Automated Messaging

Send email and/or SMS text messages to customers automatically when trigger actions are performed.

Automated messaging refers to email and/or SMS text messages that you can schedule to send to your customers automatically, based on specific trigger actions. For instance, you may want to automatically send your customers:

  • Booking confirmation messages when they reserve a trip
  • Event reminder messages one day before their scheduled tour or activity
  • Messages following a trip asking them to leave a review for your business

Your Message Template Library comes equipped with a variety of pre-made message templates. You can edit both the content and auto-send settings of each one. You can also create your own message templates from scratch as needed.
