With the help of Acuity Scheduling and SMS Alert, you can send automated text messages to your clients about the exact time of their appointments. It is a great feature that will make your life easy and you don’t have to worry about missing a single appointment or being late for it.
Acuity Scheduling and SMS Alert is a very useful integration that is used by many businesses these days. It helps in many ways and makes it easier for both your clients and you. Let me tell you how it works.
In order to integrate the two, you will need to input your Acuity Scheduling login details at the SMS Alert website. You will then be asked to set your appointment date and time so that they can be sent to your clients. Once the appointment time has been set, you will be able to send SMS alerts to your clients from within Acuity Scheduling using SMS Alert. You will be able to send texts like “Hi, this is Acuity Scheduling sending you a reminder that your appointment is on Monday at 3:00 PM.” This option will only work if you are using SMS. If you are not using SMS for appointment reminders then this feature won’t work.
You can also use the option to send reminders via email as well. In order to use it you will have to get the mailing address of your clients. Most of your clients will have their email addresses available on their profiles. In case they do not have their email addresses listed on their profile, you can always contact them directly and ask them for their email address so that you can send the reminders via email.
Once the appointment time has been set, you can create an event in Acuity Scheduling and select “SMS Alert” as the reminder option. You will then be able to select whether you want to send a reminder via email or SMS. If you select “SMS alert”, you will be able to enter the phone number of your client. You can either enter their phone number manually or use a bulk upload process by uploading a file containing all of their phone numbers listed in a CSV format. This can be done easily using any spreadsheet editor like Microsoft Excel or Google Docs.
The next step is pretty simple. You just need to click save in order to save the appointment information in Acuity Scheduling and the SMS alert number for your client in SMS Alert. Once the appointment is saved, you will receive an email from Acuity Scheduling with all the information that you need in order to send the reminder message to your client via SMS Alert. You will find all of the information needed for creating and sending an SMS alert message in this email. There will be an SMS Alert URL along with a link to the SMS Alert app that will allow you to send the reminder message right from within Acuity Scheduling. This is how you can manage appointment reminders via text messages in Acuity Scheduling.
