How To Use the Customer Review Feature


The Apptekz Review Feature allows sending push notifications or emails when a specific event/trigger then customers can add good or bad reviews like Google reviews, Facebook reviews, TripAdvisor reviews, and other review site links.

Check the box for each one that should be activated within the mobile app.

Bad Review Email

Configure BAD REVIEW EMAIL to respond to customers that may give a bad review.

This provides a powerful reputation management strategy to maintain the reputation of the business and hopefully avoid a negative review.

Background And Color Settings

Mobile App View

Customers access the Review feature through the Mobile App. It enables businesses to prompt customers to add a review after they have an experience with the business which is triggered by the specific events that pertain to the business or the app. Customers may provide a good review, bad review, or skip the review process, if desired. In cases where the user skips the review process the feature may show them the option to provide a review again in the future.
* Note: Review Landing Page becomes visible only after App is Published and Trigger has been activated
