Opting out of both texting systems at once
We have two systems for sending texts. One is initiated by email and is free. The other uses a 10 digit phone number, often the church's office number. Previous to this release opt outs for these were handled completely seperately.
With this release texting STOP to the Text-to-Church, 10 digit phone number also stops texts coming from email addresses like email@example.com. This means that the person's member attribute, Mobile Carrier is set to No Texting.
When someone opts out, it will show up prominently on their member profile. If you need to opt them back in, click on the date and make that change on the next page.
Members can easily see and manage their Contact Preferences in the App. Both types of texts are disabled here. One or both can be re-enabled as well.
This will give your members greater control over their texting preferences by texting STOP to the 10 digit Text-to-Church number. The App, of course, is more visually clear.
