Go to Marketing > Reviews > Settings
Use the checkboxes at the top of the screen to enable or disable the SMS and/or Email Review message.
You can use the dropdown menu to choose when the Review request will be sent to clients.
- First Appointment Only: Clients will only ever be asked for a review once after they pay for their appointment, and will not be asked again. Enabling this setting will ask clients even if they have had appointments in the past, but only if they have never received a request to leave a review before.
- Max Once Per Month: Clients will only be asked to review the salon once per month provided they have had an appointment in that month.
- Every Appointment: Clients will be asked to leave a review after every appointment.
