Table of contents


In the Contacts > Configuration > Mailing > Contact type you can create mail contact type.

A mail contact type is defined by a name that will be displayed in the backoffice and a code that will be used to find contacts related to this type.

Then, you will need to define the mailing types for contacts. To achieve this there is a field called Mail Contact Types into the contact form view.

Last, to select proper contacts from email template configuration, you will set the To (partner) field using jinja template like this (assuming object as a field partner_id): ${object.partner_id.contact_by_types(‘your_code1’,’your_code2’)}
