Quick Replies allow you to save common text messages you send your guests on the Notify, Waitlist and Booked lists.
How to Add and Edit Quick Replies
Quick Replies are sent manually and are device-specific, meaning these are sent by your team and unique to each iPad or iPhone. To add Quick Replies on the iPad, tap your restaurant’s name in the top left corner of the screen then select Settings > Quick Replies.
Fill in each blank field with your Quick Reply for their corresponding list. The Default Waitlist text is for your waitlist guests, the Default Reservation text is for your booked guests, the Default Notify text is for guests signed up for Notify. Please keep in mind there is a recommended 160-character limit on each SMS, including spaces! Once the message is saved, you'll see a green checkmark in the bottom right corner of the text box.
Examples of Quick Replies
