PastorsLine was created to help you build relationships through texting and this article is going to show you how to start sending those messages!
In the HUB, make sure that you are in the Messages tab. The Messages icon [yellow box above] will be highlighted.
Step 2: Click on New Message [green box above]. The New Message screen will pop up.
Step 3: Start typing in the search box [purple box above] to find the contact, group name, or number to which you want to send your text message.
As you can see below, typing a few letters will find all the relevant contacts/groups/numbers. Works the same way when you type numbers.
Step 4: Choose the contact(s) / group(s) / number(s) whom you want to text. As you can see below [green box], we have chosen to send to Jason. Then click Next [orange arrow].
You will enter into the New Message screen.
Step 5: Type in your message.
As you begin typing, you will notice that a Clock icon [orange box] will appear. If you click on this icon, a calendar will pop up. Schedule your text message for a later send by completing and saving the date/time details on the pop up screen.
You will also notice that the Send icon [yellow box] will now be a darker color. When you are finished your text message, click on this icon to send it.
Step 6: There are 5 icons on the bottom left-hand side of this area. Do you need any of them? Here's what they do:
Icons 1 + 2: Click here to upload files via our file picker.
Icon 3: Click here to use available merge fields.
Icon 4: Click here to use an existing message template or create a new one.
Icon 5: Click here to use an existing short link or create a new one.
Step 7: Double check your text and then click on the Send icon [yellow box above] to get your message on its way.
