Customise your reminders

You can have up to 5 different reminders—each set up to send at different times and containing different email messages. This means you can nudge your customers as frequently and as gently as you choose.

You can customise your reminders from the Invoice Reminders window (Sales > Invoice Reminders or Setup menu > Preferences > Emailing tab > Invoice Reminders).

Remember—changes to a reminder apply to all customers who receive reminders.

Customise your reminder frequency

When changing or adding a reminder, choose how many days before or after your invoice due date to send the reminder.

Customise your reminder emails

Tailor your reminder emails with tags.

Tags retrieve information from each invoice, so you can create a general message that will be populated with specific information for each customer. Available tags are listed on the right of the New reminder window.

So in our example, the tags [TRADING_NAME] and [CUSTOMER_NAME] appear in square brackets when setting up the reminder. But these will show your company's name and the customer's name in reminder email.

This means each customer will receive an email with information relevant to them.

All you need to do is write your email subject and message, click where you want a tag to appear, then click a tag to add it. When you're done, don't forget to click Save.
