As a means to allow business users more options in message and communications with their clients. Clubs want to be able to send Emails, Push and SMS messages.
As a Business user, I want the option to send SMS to my clients, so that I may communicate important news.
Enhancing the current messaging feature located in the top of the location Dashboard, this feature expansion will allow Team members to compose and send an SMS text message to select members, groups or session participants. A key point to remember is that clients may opt out (a V2 Member App feature) for communication options like SMS, push notifications and email, as such this feature will only send to those still Opted-In for SMS.
Instructions for use
