In the template you can populate the following information for each reminder:

  • Name of the recipient.
  • Title of the Occasion you'll be celebrating, like "Happy Birthday".
  • Date of the occasion.
  • How far in advance of the occasion you'd like to be reminded. The options are:
    • 1 day before
    • 1 week before
    • 2 weeks before
    • 1 month before
  • Whether this is a recurring occasion - If yes, we'll send you a reminder every year - perfect for birthdays!

Step 3: Drag & drop your completed CSV file into the box

Once you've completed your CSV file, just drag it into the upload box. The system will quickly validate it and if it's all good, you can progress to the next step. If there are any errors in the file we'll let you know so you can fix them and try again.

Final step: Verify your Reminder list and create

In the final step you can quickly validate the details of the Reminders you'll be creating. When you're happy just click the "Create Now" button and you'll see your new Reminders on your dashboard list.

Verify your list before creating your Reminders

Pro tip: It's a good idea to have a Thankbox pack purchased when using Thankbox to send many cards at once since then you won't have to pay individually for each one.
