Script of the Month: “Ask” Scripts

Did you know that by using a simple Ask script, you can have Rent Manager® automatically enter a sender’s name in a Letter Manager letter?

John Hancock




Rather than creating separate letter templates that are specific to individual senders (you, your owners, your maintenance manager, etc.), you can use the following script to ask the user which name should appear in the signature line of the finished letter:

[ASK(Whose name should appear in the signature?)]

Just place the script at the end of the letter (where the signature belongs).Now, when the letter is being generated, the user will be asked Whose name should appear in the signature?. The name entered will then appear in the letter’s signature line.

Also, if you format the Ask script in a “scripty” font, the name will be formatted accordingly (and will look like handwriting).
