Connect Your Address Book

Connecting your address book to Apptoto is useful for multiple reasons. By connecting your address book to Apptoto, the platform will sync all of your existing contacts, including their first names, last names, emails, and phone numbers (if you have collected all of those). If you have automatic contact matching available, any missing contact information for your appointment participants can be added automatically by Apptoto.

Likewise, if you want to run an Address Book Campaign to send SMS text messages and emails to specific groups of your prospects, clients, or patients, you can utilize your existing address books (or subsets of people within the address book) to send campaign messages to.
