Send Text Messages
The permission required to view this page is "Send Text Messages".
Before you can send text messages, you need to register for an account with our 3rd party texting service. Click here and register for a free account. Then, once registered, log in and go to your "Settings > All Settings" page.
Scroll down and click on the "API Keys" link then click on the "Create new key" button. Leave all boxes blank then click on the "Save New Key" button at the bottom.
Your API key will look like a random set of characters e.g. jhkuhYUIYUgfuygfIKiPOIPOUIUG.
Copy it (highlight it then Ctrl + C on your keyboard) and paste (Ctrl + V) it into the "Setup > Club > Details" page on the "Extended Details" tab in the "SMS API Key" field.
Contact us if you need help with this.
Once you have done the above steps you will see the form to send text messages.
You can only send test messages to UK mobile phone numbers. Any member who does not have a mobile phone number added to their profile will not show on the list.
Select the individual members, the groups or the sessions you want to text and enter your message. Click on the "Send Text" button to send it.
The 3rd party service may place your first bulk text message on hold for manual review. This is to check for spammers and unfortunately we don't have any control over this.
