If you are using Salesmate built-in Calling and Text feature, then you can use text messages using Sequences. Salesmate supports two kinds of sequence steps for text messaging.
As the name suggests, the "Auto Text" step send text messages to customers on scheduled date and time without any manual intervention. As soon as this step reaches, the system will send a text message to the contact's mobile number and will move to the next step.
This step requires manual intervention. Once contact hits this step, a text message gets generated and assigned to a user, and contact gets marked as pending inside the sequence. Now user can view, edit, or send this text to the customer with or without any additional personalization. Unless this text gets sent or skipped, the contact will not move to the next stage of the sequence.
