To help increase turnout, ElectionBuddy allows you to send reminders to all your voters who have not voted, you can also send an individual reminder to a single voter. You schedule the reminders, allowing you to set reminders that will automatically be sent to you when the scheduled time comes.
The number of reminders that are included with your vote is determined by the cost of your vote. Reminders can only be used when using an electronic notice method, such as Email or SMS notices.
SMS and Email reminders are managed separately and each count towards your total of sent reminders. For example, if you have reserved 3, sending one SMS reminder and one Email reminder would use 2 of your 3 reminders.
Reminder templates are independent of one another (i.e. you may choose to either duplicate or create a different template for each reminder you want to schedule and send). The following process will need to be completed for each reminder you want to schedule and send. To send a vote-wide reminder:
Click on your votes title to go to your votes results page
Click on the "Actions" menu, located in the top right
Click on the "Reminders".
Not seeing the option to send a reminder? Your vote may not qualify for reminders based on the price you paid for your vote. Please see our pricing page for more details.
Click "Schedule Email Reminder" to schedule an email reminder, or click "Schedule SMS Reminder" to send an SMS reminder:
Edit the template.
Enter a send date for the reminder to be sent.
Click "Schedule" to save the send date and your changes.
Once the reminder has been scheduled, you can preview it to see what your formatting of the template will result in. To preview, click the "Preview" button associated with the reminder after you've scheduled it:
The reminder will go out at the scheduled time. To remove, edit and duplicate the reminder, please click the associated buttons.
Duplicating reminders saves time and effort in creating a new reminder each time. All the details are auto-filled and only the send date and time needs to be updated.
