Upgraded Reminders

Setting Up Reminders at the Account Level

In this release, a new tab was created under Setup → Settings → Reminders. This tab contains all of the you account-level settings for the new and upgraded reminders.

In this tab, super and regional admins can:

  1. Choose the relevant service provider for sending send phone calls and text messages.

  2. Choose the primary caller’s phone number from the relevant phone numbers.

    1. This number needs to be verified in advance. Therefore new phone numbers are to be sent to R&D (Meir/Lital) to be added to the list.

  3. Choose when to send each reminder. The default is 3 minutes before the scheduled group/personal meeting.

Group and Personal Meetings

Admins can enable or disable reminders per meeting type at the group and personal level. Changing the reminder at the group level affects all of your members.

A list of all reminders is shown under the relevant meeting type.


Each reminder is language-specific and will be sent to a member based on their display language.

The default reminder is the reminder that will be sent to subscribers with a display language different from the uploaded ones.

Adding a New Reminder

Clicking the Add Reminder button on the upper-right corner of each meeting-type component opens a pop-up with all the required fields to set up a new meeting, including:

  1. Selecting a language for that reminder.

    1. Only one reminder can be selected for each language; users can’t select multiple reminders for the same language.

  2. Selecting an audio file.

    1. Only MP3/MPEG audio files are supported for reminders.

  3. The relevant SMS message text (for members with this option enabled).

    1. Please note that SMS messages are currently disabled, and will be added to the reminders after release 3.

Once the fields are filled, click the Add Reminder button. This will add the new reminder to the your reminder list.

After all the desired settings and reminders have been adjusted, click Save to save the new settings.
