CategoriesCategories are a great way to segment your contacts into groups. Some folks like to categorize contacts by the type of contact they are (i.e. Bride, Bridesmaid, Prom, etc). Others like to categorize by behavior (i.e. Bride - Purchased Gown, Bride - No Purchase, Bride - Visited, etc). The possibilities are endless.
BridalLive is loaded with pre-defined categories. You may edit, delete or add your own.
With BridalLive's Smart Flow feature, these categories can be automatically assigned to your contacts when specific behavior occurs like buying a wedding dress! Try it out!
How Heard TypesUnderstanding where your customers are coming from is critical to any business. The How Heard Types screen allows you to setup all your marketing channels. How Heard Types can be assigned to contacts in the Contact's profile. Then, using the How Heard Effectiveness Report, you'll be able to see which marketing channel pays off the most!

Event LocationsEvent Locations can be setup to track when and where your contacts are having their events. For, weddings you usually only need to specify a description. These can be generic (i.e. Church, Beach, etc) or they can be more specific (i.e. ABC Event Facility, Chateau Elan, etc).
For Prom/Homecoming, you will want to use the name of the school and a date. Each year, you will want to change the dates for each school's prom/homecoming.

PreferencesChoose which color you want to show for your appointments on your calendar: Appointment Type Color or Associate Profile Color.
Other preferences: Allow appointments to be booked outside of employee work schedule, Print Contact Notes on Appointment Sheet and Print Appointment Notes on Appointment Sheet.
Public Calendar URL allows you to integrate your calendar with other calendaring services like Gmail and Outlook.com. The public calendar url allows you to have 3rd party calendar services (like Google Calendar or Outlook 360) fetch your BridalLive appointments and display them in their system (and on your various devices!). While we make this feature available, we do not have control of how frequently these services ask for updates to your calendar.
We always return the most up to date information, but if they haven't asked us for updates, then your appointments will be out of date in those systems.
**See those respective systems for instructions on how to add an "External Calendar" to your personal calendar.
Appointment TypesAppointment Types let you organize your calendar. Each appointment type has a pre-defined duration and color, which can always be changed at the time of booking. If you would like website visitors to request or schedule appointments online, be sure to change appointment type's 'Book Online' setting to Yes.
