Organize contacts into Lists

The easiest way to organize contacts is by grouping them into Lists. It is not possible to add a contact without the list selection.

You can set up lists and then send text messages to all the people in a list with just a few clicks. Textmagic offers these types of lists:

  • Private – a list you have created and have not shared with your team members.
  • Shared by me – a list that you have created and shared with your team members. Your sub-accounts will be able to edit this list and add/remove contacts.
  • Shared to me –  a list that a team member has created and shared with you.
  • Unsubscribers  – a list where contacts are moved automatically if they have unsubscribed from your communication.
    This list is shared between all your sub-accounts.

To create a new list:

  1. Select Contacts from the main menu.
  2. Click on the New list button. Organize contacts create a new list
  3. Enter a list name.
  4. Make the list private or  share it with your sub-accounts. This option can be changed at any time. Textmagic create a private or shared list
