This page shows the standard signatures which will be used with each type of message. At the moment, there are 5 default categories.

Each of the signatures works in the same basic way. So, looking at one example should be enough.

Clicking on the purple arrows will open the list of merge fields available.

To use merge fields

Step 1

Position your cursor where you want to insert the merge field.

Step 2

Click on the purple arrows.

Step 3

Click on the merge field you wish to use.


In some of the signatures, you will see this message: "Required: STOP to Opt Out and either [Org Short Name] or [User Short name}.

This means that your message MUST include STOP to Opt Out. [This tells the receiver how to stop receiving messages.]

Then, EITHER your Org Short Name or your User Short Name. [This tells the receiver who the message is from.]

PastorsLine has reminders in place if you try to save a message which does not fit these requirements. Note the orange text in the examples below.

Example 1: The error message reads "Required: STOP to Opt Out".

Example 2: The error message reads "Required: [Org Short Name] or [User Short Name]".
