How Reminders work

For messages with reminders:

  • If a recipient does not click on the link within the email or the button in Slack, they will receive the message again.

  • The message will appear the same, but will include a "Reminder" heading.

  • The message will send at the same time of day as the original message was sent.

  • If you set multiple Reminders, no Reminders will be sent after the recipient has clicked on the email link or Slack button.

How to add a Reminder to your message

  • Select Create to start your message (or if you are using a message from the Library select Use)

  • Click on Read more or An acknowledgement or confirmation of the content under Add to this. This will pop up a button and a new content section.

  • Click on the button to edit the text as needed (i.e., Learn more, Accept policy, Acknowledge, Agree to terms, Confirm, etc). Then click on the alarm clock icon. Note: no reminder has been set when the alarm clock has a line through it.

  • Click Add for each reminder you want to create. Set the number of days after the message is sent that you would like a reminder to be sent. Click Save.

  • After you click Save, you will return to the previous screen and see that a reminder has been set (as indicated by the checkmark inside the alarm clock).

  • Be sure to complete the content in the "Read More" or "Acknowledge" section before sending your message.
