You can add a service reminder to a customer. You can set this up to send automatic/manual reminders to your customer that a service is due. You can send these reminders via phone call, email, or letter. It is important that you set these up within customer details before you try to send a service reminder.
Please note, we do not send multiple property messages via SMS. You may see the option for SMS in the dropdown. However, you will not be able to select this when adding/editing the service reminder against a work address.
How to send a service reminder
- Search for the customer you would like to add a service reminder to/with the service reminder you want to send.
- Click on the customer name to open their account. Navigate using the tabs across the top. Click 'Reminders'.
- You will see a page with reminders. Click 'Add new service reminder' on the top right of the service reminder section or 'Edit' next to a service reminder.
- In the 'Send to' section, you will see a list of contacts related to this customer. The method of reminder will show, i.e letter, phone, or email. If the method of reminder you want is not in this list it is because it has not been ticked within contact details.

Make sure you have an email address saved, a telephone number, and a full address.
