HOW TO WORK WITH THIS PAGE
As you can see, this page is structured in two columns.
This column shows all the PastorsLine numbers you have access to. The list of numbers will be populated by the PastorsLine platform. In other words, the owner/admin of your account(s) will give you permissions for these numbers.
If you have a long list of numbers, you can use the Search feature (magnifying glass icon, brown arrow below) to find it more easily.
Look at the turquoise arrow in the image to the left. As you can see, you could scroll down to more numbers in this list.
To shorten the process, on the Search line, type in the number you want to work with (brown arrow in image to the left). We have typed in the PastorsLine short code, 77411.
If found, this column will automatically refresh to show you the number you searched for.
If you click on a number, you will see your signatures associated with that number. This/these will open in the right-hand column.
NOTE: SIGNATURE TEMPLATES
These are templates you have set up. They stay in this category, like a template library. You can then assign them to as many numbers as you wish.
How do you create a signature template?
This column shows the current signature option(s) available for the number you chose. Depending upon the setup for each number, you will see one or more or the following signature types:
The default signature used for one-to-one texting via a local PastorsLine number.
The default signature used for group texting via a local PastorsLine number.
The default signature used for texting via a regular toll-free number.
The default signature used for texting when using the PastorsLine shared short code.
You may also see this type of signature used for texts sent via the PastorsLine high-throughput, verified toll-free number.
