OMG! VolunteerHub is pleased to announce a new webinar to showcase the SMS/Text feature. If you’ve ever wondered how to enhance communication within your organization, here’s your chance! Take advantage of this opportunity to link your communication chain up to the next level!
How the Feature Will Help You:
With this new feature, reminder text messages can automatically be sent to your volunteers. Think about the benefit of extra reminders without you lifting a finger! Plus, you have the ability to create manual text messages as needed. In today’s fast paced world, this feature has the potential to grab your volunteers’ attention like never before, thus improving attendance at your events.
How to Get Started:
First, your organization will need to make an opt-in question on your user form. If a user opts in, he or she will then receive automatic and/or manual text messages. When a reminder email is sent, this automatically triggers a text message to also be sent. The text will include the word “reminder” in addition to your organization name, event name, date, and time.
