BookingBug allows you to send the following automated SMS to your customers:

  • Booking confirmations - sent to the customer once they make a booking
  • Booking / session reminders - sent to the customer before the appointment to remind them
  • Post appointment follow-ups - sent to the customer after the appointment as a follow-up

To enable any of these SMS, you need to go to following area in your BookingBug account:

With Session Reminder SMS or Session First Follow-Up SMS you can choose how far before or after the appointment you wish them to be sent. Once the SMS types are ON, click Edit to set the time interval before or after the booking that the emails are sent.

As a business owner you can also receive automated SMS when bookings are made or altered. To enable:
