Would be great if not already available to have an option to bulk messages and send out to all clients for when away on holidays or about in salon deals or specials.

  • This would be a brilliant idea instead of doing individual text messages from my phone!

  • Suggestion... would be great if you could integrate something like mailchimp to automate and manage clients (API?)

  • Also to be able to assist with client retention - automated massages for clients you haven't seen for 60 days for example??

  • This is needed urgently as it is one of the only ways of communicating new offers or pricing specials to our existing clients. Not everyone uses social media and it is too time consuming to send out text messages to over 500 clients individually, not to mention it requires a dedicated mobile phone number. Is there any plan to include such a facility from the software in the near future?

  • This part of every salon system, to able to send bulk message to all clients for what ever reason
    My question why still not available on this system!!

  • Totally agree...this is a MUST HAVE. The main reason I'm looking to move away from Shedul. I need my system to be automated for specials, reminders to those we haven't seen a while, birthday specials etc. automate automate automate this is where we need to go. Even if we need to pay for sms, I would be totally happy to pay for this service!

  • hi guys this is pretty urgent.. if u cant make it bulk sms sending, at least auto export to mailchimp? Thanks

  • Agree - integration with MailChimp would be very handy and make it far more enticing :)

  • Shedul Team, any sign of this happening soon. You mentioned in June 2018 that you were introducing the facility. It's April 2019 now and the only update has been that you launched Fresha Plus which does not address this request for TXT/SMS facility. Fresha Plus only relates to online payments which many salon's do not use or wish to use.  Please update this thread asap as we are a long time waiting for this service.

  • Email marketing to clients is a must. Integration and syncing with Mailchimp would be fiiirreeee!!!

    Comment actions Permalink
  • Yes please. Having to manually add clients to mailchimp is really time consuming, so never get round to it.

  • Yes please! I would like to get rid of my other marketing subscription and use a single platform. I hate to waster time moving client information around between multiple systems.

  • I joined Shedul as I was told this was already a feature to find it is not. This feature has been under the status "coming soon" since I joined and yet nothing has happened. I cancelled my other marketing subscription under false promises. I have a number of updates I need to inform my clients about and I have been patient but my patience is wearing thin. There are comments on this thread from 2018, not acceptable.
