How do you handle communications when you have a last-minute cancellation?
With IconCMO, we have simplified the process of reaching out to your members. You can send an email to the parents of preschoolers reminding them to bring egg cartons for a Sunday School project, or remind your Youth Group of an upcoming retreat with a text, all with just a few clicks in the system.
The group module is used to create groups of members or households, send text messages to group members, email members of a group, create events for a group and maintain group event attendance. This tutorial will walk through sending text messages and emails.
Texting a group
In order to send a text message to a member, the member record must contain a cell phone number with the provider selected. If no cell phone provider is selected, a message cannot be sent in the correct format for the member’s phone to receive the text message. For more information on setting up membership preferences, please view our Membership Setup Guide.
Select the group you are sending the text message to in the Grp-Members window. Next, click the Instant Message button. Enter the message you want to send as a text in the Instant Message window. Make sure to keep it brief. Then click Send Text Message.
Emailing a Group
Locate the group you wish to send an email to under the Grp-Members or Grp-Households screen. Once you have the group name selected, click Group Email.
When sending a group email, you have the option of choosing which email address in the system to use. You can select the household email or a member email address. You can also include attachments or print labels for group members without email addresses. To view a report of the emails that were successfully sent, to to Grp-Reports. Select the report type Email Status Report and select the email date, then click show report.
Additional Email Options with our Partners
Our partnership with Constant Contact allows you to export email lists for access to professional templates, personalization features, and email statistics.
If you would like to email a video to your group, we also have a partnership with BombBomb. BombBomb makes it easy to connect with and build stronger relationships with your members through video email.
