The following guide will show you how to send a single or bulk message from within your account.
Simply click on "Sending" on the left-hand control panel menu, select the "Send Message" option and follow these easy steps:
Sending an SMS
Type the number(s) that you would like to send a message to in the "To" field and/or select the specific group you would like to send a message to, by clicking on the "+ Group" button to the right of the "To" field. Once you have added your required numbers/groups, you can continue by typing your message in the "Message" field, as seen below:
Once you have typed your message, you can move down to the bottom right of the page to preview your message by clicking on the "Preview & Send" button. If you are happy with the contents of the message, you can proceed to send the message by clicking on the "Send" button.
The system will confirm that your messages have successfully been sent, and you can then choose to view your "Reports", return to your "Dashboard", or send another message by clicking on the "X".
Your Opt-out list will always be checked by default against your numbers at time of send. When the "Ignore Opt-out list" option is selected, numbers will not be checked against your opt-out list, and all your selected recipients will be included in the send, as seen below:
