Clients can also opt themselves in for text reminders a few different ways:
- From their client scheduling account under the My Preferences tab.

These texts default to being sent out 24 hours before, but you can set this to 4, 8, 24, 48, or 72 hours. Just use the main menu to open Settings, then head to Policies and select General Policies.
