What is SMS Integration For?

SMS Integration allows you to send SMS message notifications to customers and staff. Once set up and enabled, customers can receive a text message to confirm their booking (if they entered a mobile number) or send a proposal via text message. You can also set up schedules notifications to send SMS text messages (please see the Scheduled Notifications article for more info.). As an admin, you can also send your customer a text including the link to their manage booking page using the Send Link via SMS button from the Bookings list:

If SMS Integration is set up and enabled, staff can also be notified via text message about bookings they have been assigned to. Staff members are able to update whether they receive Text Notifications by logging in, clicking Edit Profile, and selecting the Send me Email Notifications checkbox.
