Opt-Out

If you do not want your players / members to opt-out of system notifications please check the box.

Organization Short Name

Set up an abbreviated name for your organization because you are limited to 160 characters per text alert. This will allow for more message. See Example below.

TRSC could be the Short Code for Tennis, Racquet and Swim Club

Text Allowed: You would check this box if it was a notification you wanted Players or System Users to be eligible to receive.

Text Subscribed: By checking this box under the Text Alert setup, Players or System Users are going to be subscribed by default to those types of Text Alerts.

Go to Settings - Organization Settings - System Users

Edit the person and add their phone number.

Check the box for who will receive the bulk text. If you have Primary to receive email notifications for the child this will also work for text alerts too.

Add additional recipients

You can also copy System Users. (If a System User does not show up it means they have not added a phone number to their System User profile. Go to Settings - System Users and edit and add the phone number to their profile.)
