Important

• Adding emojis to notification templates is not recommended as they may be displayed incorrectly for the recipient, impacting the message's clarity and readability.

• By default, the Upcoming visit notification type is configured to send an SMS message 1 hour before the appointment and an Email 12 hours before the appointment. If the booking was created prior to modifying the notification settings, the default settings will apply. Any changes you make to the settings will only affect future bookings. However, if needed, you can manually adjust the settings for bookings created prior to the changes by accessing the Notifications tab within the specific booking. For more detailed instructions, refer to the documentation provided here.
