How to edit and customize your appointment notification emails

Customizing the content:

The Email Subject Line

Use %tags% to get your email subject line to dynamically pull data from your appointments and make your subject lines customized per calendar, appointment type, and client name.

An example of how your subject line will appear to your clients will be shown below.

You can also customize the subject line for each template group. Click on the template group and then edit the subject line to your liking.  Be sure to scroll to the bottom to "Save Template" to lock in that change.

 

The Email Body Template

You can also customize the body/template for your notifications by adding your own text and information for your clients.  You can also use the editor menu at the top to changing the font size/styling, add in images and links, or insert fields from intake forms or other appointment dependent information or buttons.
