Send inquiry notifications to multiple team members

If you have a team, this feature is for YOU. Now you can select to notify multiple team members of new inquiries that come through your contact form.

You can set team members as: 

  • Project owner — only one team member can be assigned as the project owner. This position should be reserved for the person who manages inquiries and is the key contact for projects.
  • Workspace participants — this position is for a team member who should be aware of project progression and may need to communicate from time to time.
  • Inquiry recipients — this user does not need to be aware of project progression or communicate about the project, but would like to be aware of inquiries coming in.

You must have the HoneyBook contact form installed on your website in order to select team members to get notified. If you haven’t done so yet, head over to the contact form to install it on your website and set up your team notifications.

Updates to the calendar

The HoneyBook calendar has gotten some improvements to help you get the information you need more easily. Check out the updates below:

  • Schedule a meeting or jump to your calendar directly from within a project
  • See more of what you need with the new edge-to-edge view
  • Switch between Month, Week or Day views so you can easily see what’s coming up

PS: Get excited about more updates coming soon!

RTS Gift Guide

It’s that time of year! Our 5th annual Rising Tide Gift Guide is back.

Every year, Rising Tide curates a list of shops to feature the artists and makers in our community just in time for the holidays. Through this gift guide, we are also able to give back. This year, with your help, we raised nearly $4,000 for the Rising Tide community to support our local chapters.

Pro tip of the month: Using your unique client portal link

Once you create a project through which to communicate and share files with your client, you can give them access to their client portal, where they can review any emails or files that you’ve sent—it’s the perfect way for everyone to stay organized and up to date!

Customize your client portal by claiming your domain name of choice and personalizing the login screen your client will see, helping keep your brand front and center.

Make it easy for your clients to access the info they need. Head over to your company settings to customize your portal and start sharing!

Katie DeLoach

I started my career at HoneyBook in 2015 because I was really excited about this small company that had really big ideas. They saw where the creative economy was heading and I wanted to be a part of it. I started as an Account Executive where I was able to work directly with our members on a daily basis, and was able to move into Product Marketing. When I’m not at work, you’ll find me at a yoga studio or coffee shop around San Francisco.
