FAQ: Default Access Email & SMS/Text
What is the default guest email/text from Lynx:
Lynx offers a "default email and text" to communicate access information to the guests. Customers cannot customize the content displayed in this email/ text. However, customers can add their brand logo and colors to this email if they have purchased the white-label add-on.
Use default email/text from Lynx while you complete the messaging setup. Unless activated, all emails/texts are always disabled. You can request firstname.lastname@example.org to activate the default email/ text.
Lynx will never send any communication to your guests unless you activate the setup. You can deactivate these emails/ texts once your custom messaging is set up. Default Access Email & SMS/ Text are free.
|Access Information' email/ text
||This email/ text is sent 7 days before the date and time of check-in. The send time is not customizable.
||It contains the access code information as well as the instructions for how to operate the lock. If you have enabled the guest check-out notification workflow, this email will automatically include the check-out code as well. SMS does not include check-out code information.
How does the Email to guest look like:
