Honor Your Customers’ Communication Preferences
If your management system integrates with Weave, you can choose to have Weave check the database to see if a customer has opted out of messages before an auto reminder is sent.
- Log in to the Weave portal
- Select Messages from the left menu
- Click Reminder Settings from the dropdown
- Click the toggle next to Honor Communication Preferences to turn the setting on
Can a hyperlink be added to automated reminders?
Yes. Remember, some phone providers and cell phone providers break templates over 160 characters into multiple messages. This can cause hyperlinks to break, so you can try shortening the template or sending the hyperlink in a following message to your clients.
Can we send out appointment reminders to more than one phone number for a customer?
Since we can only have one mobile number listed for each patient, that is the only number an appointment reminder will be sent to.
