New Feature: Text in to Easily Send a Message Template

You’ve requested it and now it’s here!

With your Mobile Text Alerts account you are now able to send out a message template from your phone by conveniently texting in a keyword.

As an example, let’s say you always send out the same text to your employees when the office is closed due to inclement weather. You can now set this up in your Message Templates and assign the message a name (let’s call it “Weather”):

If an administrator for the account wants to send this message out, all they need to do is follow the guidelines for sending a message via text and put the template name inside < > signs (<Weather>) instead of typing out the message content.

For example, if a Super Administrator sent “All <Weather>” (no quotes) to 229-299-8227, it will send the message template in the screenshot above to everyone on the account.

Now you can quickly send out full messages just by typing a couple words and hitting “Send”!

Let us know if you have any questions!
