Avionté text messaging functionality, sometimes referred to as "MassText", works similarly to MassMail as it allows one sender to notify multiple recipients with the same message.
Text messaging enables a sender to filter recipients based on a variety of characteristics including position title, status, and location.
Note: Text messaging is available through the Start Page > Actions Menu > Advanced Search option as well as the Call-Em-All integration.
Email Profile Setup
Mass Text requires that the sender's email has been configured in the Avionté application. Visit the Email Profile Setup help page for instructions.
Mass Text requires two config options to be enabled.
