Sending an SMS

The mobile number will automatically populate from the contact details in the booking, but for it to work you will need to ensure the number is in the correct format with no spaces.
If the number has populated incorrectly, you will need to correct. For future use, correcting the contact details will solve this issue.
When entering the phone number in the "SMS To" field, ensure that you put the relevant country code in front, and then enter the number without any spaces, E.g. 641234567.
4. Click the "Send SMS" button and your guest will receive the SMS message, and you will receive an email confirming that the SMS was sent. (image 1.1)
