Firstly, we decided to give priority to mobile apps (iPhone and Android), which are free and allow the sending of push notifications to all those who download it (free notifications also). Indeed, a player who receives a convocation by push notification can directly click on it and respond via the app, which is really handy.
But we are facing many requests for the need to send SMS, so we will make SMS alerts possible soon.
You will be able to send SMS:
- From the new mobile apps, in which case it will be free as the SMS will be from your telephone plan (usually in unlimited SMS)
- Secondly from the web interface, but in this case we will have to pay the SMS to the operators, so you will have to buy yourself "SMS packs"; It will be about 5 cents per SMS.
Note that if the SMS messages leave from the web interface, the players could answer Y or N to their call-up by SMS, which would be taken into account automatically by SportEasy.
The idea would be to send SMS messages only to players who do not look at their emails and do not have the mobile app (again, push notifications are more convenient because they allow you respond directly in the App).
