Contacts are recipients of SMS and email messages sent out by VMR.
Select Client Tools > Manage Contacts to access the Manage Contacts page.
The list of contacts is shown with the options to set a number of filters.
Select Add or Edit a contact and fill in the details.
- First Name, Mobile or Email are compulsory fields.
Click Manage Groups to access the Manage Contacts Group page.
The Email Alias field forms the email address of the contact group in VMR.
In our example, let us assume that we have the following settings:
- A contact group with email alias as “alertgroup”
- VMR’s accepted smtp domain: fluidsms.com”
- VMR’s email to SMS feature is active
Any emails sent to VMR with recipient as email@example.com will be converted to SMS to all members of this contact group.
