This can be applied to all of our CAT Recipes or any custom search you want to perform.

If you click on "SMS Recall", the "SMS Recall" window will be displayed with the name of your clinic. Enter a message that relates to the purpose of the notification. There are a number of options under the inclusion criteria:

  • Patients who have opted out of receiving SMS from your clinic are removed by default
  • Linking your online booking system to the SMS recall
  • Include the opt-out message in the SMS for patient to "STOP" receiving SMS notifications sent through CAT4

Clicking on "Send" will send the message to all patients with a valid mobile phone number in their record. A confirmation message will prompt you with the number of messages to be sent and the required credits. Click yes to send the SMS recall.



After sending a SMS or Voice Message you will see a message like this one (for SMS)
