How do I send an SMS campaign?

An SMS campaign is an effective way to reach your relations. Send a text message as a reminder to invitees or the guests present to thank them personally for their presence.

Settings in the registration form

  1. Go to Registration > Registration Wizard > Fields
  2. Click on the Add field button and choose the type Phone number
  3. At Field Tag , select the option mobile_phone
  4. Click on the Save button
Practical tip
Did you forget to use the field type 'phone number' in the registration form? You can still create this form field and ensure that the phone numbers already entered are linked to this form field in the correct format.
  1. Go to Guests > Guest List
  2. Export the guest list, where you select that access codes should be exported and in any case select the phone number form field
  3. If necessary, adjust the phone number as shown in these examples:
    • Belgium: 32477000000
    • The Nederlands: 31600000000
    • UK: 447000000000
  4. Save the file as .csv file
  5. Import the file and select that you want to use unique IDs
