Configure Rebooking Reminders

Rebooking reminders are a valuable tool for businesses looking to enhance client retention and streamline the appointment scheduling process. By leveraging automated marketing messages, businesses can ensure that clients are prompted to schedule their next appointments conveniently. In this article, we'll explore the steps to customize rebooking reminders

Things to know:

  • You can alter and personalize the content of your rebooking reminder templates if you subscribe to Growth, Premium, Enterprise, or Automated Email + SMS Marketing plans
  • For businesses not subscribed to the above plans, you will not be able to edit the templates, but you may still access your messages, change the reply-to and subject lines, and enable or disable automated messages 
  • If your rebooking reminders are configured to be delivered by SMS, clients will only receive these reminders if they have opted into Marketing SMS. For more details on SMS opt-in, learn here
  • The rebooking reminder templates are automatically generated and linked to every active service category configured within your service menu. Service categories marked with "Online Booking Disabled" will not be included in the rebooking reminders.

Customizing Rebooking Reminders

  1. Navigate to Marketing > Automated Messages
  2. Click the Marketing tab
  3. Here you will see your rebooking reminder templates. Hover over the desired template to expose the option to View/Activate
    • View - Click "View" to access the template and customize it
    • Activate - Click on "Activate" to enable the template to be sent to your clients
  4. On the template, you can customize the following:
    • Service Frequency - This allows you to configure the timeframe in which this reminder should be sent if the client does not book this service category
    • Delivery By - Choose the method of delivery - email, text message, or push notification. If the method selected is not available for a client, we will try other available methods even if it was not selected. For instance, if you select email as the delivery method but the client does not have an email address on file, we will send the notification via text message.
      • Email - The client must have an email address on file and be opted in to receive marketing emails

      • Text Message - The client must have a mobile number on file and be opted in to receive marketing SMS. Double opt-in is also required for marketing SMS

      • Push Notification - The client must have the MyTime Guest App installed on their mobile device

    • Reply-to name - Name of the business that appears when your clients reply to the automated email. We will use the business name that was added to the business profile page
    • Subject - The subject name that will be displayed whenever the clients receive the message 

To edit the body of the template:

  1. Hover over the highlighted section
  2. Click on the edit icon 
  3. You can choose various options from the editor to design your template. Hover over each icon for a description. Advanced users can insert HTML or emojis to make their emails more visually appealing
  4. When you are finished editing the template, click Save
