You can use a template to send SMS text messages to staff and members. This can be helpful when you want to send out texts to a group of people (like for a class cancellation) or want to send a one-off text to a student or staff member.
Sending a Custom SMS Text to One or More People
You can send a custom SMS text to one or more people in your database from the People icon, a report or a member's profile. From the People icon or a report, just check the box next to the person(s) you want to send a message to, then click the Choose Template button. In the template popup you will see Blank SMS Text. Choose that and you will be presented with a SMS text template where you can enter your message.
Just highlight & delete the warning text in the template, then type your own custom message. You can use the tags in the tag bay if you want to further personalize it.
After you finalize your message, click on the Send Email Now button at the top to send your text message out to the selected people.
