There are many ways to add people to a PastorsLine (PL) group.
I. Add a person who is not already part of your PastorsLine people
1.1 Use a keyword which adds them to a group
1.2 Import them into a group
1.3 Sync via an internal integration
People can text a keyword to your PastorsLine number or one of the shared PL numbers to opt in.
Are your contacts in a .csv file? You can import them into PL.
Set up an integration and sync your people.
