Business owners and staff members will now have the ability to broadcast messages to all customers who are currently registered or marked as attending a particular class/appointment, provided they've opted into receiving this type of message from their accounts under My Account >> Notifications.

Send texts about important information or last-minute changes right to your customer's phones, making sure everyone stays in the loop easily.

In the following guide we'll be covering:

Enable SMS on your TeamUp account

You'll need to have enabled the SMS feature on your TeamUp account to allow you to send broadcast SMS to your opted-in customers.

💡 For an overview and step-by-step guide to setting up this feature, see our Overview of SMS notifications

Sending a broadcast SMS to class attendees (Opt-In Required)

Once customers have registered for their classes, you'll notice a new speech bubble icon on your class detail page.

Once selected, a modal will appear letting you customize the message:

  • The broadcast message can have a maximum of 160 characters

  • You'll only be able to send broadcast SMS to customers who have opted into receiving this type of SMS. The customer counter at the top of the modal reflects this.

💡 Customers will need to opt-in for SMS communications.
