Communication is a fully integrated piece of Time To Pet and something you will likely use frequently. This article is an overview of the different methods of communication possible with Time To Pet. For more in depth instructions on a particular method, follow the links in each section.
Every Client and every Staff Member has a dedicated conversation feed on which a full history of messages received and sent can be seen. Messages sent via the conversation feed can be delivered via Text Message, Email, or both. They can also be viewed in the Client Portal or Staff Dashboard by the respective recipient.
Private messages are only visible by Administrators and the Client. Staff will never see or be notified of a Client's private messages.
You can also send group emails to both Staff and Clients. These are great for company wide announcements that need to be seen by a large number of people. For example, you might want to send an email blast to all clients announcing a Price Increase.
