Who can use this?

Platform: Mobile            Plan: Pro | Plus            Staff Permission: Enquiries & Settings

 

One way you can save your enquiry form to easily send to potential customers, is to save it as a new text replacement. 

If you haven’t used these before, setting up text replacements on your phone is a useful way to save time typing out common phrases or even links. 

 

What can I add to a Text Replacement? 

You could save the web link by itself e.g. https://tradehq.com/perkinsplumbing/enquire 

Or to save yourself time, a full message such as: Hi there, thanks for your call - please fill out this form https://tradehq.com/perkinsplumbing/enquire and I’ll get back to you with a quote as soon as I can’ 

You can find your unique enquiries link in Tradify under Settings > Enquiries 

 

On iPhone

  1. Head to your iPhone Settings
  2. Scroll down until you find the General option.
  3. Within General settings, scroll down to find the Keyboard option.

  5. To add a new text replacement, tap on the + icon in the top right corner of the Text Replacement screen.
  6. In the fields provided, enter the phrase you want to use and the shortcut that will trigger it.
    The "Phrase" is the full text you want to automatically insert, and the "Shortcut" is the abbreviation or code you will type to insert the full phrase.
    - Phrase: Enter your enquiry link or the full text you wish to automatically insert. For example, "Hi there, thanks for your call - please fill out this form https://tradehq.com/perkinsplumbing/enquire and I’ll get back to you with a quote as soon as I can
    - Shortcut: Enter the abbreviation or code you'll type to trigger the full phrase. For example, "enq"

To test it out: 

  1. Open an app where you can type text, such as Messages or Whatsapp.
  2. Type your shortcut and then hit the space bar; the shortcut should automatically expand to the full phrase.
  3. That's it! You've successfully set up a text replacement on your phone. You can add as many shortcuts as you like following the same steps. It's a great way to save time on typing common phrases or information.

 

On Android. 

  1. Open the Settings app on your Android device.
  2. Scroll down until you find the System option. Tap on it to open the System settings.
    On some devices, you might directly find Language & input under Settings, so you can skip to step 4 if that's the case.
  3. In the System settings, look for an option that says Language & input or something similar like "Languages & keyboard," "Language & keyboard," or "Input." Tap on it.
  4. Within the Language & input settings, find and select Virtual Keyboard or Keyboard & input methods. This will show a list of installed keyboards on your device.
  5. Tap on the keyboard for which you want to add text replacements. Most Android devices use "Gboard" (Google's keyboard) as the default, but if you're using a different keyboard, select that one.
  6. Once you've selected your keyboard, look for an option that says Text correction and tap on it.
  7. Inside the Text correction menu, look for Dictionary, Personal dictionary, or a similar option and select it.
