If you often send the same text message to guests, you can now set up SMS Templates to speed up the process. SMS Templates can automatically pull any required information from your property and booking details, e.g. Guest Name, Door Code, Arrival, Departure, Total Cost etc.
To set up a SMS Template you will need to go into any booking and click on “SMS Log or “New SMS”. A pop up will appear where you can click on Manage Templates to create/customise a template.
To set up and use SMS Templates, open any booking in iBex. Go to the Lead Guest tab and click on New SMS.
A pop up window will open. To save a new SMS Template, click Manage Templates and enter the name and message of the template.
