Setting up notifications are a vital part of scheduling, because they ensure that your customers are kept informed of the status of your meeting, and reminded of upcoming meetings. You can customize when they are sent out and how they are delivered to your customers in the Customer notifications section. 

Customer notifications

You can access settings for customer notifications by clicking the tap at the top of the booking calendar builder. (Figure 1)

Here, you can customize customer notification templates, or use the default: system template. The default customer notification template will apply to all new booking calendars. The format of this workflow is displayed below the options for which workflow you'd like to use. 

You can customize when and why customers receive notifications on this page. There are three main meeting points:

  • Meeting is booked
  • Meeting rescheduled
  • Meeting canceled

You can select whether you'd like your customers to be reminded via their provided email address, or - if they have provided their cellphone number - by SMS.
