As the holiday season is now in full swing, we’re excited to share what Boulevard has worked hard on in November! We released our new Shopify app for all your e-commerce needs, customizable reminder email and SMS timing, and even more. Read on to learn about everything new in Boulevard last month.

Customize when email and SMS reminders are sent
Automated reminders are the best way to get clients in the door and prevent no-shows. Now, you can adjust how far in advance your business sends email and SMS appointment reminders.
Reminders will continue to send at 8:00 AM PST/11:00 AM EST for email and 2:00 PM PST/5:00 PM EST for SMS, but this new setting allows you to select which day to send reminders in the 5 days leading up to a scheduled appointment. Navigate to the Details section of your Manage Location settings to customize this timing.
Important note: Adjusting the timeframe will have an impact on your existing reminder schedules. Therefore, we recommend you coordinate any changes on a day you are closed or have limited appointments. For example, say my business is closed on Sundays. If I wanted to change my appointment reminder to send 3 days ahead when it currently sends 2 days ahead, I should make the adjustment on a Friday morning. This way I am certain my clients will receive reminders for their Monday appointments.
Manage recent cancellations
It’s now easier than ever to find and manage recent cancellations. Navigate to your recent cancellations list from the top right-hand button of the Front Desk or Calendar View. Now, you can search and filter cancellations by categories like date of cancellation, date of appointment, staff name, the reason for cancellation, and more.
