Sending a Mobile Message
Sending a SMS/MMS is similar to sending an Email deployment through iPost. We recommend that when sending a single SMS/MMS, that users use the Mobile Content flow from the Preview page of the mobile content. To schedule your SMS/MMS, follow these steps.
- Click on the name of the SMS/MMS content
- Proceed to the Preview step
- Click on the Schedule & Send button
- Configure the SMS/MMS activity
- Click Next
- Click Run Immediately or Schedule
- If scheduling the send, configure the send date and time
- Click Save and Activate your Automation.
Once the SMS/MMS message starts sending, a report will generate and will be in the SMS Tickets option in Reports.
