How to notify your resources of a new booking with them

With Appointedd, you can choose to send email notifications to resources when they are booked for a service.

  • Hover over your business and click resources 
  • Click view info 
  • Click edit resource 
  • Enter the resource's email address
  • Flip the switch to send resource booking confirmation emails
  • Click save changes

This will now send notifications to your resources whenever they are booked.

What the email notification will include

  • The customer's name and email address
  • Any custom fields
  • The name of the resource the booking was made for
  • The service and category of the booking
  • The date and time of the booking
  • The price of the booking
  • An .ics calendar event (see more about this in this guide)

If you wish to have resource bookings reflect on the resource's external calendar e.g. Google, Apple, Outlook etc, the best thing to do is connect the resource's Appointedd calendar with their external calendar. Find full details on calendar sync here.

  • Tap add to VIP 
  • Go to your device settings
  • Tap notifications 
  • Tap mail 
  • Tap the slider to allow notifications
