With Text In Church, you can save lots of time by utilizing our two types of messages: Automated Workflow Steps and Scheduled One-Time Messages. Each message type serves a different role, but both are very helpful.
Automated Workflow Steps are a series of messages created for a specific group. These messages are sent based on when someone joins a group (either by texting the keyword or being added manually). From that join “trigger” the messages begin and are sent out based on when you schedule them ahead of time.
Automated workflows are designed to be a follow-up system that you set up once then let run, so you’ll only need to handle incoming replies. You’ll no longer spend hours keeping track of what step you've sent to which person or manually sending messages yourself. Text In Church does all the work for you!
Scheduled one-time messages are found under the Messages tab. These messages are date-specific and can be scheduled as far in advance as you would like. You can see a list of any scheduled messages under the Pending sub-tab of the Messages section. Simply click "Create Message" to create a one-time scheduled message.
After you’ve composed your message, you’ll be able to select to send immediately or schedule to send at a later time. This will allow you to sit down at one time and schedule multiple reminders in the same sitting.
It can go to the individual(s) or group(s) as desired. Text In Church automatically filters all the groups selected. So if people are in more than one group, it will only send it once.
