What are auto-messages?
Auto-messages help you to send the right message to your customers at the right time.
You choose which message to send, when to send it, and at what time – we'll take care of getting it sent.
How to set up auto-messages
Auto-messages can be set up with a few quick clicks by visiting Settings > Auto-messages.
There's more details about setting up auto-messages here.
Once you've set up an auto-message, we'll automatically schedule it to send whenever your chosen event occurs.
You'll clearly see that an auto-message is scheduled to be sent, and can choose not to send them for particular quotes, invoices, jobs, or events.
For example, here's what you'll see for each quote if you've set up a quote follow-up auto-message:
Selecting the '…' actions menu gives you a few options:
- Preview the auto-message to see full details of what will be sent, when it will be sent, and to which customer details.
- Choose to Don't send auto-message if you don't want this particular auto-message to send. You'll be able to re-enable the auto-message if you change your mind.
- Change auto-message settings lets you make changes to the settings for what gets sent and when for this event.
