Generate Message Explained

Scheduling with Generate Message

Motion's Generate Message feature streamlines the creation of a one-time link with a pre-defined message that reflects your availability for dates. Using a message template and customizable variables saves you time and simplifies communication with recipients.

Generate Message vs. Drag Times:

Generate Message enables you to select specific dates or a date range and auto-fill a template with your availability, ideal for one-time meetings.

Conversely, Drag Times, also a single-use link, lets you manually pick open slots on your calendar, perfect for one-on-one meetings.

Both features enhance meeting scheduling with personalized booking pages. With Generate Message, you can skip checking your Motion calendar and manually choosing open time slots.

Steps to Use Generate Message:

  1. Go to the โ€œBookingโ€ tab.

  2. Locate the booking link you want to use.

  3. Click the โ€œGenerate messageโ€ button for that booking link.

  4. Set availability parameters and other details.

  5. Copy the message.

  6. Send the message to your guest.

  7. They will be able to book a meeting from your message.


Real-Life Scenario:

As a busy professional who frequently schedules meetings with clients and colleagues, you often find yourself spending a significant amount of time composing and sending meeting invitations, including all the necessary details like date, time, and location.

Let's say you need to schedule a meeting with a potential client. Instead of manually typing out your availability, you can simply head to โ€œBookingโ€ open the โ€œGenerate message window,โ€ and create a pre-filled message. Paste the message into your email and send it to the client. The client then receives a neatly formatted message that comes with a personalized booking page.

Can I change the default template?

  • Yes, you can do so in the Settings tab > Booking.
