How many characters should your reminders have?
You can decide on your message reminders length, being aware that it will consume one or more text messages out of your data plan. A normal text message contains 160 characters. More specifically, that is 160 text characters (letters, numbers, punctuation signs and spaces), but with no emojis included! The total character size of the messages containing emojis or Unicode characters is only 70 characters. So please take this into account when setting your reminder message templates.
The colored fields of the Appointfix reminder templates in the app are dynamic and they will be filled with the needed info (date, time, name, company, phone, etc.), which also consumes characters. That is why many clients tend to use the very basic format: “Just a reminder from <Your Name or Company Name> about your appointment on <Date> at <Start Time>. For rescheduling call <Phone Number>.” For more details on reminders length and other FAQs, check out this article on Appointfix practical questions and answers.
