We're working on improving our texting features! Today, we’re releasing two updates 🎉

🔗 Link shortening

We’ve created a new tool that allows you to shorten your URLs in just a few clicks while crafting your text blast. This will help you save characters and squeeze in more information so they can drive even more action.

📱10DLC registration for better deliverability (US recipients only)

The Campaign Registry is introducing a registration process called A2P 10DLC. Registering your organization will not only increase the rate at which your text messages are delivered but will also protect your text delivery to make sure your messages continue to reach your intended audiences. The monthly rate is $5 for low-volume senders and $16 for high-volume senders. Standard customers can now easily get registered in their control panel, on the ‘Add-ons’ page.

Multiple source automations

This update was published on November 3, 2022


A couple of years ago, we launched our automation feature, allowing you to send emails series to a specified list of people. We received feedback that it would be really useful to send the same automation to multiple audiences.

We’re thrilled to announce the addition of a new automation type, multiple-source automations, to solve this problem. You can now enroll multiple groups of recipients into the same automation: no need to duplicate automations to add new people! These groups include:Results of a filter - add people in batches

  • Page settings - add people as they sign up
  • Actions from a “Contact your Representative” and “Signup” ActionButton if you have the ActionButton add-on enabled

To see this new feature in action, watch our recorded video.

We'll also be hosting webinars on December 8th to dig into the strategy, so make sure to register:
Level up engagement with supporter journeys and a NEW automation feature
🇳🇿🇦🇺 APAC friendly: Dec 8th, 9 am AEDT
🇺🇸🇪🇺 North America & EMEA: Dec 8th, 9 am PST / 5 pm GMT

We’re looking forward to your feedback.
