Variables are elements that can be inserted in email and sms templates (Settings//General Settings//Email and SMS settings). These variables will denote the chosen item after the booking is made. For example you have 2 providers: Mary and John. In email template you insert text "You have booked a service with [unitprovider]". If the client chose on the booking page provider Mary, they would receive the following text "You have booked a service with Mary", if they chose John, they would receive the text "You have booked a service with John."<br><br>
