Many people ask us, "I'm looking for a way to get notifications about 15 minutes prior to my client's appointment. Is this possible?"
Yes! However the BookedIN app itself doesn't have a setting for this, but the good news is, this is easy to set up using a synced calendar!
The way it works, you'll sync BookedIN to your personal calendar (Google, iCloud, Outlook, etc). Then you set your personal calendar to show pop up reminders. Ex 5-10 minutes prior to the appointment. Here are instructions:
- First, Sync BookedIN to your personal calendar (ex. Google, iCloud, Outlook, Office365, Exchange). Setup instructions here
- Then on your personal calendar, set up a pop up alert. Instructions below for the popular calendar types:
Settings app > Calendars > Default Alert Times > Events > then check your preferred alert time, ex "15 minutes before"
Settings > Applications > Calendar > Scroll to find "Event Notifications". Now make sure Select Alert Type is set to either "pop up" or "Status bar". Then choose your sound, vibration & snooze preferences.
Click gear icon (top-right) > Settings > Click "Calendars" tab (beside General) > click "Edit Notifications" link beside your calendar name (the one you have synced with BookedIN) > Then add or remove notifications beside the "By default notifiy me via" section. Ex. 10 minutes before.
Go to preferences > Calendar > Calendar Options > Check "Default reminder" and set to your desired time, ex "10 minutes before"
