Activity start

Activity Messenger allows you to send an email or a text message before an activity starts. This will send a message only for the first occurrence or class of your activity. This works both with Amilia and Upload Excel/CSV lists. It will take the date of the "activity start" column or the first occurrence date you have imported.

To get started create a new automated task. Click on the Communications menu and Create a new automated task. Give your automated task a name and choose "Activity start".

Once your automated task is created you can turn on the switch and program the Automation Bot. Choose the time the message should go out at, select the list you want, and configure the message to send out.

Activity start tasks can be configured to use any type of list, even Master lists that combine other lists. Activity Messenger will pick up recipients registered to activities and ignore the others.

At the bottom you can pick a date to see who will receive a message on that day.

# Activity start message template

By default Activity Messenger creates a template for you. It contains placeholders for person's first name, the activity name and the start date and time. You can modify that template or use another.

# Attaching a waiver

You can attach a form or waiver (i.e. a liability waiver) to the email. Click on Configure the message. At the bottom left, click on Attachment and Attach a form/waiver. Select the form you have previously created. Activity Messenger will add a button with a link to the form. Read the docs on forms and waivers to learn more.

# Consulting sent messages

Activity Messenger logs automation messages sent. Click on the Messages tab under the automated task. There will be listed all emails and text messages sent for the task.
