Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Can I text anyone with a mobile number? No. Your attendees will need to opt-in and agree to receive text messages from you. Once you have turned on the Text Message Blaster app, your attendees will have the option to opt-in to receive messages when they register or when they join your organization.
  2. How can my attendees opt-out? Attendees can choose to opt-out and stop receiving text messages from you at any time. The easiest way is for them to log in to their account and edit their Organizations details or when registering for an event.
  3. What if not all of my attendees have opted in to receive text messages? When you draft a new text message to send, you will have the option to send the message via email to anyone who has not yet opted in to receive messages from your organization.

Note: Text messages are purchased by account. If you have multiple sub-accounts, you'll want to purchase a package for each sub-account.
