SMS Messaging in eBECAS

You can use SMS messaging to send text messages to individual or selected groups of Students and Student enrollments.

You need to register and pre-pay with either of 2 SMS messaging services we support (Clickatell or Australian based WholesaleSMS). When you have a registered account with either of these service providers, you can enter the details and send SMS messages.

We provide SMS bookmarks that you can use in your message to tailor the message for the Student.

Sending SMS messages

You can send messages from the Student Search screen or the Enrollment search screen:

 

Select the Word Merge button, and the Merge column is displayed on the grid. Select the enrolments you want to send the messages to (you can filter the grid by any field – right click the column title bar)

SMS Templates

You can setup SMS Templates in eBECAS from Main – Utilities – Setup Configuration – SMS Templates and register, edit and view templates for the Enrollment and Student Search areas.
