Some time ago, we met problem, when we should add congratulation into order confirmation for special customer group (another words:
manage Magento emails template)

After small research, I have not found any normal, and also that importnat, FREE extension that allows to do that.
So, we decided to spend some time and create this module for internal usage. The store management were happy :) Our customer was happy and
for sure I as developer also was happy :)

Since time come out, the extension was improved, to allow personalise not only order confirmation emails, but also invoice and shipments emails as well.
So, we are very glad to introduce you

Advanced Templates

extension.

For now we decided to upload it to Magento Connect as free extension, so you can download it there or visit our site
Products Page and also makes your customers happy:)

Now I would like to share with you some technical details about module implementation:

  • The Module rewrites Mage_Sales_Model_Order(Invoice,Shipment) and overide sendEmail() fuction.
  • We use some set of the rules to allow personalise what customer will recive this or other email. We use following
    conditions:
    • Customer groups
    • Store View
    • Payment Method
    • Shipment Method
    • and most important We completely reuse conditions from “Shopping Cart Rules”.
      So, you are able to send some email to customers that bought exactly this product, or bought goods with ttal more than 10 000$, and more and more….
  • If conditions are not met – the original functionality is used, so default behaviour is not affected
  • As template used standard Magento Transaction Emails
  • The rules number is not limited, so you can customise it as much as you need
