Sending text messages with SendHub


‚Äč
SendHub uses the standard short-messaging-service (SMS) to send text messages, so text messages can only be sent to mobile phone numbers or other SendHub users.
 
But unlike most messaging tools that use SMS, SendHub allows you to send text messages up to 500 characters. It's important to know that each SMS message can only be 160 characters, so messages longer than that will include a “read more” link that recipients can tap to read the entire message contents.
 
To send a text message (SMS) with SendHub, click on the "New Message" button at the top of the screen. The message input screen will appear.

In the "To" field,  add the contacts, Groups, or individual mobile phone numbers you want to send your message to. You can add up to 25 individual contacts at one time.
 
In the "Message" field, type the text message you want to send. If you'd like to send the message immediately, click "Send."
 
Note: You can also send your message to Facebook or Twitter by checking the boxes under the message field. If you have not authenticated with Facebook and Twitter already, you will be prompted to do so.
 


Scheduling text messages for later

If you'd like to schedule your text message to go out at a specific date and time, click the clock icon in the "Create Message" screen and enter your desired date and time in the fields that appear. SendHub will automatically send your message at that time.
 
To access the list of your scheduled messages, go to your "Messages" inbox, click the down arrow next to "All Messages" and select "Scheduled" from the drop-down menu.
 
From there, you can edit or delete any scheduled messages that have not yet been sent.
 
Note: You cannot schedule text messages that have attachments.
 


Sending text messages with attachments

SendHub also makes it easy to send text messages with attachments. These attachments can be PDFs, photos, Google Drive documents, and more.
 
To send a text message with an attachment:
 
  • Create a new message and select the contacts you want to send the attachment to
  • Type a short message in the "Message" field
  • Click the paperclip icon below the "Message" field. A file chooser window will appear. From there, you can find attachments from your computer's hard drive, your Dropbox, Google Drive, or Box accounts, or photos from Facebook and Instagram.
  • Select the file you'd like to attach.
  • Click "Send"
 
When you send a text message with an attachment, SendHub uploads the file to our secure servers and creates a link to it. We then include that link in the body of the message you send.

Note: This attachment link will not be visible in the "Message" field. It will only appear once you've sent the message.
 
When your contacts receive the text message with the attachment, they can simply tap the link to access the file you've sent.
 


Including a signature in your messages

SendHub allows you to include a signature with every outgoing text message.
 
To add a signature to every text message:
  • Navigate to “My Settings” by clicking the gear icon in the upper right corner
  • Scroll down to “Message Settings”
  • Type your desired signature into the text field below the “Signature” option
