    How much does the text reminder add-on cost? In the UK?

    UK text messages are $10/month for 100 messages.

    I paid for an Add-on of text reminders for the past two months at least and every time I ask patient do they receive they say no. I think it was a waste of time paying for it as it does not work. I will be cancelling it until such a point you can guarantee it will work and yes I was using valid mobile numbers.

    I'm paying for the SMS. But, not being sent. I live in Australia. Is this service not available? If not, can I please get a refund.

    Had a patient try to reply to the notification text to cancel appointment.  Do we get notifications on replies to the texts?

    Currently, SMS notifications are 1-way.  Allowing responses to be collected is something we have planned for future development.

    Thank you for the text reminder service option.  Most of my clients love receiving their texts 2 hours before their appointments.  It would be very helpful if there was a option to make text reminders a default per client.  This a feature offered through the past scheduling service I used and my clients frequently forget to click the text box when booking themselves.

    I've been having issues with the text message time before the appointment. 

    I set it to 1 hour, and they don't get anything. I set it to 2 hours, they get it at the time of the appointment. So I experimented with different times and I can't figure out how to get it to work for 1 hour before the appointment. 

    Seems glitchy

    It would be so nice if our own cell phones could be linked to the text messages to that if the patient responded, we could message them back.

    Also, if would be handy to have a check box for each patient that we could set a default as to if they would like email, text, or phone reminders. I can't remember when booking the patient which they prefer.

    Thanks

    I agree with Emma up there...having the ability to link our own phones to the text message so when clients/patients respond to them we would be able to respond back or for sure at least know they responded in some way.

    I kept hoping that was the change that we made. It would be a great service if clients could respond to us. Any chance this is a feature that will be added soon?

    Amy,

    Currently, if you want to add a phone number to reply to, you would have to modify the Appointment Reminder Text Message template.  You would have to add it to the body of the message.  Login as admin and click on the gear icon (top right header), and under the template heading click on notifications.
