Note: As of October 7, 2019, this feature is being discontinued and replaced with push notifications through the Schedulista mobile app. Same information sent but faster and tapping the notification will view the appointment in the mobile app.
Clients can opt to receive text (SMS) reminders for their appointments. As a service provider, you can also opt to receive text notifications whenever clients schedule, reschedule, or cancel an appointment online.
The text notifications are in addition to the email notifications you will always receive.

Notification for same day appointments only
To be notified by text only if a client schedules an appointment for the same day (or schedules for the same day and then cancels the same day), you can check the box next to Only if same day appointment. You will not be sent text notifications at any other time.
