Yes. Another highly requested feature is the ability to send to multiple groups. You might have created a men’s group and a woman’s group. Perhaps, you wanted to send to both about the men’s vs. women’s cookout. Now, you can select both groups and create a new merged group. This isn’t dynamic and would not keep being updated, but you can send to any groups. The selecting of multiple groups currently only works on desktop, but once you create this new merged group, this will also be accessible via the app.

There are several ways you can accomplish this. You can use the "new" button at the top of your screen, you can select multiple groups to message in the groups page, or you can add groups to a conversation via the inbox. Check out the "how-to" video below for details. 

To message multiple groups by using the "Groups" page:

  1. In the groups page, click the box next to the group(s) you wish to message.
  2. click "Send SMS"
  3. Next, name your new merged group (we recommend naming it something that lets you easily know who the recipients are - ex. Mens and Womens groups)
  4. You will now be brought into the inbox, and a new conversation box will be created.
  5. At the top of the box, you will noticed the name of the group, and the number of recipients in that group.
  6. Type your message and choose to send now or schedule it.

To message multiple groups using the "New" button:

  1. Click the "New" button on the top right of your screen.
  2. Select "Message"
  3. A new conversation box will appear and in the search bar, you can search for people or groups to add by name, group name, phone number or tag.
  4. Once you click on the person or group, they will be added to the right of the screen. Click the "x" next to the search bar once you are finished adding recipients to the group message.
  5. You can remove recipients by clicking the "trash can" icon next to the name of the person or group.
  6. You can now type your message and choose to send now or schedule it.
  7. After you send your message, under the "group edit" tab, you can change the group's name, add a keyword and/or sync with an external app. 

To message multiple groups from the inbox:

  1. Select your first group by either using the group filter in the inbox (to view previously messaged groups) or you can use the search bar to search for names of people or groups you wish to message.
  2. Once the conversation box appears, click the red "plus" icon to add more recipients. This will bring you to the same screen as the previous option where you can search for and add people and groups to your thread. 
  3. In the search bar, you can search for people or groups to add by name, group name, phone number or tag.
  4. Once you click on the person or group, they will be added to the right of the screen. Click the "x" next to the search bar once you are finished adding recipients to the group message.
  5. You can remove recipients by clicking the "trash can" icon next to the name of the person or group.
