Aside from the traditional email and calendar invites, FreeConference.com now has SMS invites available on the premium subscriptions. This article will walk you through how to use this new feature.
How do I enable SMS Invitations?
Please go to the Settings button on top of the page. On the left hand side you will see the Conference Invitations tab, click and you will see different invitation types that you can send on our platform. The new section, SMS Invitations, will be near the bottom:
If you enable SMS Invitations, the invitations will be sent via an SMS notification to the listed phone number.
Entering the phone numbers to send SMS notifications.
The best bet to enter phone numbers is to go to your Address Book, click on Menu (which can be found if you click on your name and email address on the top right of the page), and then the Address Book tab, which should be the first tab from the top.
From there you can create your contacts, and in the fields of name, email, and phone number, put in the appropriate information, the phone number that is entered here will receive the SMS invitations from your scheduled calls. Please keep in mind that this has to be a mobile phone number or a device that can receive SMS notifications.
Sending SMS notifications, it’s as easy as scheduling your call
Once you’ve been through the past 2 steps, there is no more setting up required. Just go through the scheduling process that you normally do. On the second page of the scheduler, you will see the page where you can select your participants, if you select a participant that has a phone number attached to on your address book, an SMS invite will be sent to that phone number.
