This short user guide will show you how to send single or bulk SMS using the Send SMS function in Campaign Manager. This function is not Campaign Manager’s primary feature, so if you just want to send simple messages, you may be better off using Message Manager.
Once you have logged on to the Cloud Portal and launched Campaign Manager, use the navigation menu on the left of the screen to select Campaigns, and then Send SMS.
The send SMS function is a condensed version of Campaign Set up, so it uses most of the same basic features. You can search for the recipients you want to send to using a saved search, or enter individual mobile numbers individually.
You then need to choose the response options for the message, either response possible or not possible. Select your deployment time for the message, here you can schedule up to 12 months in advance.
Enter your message copy either by typing into the box, or applying a message template. Finally, choose your validity period up to a maximum of 3 days and click Send SMS.
This function does not allow you to name your campaign and as such you may find it more difficult to find the campaign for reporting.
