A useful feature of Mobile Text Alerts is the ability to set up administrators for your account.

Setting up administrators allows several advantages.

  • It allows multiple people access to send messages from your Control Panel.
  • It allows group leaders to send messages by texting in with their own personal phones.
  • It allows group leaders to send text messages from their own personal email addresses.
