Make birthday messages personalised and automated

The importance of recognizing and appreciating employees on their special days cannot be understated. For HR managers looking for a streamlined and automated solution, we have a treat! Our tutorial on creating a birthday journey with 50skills is here to guide you step by step. Here's how it works:

1. Start with the Basics

Initiate by setting up your journey on the 50skills platform. The primary action you'd want to take for a birthday greeting is sending a text message. Not just any text, but one that conveys warmth and appreciation.

2. Personalizing the Journey

Every employee is unique. So why should their birthday greetings be generic? With 50skills, you can use field mapping to automatically include the traveller's (in this case, the employee's) name in the message, ensuring each greeting is personal and heartfelt.

3. Timing is Everything

Instead of sending the message right away, set it to dispatch at a specific time – the employee's birthday! To ensure this, use the 'Wait Until Date' action and set it to the traveller's date of birth. You can also choose the exact hour of delivery, be it 9:00 in the morning, noon, or 13:00, whichever suits best.

4. Name and Describe Your Journey

To stay organised and for future reference, label your journey – "Birthday Greeting to Employees" seems apt. Also, provide a brief description outlining its purpose.

5. Adding Travellers to the Journey

You can either manually input the details of new travellers, or integrate with an API for seamless data transfer. For bulk imports, use the CSV document upload feature, ensuring all data columns are accurately matched.

6. Embarking the Journey

Once travellers are added, begin their journey. You have the flexibility to start the journey for all simultaneously or for individuals separately. The program will guide each traveller through the actions, culminating in sending them a warm birthday message on their special day.

7. Test and Launch

Before fully committing, you might want to preview the journey on a test user or yourself to ensure everything runs smoothly. After successful testing, add all your employees and let the system handle the rest!
