Get Taxi Booking Drivers

If a driver is already assigned, he/she will disappear from Drop down list for other cars.

When a new Order is submitted at the front end Drivers who are assigned to the same Car type will receive a chain email.

Car with lowest ID receives the first email and if Driver clicks Accept, Order is assigned to him/her.

If the Driver clicks Decline the Order is emailed to the next Car ID in the chain.

Order is Waiting before being Accepted by the Driver, after he/she accepts status changes to Accepted - emails are sent to the customer and admin(s).

To get your system sending Accept/Decline emails to the next driver in the driver chain (if a driver has not responded in the given time in your settings) you will have to add a Cron job to your Hosting control panel (contact your hosting support if adding cron jobs is not obvious or you have troubles with that setting). Your cron job should be triggered every 5 mins and if you use "wget" it should look similar to:

*/5 * * * * wget -O /dev/null "http://YOURDOMAIN.COM/index.php?option=com_tbdrivers&task=checkNotifications"

Replace "YOURDOMAIN.COM" with your actual website.
