2. X days prior to appointment:
- you can edit which day in your settings (see below)
- clients can reply "YES" to confirm
- clients can reply "NO" to cancel, but this part of the message will only appear if you allow cancellations
- once confirmed, a check ✔ mark will appear in your calendar
- if your client cancels, they'll see a link to reschedule and you'll receive a notification. All cancellations get tracked on the client's profile.
3. A few hours prior to appointment:
4. If the appointment gets rescheduled
5. If the appointment gets cancelled
