Recipient Birthday & Anniversary Reminders

In the past, there were templates that could be used with the custom fields.  For example, there was a birthday reminder where I could send an email to my customer reminding them that they sent birthday flowers to "custom field 1" (recipeint's name) on "custom field 2" (last year's delivery date).  It doesn't seem like there is a way to use customer's custom fields anymore.  We stopped the emails a few years ago because people preferred getting a direct mail piece instead, but now customers are requesting email reminders again.

Re: Recipient Birthday & Anniversary Reminders

Hello @KennethD13. We do still have birthday emails that you can use to send out to your contacts as a reminder to buy birthday flowers as long as you have our Email Plus plan! When you go to create a new email, you will choose Email Automation and select the Birthday email. From here, you can customize it and also include those custom fields in the email. Here is a video that shows you how to create the email and schedule it..

Re: Recipient Birthday & Anniversary Reminders

Is there a way to send me (the account owner) a reminder on an anniversary date instead of the client? I want to use this for the anniversary of a clients mortgage closing to remind myself to review the clients loan.

Re: Recipient Birthday & Anniversary Reminders

Hello @Coltrain. At this time, being able to send reminders to yourself regarding the birthday or anniversary field is not available in your account. However, this is great feedback and I will be sure to track it in your account and send it over to the appropriate team.

Re: Recipient Birthday & Anniversary Reminders

This is something that we would love to have and would even pay extra for.  It would be a great reminder for us to reach out to our clients on certain anniversary dates.

I can totally understand that, @Coltrain! We've submitted the feedback to our developers for review!
