How can I send a text message to a group of volunteers?

Follow

In addition to emailing a group of volunteers at once, it is now possible to send out text messages to a group of volunteers at once.

1. In the Announcements pane in MSP, click "Compose" and select "Text".

2. Type out the text you wish to send - only the "FirstName" and "FullName" tokens can be used in mass texts.  Once you are done writing out your text and choosing who will receive the text, click on the "Preview" button.

3. Once you have previewed the text, click on the "Send to..." button

If you have not setup an SMS account for your MSP license, the first time you send a text you will be prompted to first login to your account and open one. Text messages are a separate charge of $0.02 per message, and will only be received by volunteers with a valid cell phone number entered into the Cell field of their profile.
