SMS Capabilities for Automated Marketing Campaigns
Edited

You can now enable SMS for the 7-day Promo, It's Been 30 Days, and It's Been 60 Days campaigns!

Once enabled, only diners who have opted-in to receive SMS marketing will receive texts with the campaign promos. If diners are subscribed to both SMS & Email marketing, they will receive the initial campaign promo via email and if unused within 24 hours, they will receive the campaign promo via SMS.

At this time, you cannot edit the text body message, but you can view a preview of the initial SMS & reminder SMS (if enabled).
