Hello teachers,

"We had informed your dad before coming to your place."
"We informed your dad before coming to your place. "

Do we use had when it's happened a long time ago? Are both of these correct?

Thank you.

    I would use the first sentence if both events happened in the past; meaning informing your dad and coming to your place.

    The second sentence would be used if the people were still at your place and had informed your dad in the past.

    I might have not worded that correctly but hopefully it makes sense.
