If you’re looking for appointment reminder software that’s affordable, easy to set up, easy to use, and reduces your no-shows, GoReminders is for you.

How to Easily Set Up Appointment Reminders

If ease of use is a key factor for your appointment reminder solution, you’ve come to the right place. With GoReminders, you can have appointment reminders set up in just three steps:

Step 1 – Create your reminder template

GoReminders offers complete flexibility, allowing you to customize the appointment reminders your customers see. Simply go to the settings, look for the “Message Templates” heading, and click the orange “Create New” button to create a new template.

From there, you can give your message template a name, create an SMS and email version of each template, and customize every aspect of the template messaging. You can even customize your reminders for each customer using the included Template Tags. Insert these tags into your templates and let GoReminders fill in the relevant information from your appointment automatically. You can even create custom tags to include information unique to your business.

If you’d like to send several different reminders for the same appointment, you can set that up in the Message Sequences section (just below the Message Templates). Customer response options (including confirmation, rescheduling, or cancelation) are also available in the reminder settings.

Not sure what to write? Use one of our pre-written appointment reminder templates.

Step 2 – Check the reminder schedule

In the reminder settings, you can easily customize the timing of when your reminder messages reach customers.

You can send appointment reminders anywhere from 30 days up to a few hours before the appointment. You can set follow up messages to be sent anytime after an appointment. Once you set up the message sequence, GoReminders will take care of the rest.

Step 3 – Set up your first appointment

The final step of sending your first appointment reminder is to add an appointment to GoReminders. Simply fill in the customer’s name, what type of reminder (email, text, or both) you’d like them to receive, and the phone number and email address where they will receive the message. Then, just fill in the appointment time and length. The customer will automatically receive appointment reminders from the message template or sequence you set up.

That’s it! You’ve now set up your first appointment reminder.

If you’d like to get more advanced, you can offer customers the option to confirm or reschedule their appointment, or set up different reminders to be sent to the customer over time. All of this can be found in the reminder settings.

If you run into any trouble, contact our friendly customer support. We are glad to help you make the best use of all GoReminders has to offer.

Automate Your Appointment Reminders with Self-Serve Booking for Customers

If you’d like to offer your customers an easy way to book their own appointments, GoReminders offers an optional appointment booking feature.

Simply navigate to the Settings > Booking page and choose if you would like customers to book appointments directly or request an appointment for you to approve. You can customize the messaging and add a logo to the booking page, set your hours of availability, and much more.

Whenever customers book appointments using your new booking page, they’ll be automatically enrolled to receive appointment reminders. This way, you can focus on your business and not spend so much time dealing with no-shows!

We love using Go Reminders for our viewing appointments, it has dramatically reduced the number of no show appointments with clients having the ability to cancel their appointment at the touch of a button. It also helps with our organization and tracking of appointments with the ease of use and the functionality across mobile and desktop platforms. We love it.

Fewer clients saying they forgot their appointment! Which means that we don’t have holes in our schedule that we could have used for another client, had we known ahead of time that they would need to cancel or simply not show.

I am a private instructor for baseball and have been doing private lessons as a side business for years now. It is not a full blown business as I still continue my normal full time job. This app has seriously replaced the headache of making sure my clients remember their appointment with me or to reschedule. I handle everything regarding my lessons and the most time consuming part of it was making sure my time slots stayed full and not having “no shows” or having people forget to reschedule or forget the time and day they had the appointment. Definitely recommend this app!
I almost forgot, the nicest part about this was the communication between the developer and myself to make sure everything was working and I was happy using the app.
