Churches make up a huge portion of our customers.  Many of you are loyal customers that use our text alert services for your churches, and we are so thankful for you all!

Recognizing the ever-growing need for a text alert system among churches across the nation, we are excited to announce a new development in Mobile Text Alerts’ future: an additional, church-specific text alert system!

We are still in the brainstorming process of this new development, and we need the help of our customers!  For those of you who use text alerts for your church:

  • What are some features we could include that would be useful to you?
  • What improvements would you like to see to help make communication with your church better and easier?
  • What aspects of our current services would you like to see changed to better suit the needs of your church?
  • What do you like about our current system that you would want to remain the same in a church-specific system?

Feel free to give any feedback in the comments below, or send us an email at contact@mobile-text-alerts.com.  You can also visit our Contact page.  We look forward to hearing from you!

      Hi Ira,

      Thank you for your suggestion! I believe we have had questions about this kind of feature before, so I will pass this on to a developer and see what we can do.

    I’d like to add groups and specific people to receive one-time messages.

    Longer messages without splits would be nice, too.

      Hi Kyle,

      Thank you for your comment! You actually are able to send one-time messages to groups and specific people by going to the “Send a Message” section on your account. From there you can schedule a one-time message to go out at a specific day/time, or you can send the message right away.

      Although 160 characters is the limit for normal SMS text messages, we do have MMS messaging available. MMS messages allow you to include up to 1550 characters, as well as allowing you to attach images and other media. You can read more information here: https://mobile-text-alerts.com/blog/new-feature-mms-messages-picture-or-audio-messages/

      I’ll forward your suggestion about including this in the new system. Feel free to comment on here or shoot me an email at samuel.evan@mobile-text-alerts.com if you have any other questions!

    I’d like the ability to make a note next to each person’s name that is only visible to myself and our other administrators. Your system has turned into a bit of a contacts database for us because it has quick access to everyone’s phone number, so the ability to make a short note that is associated with a certain subscriber would be nice. I know that’s not necessarily the intended use of this system, but it’s a way that it has worked for us.
