When you want to send a message to all guests for a specific event, you can use group messaging.
When an event date gets booked by its first guest, the system automatically creates a group specific to the event date.
If a host sets events to require approvals for booking, the group will be created when the host approves the first booking.
With group messaging, you can send anything you want to share with your guests such as changing of a meeting time/place, reminders, or greetings to all guests.
How to Send a Group Message
- Open your browser and log in to helloaini.com
- Click on the icon for your account information (located in the upper right corner)
- If you are accessing from your PC, select "Dashboard". If you are accessing from an app, you can skip this step.
- Select "For Guests/Hosts"
- Select a Group, then type a message
- Click the "Send" button
You can check which guests have already read the message and which guests haven't by clicking the "Read (Number)" mark next to the date/time of when the message was sent. It will display the nicknames of the guests who have read the message.
