Schedulista sends automated confirmation emails and reminder emails prior to appointments to provide them information about their upcoming appointment, as well as remind them of the appointment so they don't miss it.
We also offer automated follow-up emails that can be sent after an appointment has been completed. If you've set up a general follow-up email, you may need to set up an alternate email for specific circumstances.
Benefits of follow-up emails
Say thanks to clients for using your services
Encourage clients to book their next appointment
Include additional information clients should know following their appointment
Provide links to review sites or services for your business
Notes on links and formatting text
You can use limited HTML markup to add links or style the text in the custom message.
Links (more info)
When you paste a URL (ex. https://www.schedulista.com) into the custom message field and save, it will automatically convert to a link on the summary page and in the emails. You can also use the HTML anchor tags (<a>) to hyperlink words. (e.g., <a href="https://www.schedulista.com">Click here</a> = Click here)
Text formatting (more info)
To format your text, the following markup is available: Bold (<b>), Strong Importance (<strong>), Italicize (<i>), Emphasize (<em>), Underline (<u>), Strikethrough (<s>)
Lists (more info)
You can also add unordered lists (with bullets) or ordered lists (with numbers) using the <ul> and <ol> HTML tags.
Note: Schedulista does not host any images, documents, or files to
download. Schedulista also does not have storage for clients to
upload files while booking. You can include links from other
websites or cloud storage services to download or upload.
