Converting Orders to Appointments

Introduction

Once you receive orders on Storat, you will be able to convert them to appointments. Converting orders to appointments gives you many benefits.  One of them is automatic reminders by email and SMS to your customers. Storat will send your customer a reminder about the appointment at the time the appointment is set, 24 hours before, in the morning of the appointment, and 1 hour before it. This will help you improve the conversion rate of bookings to actual paying customers. Another benefit is that you can organize your appointments among different calendars. You can create a calendar for each employee or a resource in your organization.
