Short messages are a great way to send out a quick message to an employee that doesn't require them to take an action. The most common use of short messages are recognitions for birthdays and work anniversaries.

Add an image

To include an image in a short message follow these steps:

  1. Create or edit an existing Pyn.

  2. In the short message, click edit the text and select the "+" option that appears.

  3. Upload an image saved as .jpeg, .png, or .gif into the short message.

It is important to note that since there is no action for the employee to take like a Read More or Acknowledge button the analytics on short messages will not be available.
