Introducing Review Reminder

Review Reminder extension allows sending notification emails automatically at a set time after an order has been placed:

  • Product conditions;
  • Cart conditions;
  • Customer group conditions;
  • Rich text;
  • Mail log;
  • Mass actions.

Review Reminder extension for Magento 2 in straightforward notification tool aimed at generating more product reviews by sending automatic email notifications.

The workflow is simple. Every notification is send with a separate rule - a basic extension entity that controls when and on what conditions the notification is sent.

When setting up an extension rule the storeowner defines:

  • Review reminder subject and text;
  • Delivery time - to deliver the notification after a set time the order has been invoiced and shipped;
  • Cart conditions - if order has been placed for a particular total or the parcel weight exceeds a set limit;
  • Customer conditions - including customer group and store view;
  • Product conditions - if order contains products of a particular color or set manufacturer.

After the rule or a set of rules is created the extension starts tracking all orders placed. When order obtains 'Complete' status the rule, if conditions are met, schedules a review reminder. All scheduled and sent reminders can be found in the Mail Log, where they can be manually sent, cancelled or deleted. If customer writes a review before the reminder is sent - an email delivery is cancelled automatically, to prevent spamming customers with irrelevant messages.



Extension Settings

The extension allows sending review reminders automatically from a particular email address. To define the email address for sending notifications and test extension before going live, the storeowner navigates to the extension settings at Stores > Configuration > Aheadworks extensions > Review Reminder.

  • Test Email Recipient - defines an email address all test review reminders will be sent to;
  • Enable Test Mode - defines if all review reminders should be sent to Test Email Recipient, which helps evaluating the reminder look and feel.
  • Keep Emails for, days - defines for how many days sent review reminders should be kept in the mail log.

Once done with the settings the storeowner clicks on the Save Config button to apply any changes made.

The review reminders are scheduled upon order obtaining 'Complete' status. Meaning that the reminder will be sent after a time set in the Send field upon order being invoiced and shipped.

Then the storeowner decides on what conditions the review reminder is sent. There are five types of conditions that work together:

  • Store View - defines for what store view the rule is active;
  • Customer Groups - defines to what customer groups the review reminder is sent;
  • Cart Conditions - defines what items should be orders for the review reminder to trigger, including total, shipping region, payment method;
  • Product Conditions - defines products with what attributes should be ordered for the review reminder to trigger, including manufacturer, product category, color;
  • Product Type - defines what types of products should be ordered for the review reminder to trigger.


Once every rule option is set the storeowner clicks 'Save' button. The review reminders will now be sent to all customers with orders matching the conditions set after a defined time.

'for' Directive

Order Item Display

With the 'for' directive, you can 'walk' through any object collection that can be iterated (typically, it's intended to walk through the item collection of the Order object (depending on the current rule and the event context) ).

The directive syntax looks as follows:

{{for item in object_name}}
// iterated content

Object_name is an item collection object that will be iterated (typically, an item collection of the Order. Item parameter is the name of the object presenting the item inside of the iteration.

For example, if you want to list order items, then your code might look like this:

{{for item in orderData.all_visible_items}}
{{var item.qty_ordered|formatDecimal}} x {{var}}



Mail Log

All scheduled, sent and delivered review reminders can be tracked in the Mail Log. To get to the Mail Log the storeowner proceeds to Marketing Review Reminder by Aheadworks Mail Log.
