. Instead of writing a client's company name, John's Lanscaping for example, you enter a shortcode like:

[customer-company-name]

The shortcode above would become "John's Landscaping" on any Printavo communications or messages.

These shortcodes dramatically simplify common repetitive tasks and copy/paste procedures – and reduce keying errors.

To access shortcodes:

  • Open a Printavo Invoice.
  • Click on Messages 
  • Reference shortcodes at any time by clicking Using Shortcodes below the Messages form
