When a channel has been linked to a group in your MIS, all Student Contacts who are contactable by text message will receive an SMS each time you post in your channel. This is great, as it means that no one misses out on your fantastic updates!
Of course, if you don't have any parents who are contactable by SMS, we won't send any text messages!
Sending attachments by SMS
If you attach a picture or a document to your channel posts, we've designed a simple way of handling this for parents who receive a SMS; we add a secret code and a web link to the end of the message you send.
When parents receive the text, they can click on the web link, enter the secret code and then download the picture or the document that you've sent out.
Simple, safe and...super!
N.B. The URL and the code take up about 70 characters and so you may notice that your SMS count jumps up 1 when you attach something.
