Evite lets its users create invitations and reminders.
For a short answer, go on to “Add Guest” on your invitation, click “Event Reminders”, and then customize the settings on when you want to send your reminder.
To help you, we’re going to teach you the whole process in today’s article.
What are Reminders in Evite?
Reminders will serve as your tool in keeping your guests updated about your planned event. Sending these a few days before the actual party will prevent your guests from forgetting your schedule.
The best thing about Evite’s reminders is its automated setting. You don’t have to manually type it in every time you want to send your guests a reminder.
Instead, you just need to customize your invitation settings, and you’re all set. Don’t worry, though. We will walk you through how to do this in the later sections.
All in all, expect that this tool will make party planning and management more convenient. With this, you won’t have to risk having no-show guests because of forgotten events.
Does Evite Send Reminders to RSVP?
Evite currently doesn’t have a specific option to send reminders to RSVP. There is, however, an alternate way to keep track of RSVPs from guests.
If you’re not familiar with what RSVP is, it basically asks your guests to respond to your invitation. As a host, this feature will be helpful in knowing the exact number of guests that will come to your party.
To do this, here are the steps that you need to take:
- Log in to your Evite account.
- Head on to your dashboard for current invitations.
- Click “More”.
- Select “Add Guests”.
- Navigate to the “Guest Options” settings.
- Enter the current number of “Yes” RSVPs that you have received on “Limit Total Guest Size”.
This task will not allow other guests to send a “Yes” for their RSVP. Instead, they will have to notify you about the changes. Consequently, this will send both you and your guests about the RSVP.
Does Evite Automatically Send Reminder Emails?
Evite automatically sends reminder emails 2 days before the event’s date.
By default, Evite sets its reminder settings to 2 days prior to the event. This is still customizable, but if you want to rely on automatic settings, then this is the timeframe that you should know.
It’s important to note that if you make your invitations 4 days before the event, there will be no automatic reminders. As this can be inconvenient, it’s best to create invitations early on.
How to Send a Reminder on Evite
Sending a reminder on Evite is an easy process.
If you want to send a reminder before or during creating your invitation, then here are the steps that you should follow:
- Complete the steps of creating an invitation until you reach the “Add Guests” step.
- Click “Event Reminders”.
- Set the number of days as to when you want your reminder to be sent.
- Optionally, you can also add two more reminder emails in the same setting.
On the flip side, you can still set reminder emails even after sending out your invitations. Here is how you can do this:
- Go to your invitations dashboard.
- Click “More” beside your invitation’s title.
- Select “Add Guests”.
- Navigate to “Event Reminders”.
- Customize preferred reminder settings.
- Click either “Finish & Send” or “Update”.
Note that the “Update” option is only available if you’re using Evite Premium. The difference between the two is the former resends the invitation with the updated setting, while the latter simply updates the invitation without resending it.
How to Stop Evite Reminders
You can’t stop Evite reminders. The platform requires at least one reminder email to be sent before the event.
Unfortunately, there are no workarounds to stop Evite reminders from being sent to your guests. The best that you can do is to limit your reminder email to just one.
Alternatively, you can just create your invitation 4 days before your event date so it won’t have the reminders option. You can’t do this for already sent invitations, though.
Does Evite Send Read Receipts?
Evite doesn’t exactly send read receipts, but they display a “Viewed” label along with a timestamp next to a guest’s name to show the host if their invitations are read or not.
If you’re asking if Evite sends a notification whenever a guest reads your invitation, then the answer is they don’t.
However, if you’re only looking into how you can know if a guest viewed your invitation, then you can simply check the label next to the guest’s name. If they have already received and read it, you will see “Viewed xx minutes ago” or “Viewed xx days ago”.
How Long Does It Take for Evite to Send Invitations?
Evite sends out invitations immediately regardless whether you’re using the Free or Premium Plan.
One of the best things about using Evite is you won’t have to worry about when your guests will receive your invitation. Right after creating it, and clicking “Send”, you can expect your guests to receive it immediately. This is no matter the time zone they’re in.
There are some cases, however, when the invitation gets delayed. When this happens, Evite’s system is probably getting overloaded with sent invitations. They, however, will immediately send a notification if this happens so you can keep updated.
How to Resend an Evite Invitation
To resend an invitation, you need to do it in the form of sending a message. Below is an overview of the necessary steps:
- Head on to your invitations board.
- Click “More”.
- Select “Manage Invitation”.
- Choose “Message Guests”.
- Choose the guests that you want to resend the invitation to.
- Type in your message.
The message will automatically come with your invitation’s link.
How Do You Send a Message to All Guests in Evite?
Sending a message to all of your guests on Evite is the same process as resending an invitation. Again, here are the steps:
- Choose the specific invitation for the event you’re referring to.
- Click “More”.
- Navigate to “Manage Invitation”.
- Select “Message Guests”.
- Check all of the event’s guests.
- Type the message that you want to send.
Just like invitations, Evite will also send your messages immediately.
Evite is a handy tool for all of your social planning needs. Its features will fit any event.
From our discussion, we can see that it isn’t hard to use. Sending reminders only takes a few clicks. This is the same for creating invitations and hosting a virtual party.
