Email Shipment Confirmations to Recipients
Currently all email confirmations, order and shipment, are sent to the buyer. This request is to add an option to also or alternately send shipment confirmations to the recipient.
This would, of course, mean you would need to collect an email address for the ship-to address and CMS would know not to attempt to send shipment confirmations to recipients that had no email addresses.
In 10.0 this will be available for single recipient orders. The implementation will have to be rather different for multi-recipient orders both from a coding standpoint and what you’d want to send (more of a packing slip with no pricing, for example.)
