Using Phone Alerts
Sometimes you may want the capability to not only send out mass text messages but also mass voice messages. Your Mobile Text Alerts account can be set up to send out pre-recorded voice messages. Using this useful “phone alerts” feature is easy! Simply follow these steps.
You can contact us via the contact form, email (firstname.lastname@example.org), phone (402-805-1228), or the chat box on the Mobile Text Alerts website. Request to be enabled for phone alerts, and a representative will get your account set up to use the feature.
- Record a message.
After we have enabled your account for phone alerts, you will receive an email with your PIN number. You can then dial 201-351-4428. The system will ask for your PIN number and then you can follow the instructions that the system gives you to record your message. (Note: if you ever lose or forget your PIN number, contact us and we can retrieve it for you.)
- Send your message.
When you are done recording, log in to your account and go to the “Send a Phone Message” page. (You can find the link on the navigation bar to the left of your screen when you are logged in to your account.)
From this page you will first select whether you want your voice message to be sent out immediately, or if you want to schedule it to be automatically sent out at a later date/time.
Then you select which recipients you want to receive your message. You can do one of the following:
- You can check the “Send Message to All Subscribers” box. This will send your voice message to every number that is on your account.
- You can type in the name of one or more of your groups. This will only send your message to the members who are a part of that group (more on groups here).
- You can select recipients individually by checking the “Send Message” box of each number that you want to receive your message.
Lastly, scroll to the bottom of the page to select the message that you want to send. Click on the row of the message to highlight it. Then click “Send Phone Message” and your message will be sent!To make sure that you have the right message before you send it, you can hear the pre-recorded message by clicking the “Preview Message” arrow. You can also search for messages using the search bar.
