Configuring Email Notification for Guest Data Form

The Guest Data Form email template triggers an automated email notification to the guests with a link to custom data form/intake form. Sending a sign up or custom data form to guest’s allows you to obtain personal information before they come in for their appointment.  If you've booked an appointment for a new guest over the phone or via the web store, and you require custom guest data to be filled in, you can send the link to the guest's email address. Once the guest receives the email with the link, they can click the link to access the form from the web store. You can customize the automated email to include details such as center contact details, guest’s first name, guest data link, etc.

There are several possible reasons why an email is not delivered or is not seen by  a guest. Below mentioned are some common scenarios and troubleshooting tips.  

  • Guest cannot view an email.
    Email could have been delivered to the guest's Spam folder instead of the Inbox. Guide the guest to check the Spam folder.

  • Send Guest Data Link button does not show.
    The Send Guest Data Link button will only show if you have Guest Data Form template activated at the organization level (step 6 in Configure and Customize Guest Data Form Email Template).

  • Notification was not delivered.
    Navigate to the guest profile and click the Notifications tab to review the status of notifications sent. A notification could have a SentPending or Failed status.  
    • If the status is Sent, the message has been delivered successfully. 
    • If the status is Pending, then Zenoti is awaiting confirmation that the email was delivered. Check the status after a few minutes.
    • If the status is Failed, it could mean that one of the following prerequisites have not been met:
      • Navigate to Admin > Organization >Settings and ensure Activate email field is selected.
      • Navigate to Admin > Organization >Email/Texts and ensure the Guest Data Form template is turned On in the EMAIL/TEXTS tab.
      • Verify that there are enough email credits in the center to send notifications. You can view your available credits in the right panel at the organization/center level. Contact Support to add credits.
      • Verify if the guest profile has a valid email address.
      • Verify in the guest profile if the guest has opted to receive notifications. The Receive Transactional Emails check box must be selected.
