We are thrilled to announce that you can now text your requests to Fancy Hands!
Yes, you read that right.
Basic, Pro and Premier subscribers can text requests on-the-go and will be instantly connected to an assistant for real-time responses.
How does it work?
Text your request to (646) 755-9298 and you’ll be connected to an assistant. Then you can text as you normally would with a friend. It’s that easy! Your assistant will be able to see your entire text request thread, as you would be able to with any text conversation.
But wait...there’s more. Learn more about how texting is priced here.
Here’s an example of what a text request looks like:
A few things to know before getting started:
You’ll want to make sure you’re texting from the number that’s connected to your Fancy Hands account. If you’re not sure which number is connected, you can view or change this here.
We’d suggest saving (646) 755-9298 as ‘Fancy Hands’ or ‘Fancy Hands Text’ in your phone for easy access. It’s the same number you’d use to call in your requests.
While we can access your calendar to schedule appointments, we can’t yet make payments on your behalf through text. Don’t worry -- we’re working on it!
A good rule-of-thumb for sending in text requests: Anything that wouldn’t work in a text to a friend probably won’t work well in a text request to Fancy Hands. We’d suggest sticking to sending larger tasks through email, the mobile apps, or your web dashboard.
Here are some examples:
