Using Your Control Panel: Send a MMS Message

Back to the Blog

If you have added MMS messages (media messages) onto your regular texting services, then you are able to send text messages with images, audio, or other media.  This tutorial will walk you through how to navigate the “Send a MMS Message” page.

Send Message to a Group

From the “Send Message to a Group” box you can designate whether or not you want your message to go out to all of your subscribers, or if you want your message to go out a specific group on your account.

If you would like your message to be sent to every single subscriber on your account, you can check the “Send Message to All Subscribers” box.

If you would like your message to go out to members of a specific group that you’ve set up on your account, you can type the group’s name in the text box and then select the group’s name from the drop-down menu that appears.

(You can click the “Manage Groups” link on the right side of the screen to add, edit, or remove groups from your account.)

If you want to specify which individual subscribers receive the message (rather than sending to an entire group or sending to all subscribers), you can skip this box and scroll down to the “Send Message to Individual Subscribers” box.

 

Send Message to Individual Subscribers

Send a message- individual subscribers

The box that says “Send Message to Individual Subscribers” allows you to manually select specific subscribers to send your message to.  Click the “Send Message” checkbox of every subscriber that you want to receive their message.

You can sort the subscribers by clicking any of the column headers at the top of the table.  For example, if you want to sort the list alphabetically by first name, you can click the “First Name” column header and the list will sort automatically.

You can change how many entries from your subscriber list are shown by clicking the arrow (above the table) that says “Show 10 entries.”  Then from the drop-down menu that appears, you can select 25, 50, or 100 entries.

You can also search through your subscriber list by typing a search query in the text box above the table.

 

Upload Content

This box allows you to upload a media file from your computer to include in your text message.  Click the “Choose Files” button to find the file on your computer.  Select the desired file to attach it to your MMS message.

 

Message Content

 

In the “Message Content” box you can type in the message that you want to send out.  The MMS message can have as many as 1550 characters!

When you are doing typing your message, click the “Send Message” button on the bottom of your screen.  Just to the right of that button is a report letting you know how many subscribers are set to receive your message.
