Send a SMS Text Message

The SMS Texts feature allows you to send SMS text messages to your members from within Npressive.

Before You Start

Please note the following before you send a SMS text message:

  • SMS Texts are perfect for short, text-only messages—about 160 characters or less!

  • SMS Texts do not support any type of formatting or document attachments.

  • SMS Texts are sent as a "one-way" communication method; the sender will not be notified of any recipient response.

  • Recipients can reply to this SMS Text number to unsubscribe from future text communications.

How to Use

An instance owner or admin should follow these steps:

  • First, navigate to the Member user, manual Grouping, or Audience segment you wish to send a one-way SMS blast.

  • From the more action icon, select the Send SMS Text option.

  • Type your message in the Subject input, which is what will populate the SMS body; you may opt to personalize the message with Personalize link.

  • If you have an additional copy you wish to display, add it to the message body. This content will only appear to the recipient after they select a link to view the full message with their mobile phone's web browser.

  • Press Send to queue up the message for delivery for SMS text.

  • If you want to schedule the message, select the down arrow to the right of the Send button to reveal the Schedule Send option.
