Overture allows you to setup artist confirmation emails to be generated automatically so you can check booking information and receive conformation of their availability this can help you to manage your bookings with your artists more efficiently.

It's very easy to set these up through the messages section of your Overture settings. Head over to settings and in the sidebar find the messages option. Within this screen locate the section titled Artist Confirmation .

You can use the form here to edit how you would like the message to be generated and how you would like the content in the message to appear. In the screenshot below for example you can see that the message is generated when the booking status is changed to Awaiting Confirmation and then once the conformation is sent by the artist the booking status is changed to Confirmed. You could easily change that to Pending or any other status that you may have setup.
