Administrative Users can send text messages directly from the system. Text messages are meant to be a short message, one or two sentences long and may be sent to cell phone numbers that have opted into receiving texts only.
It is recommended that the text message feature only be used for urgent messages and not for messages around marketing, registration and account balances. Cell phone owners often remove their number from a text distribution list when programs do not use for urgent situations. Instead, please use email to communicate marketing, registration and account balance messages.
When sending text messages, please consider FCC laws and rules regarding text messages. Click here to view the Federal Communication Commission's Text Message Guide. Following FCC rules, users may reply STOP to be removed from text lists by setting Receive SMS to No in their People record. To opt back in to receiving text messages after opting out, the user must text the word START to the number they initially opted out of.
