Automatic message suggesting a repeat booking. The notification will be sent if, during the set period, your client hasn't made a booking for this service. The system will check for each service starting from the last appointment. If the period for notification for two services matches the system will form and send just one notification where the both services will be indicated.
It is used to increase the number of bookings from clients and to remind them about regular services in a timely manner.
