Messenger provides you with an immediate, cost effective and simple way to communicate to your staff, suppliers and customers directly to their text capable mobile devices.
The service offers a couple of simple ways to send SMS messages. In addition, it is easily integrated with your existing systems (using email or a simple API) to update or alert people with the added benefit that the message is received wherever the recipient may be.
Messenger offers various interfaces to meet the needs of users:
Mobile message recipients can then reply from their phone straight back to the original sender using patented mTag technology from Bulletin. Advanced features are available using the power of the Bulletin Messenger Address Books and customized security settings.
Signing Up to Messenger
The email address is used to validate your account and can also be used to send SMS via email once you are in the system. There is not much point using a one time email address as you will never be able to send SMS from it will you?
Once you have these at hand visit https://www.bulletin.net/sign-freetrial/messenger to signup.
As a bonus we will even give you a few free messages so you can see how it all works before you part with some of your hard earned cash.
You will receive an email full of information so read it and have a look at the links so you can get the most out of Messenger.
There will be some things you can't do before you make a payment such as sending heaps of messages but once you make a payment we will then remove any limits. It's not much but we find it helps cut down on spam and that is something we are quite keen on.
This account you have just created is has Group Administrator rights. You can now create up to 5 other accounts or contact us if your company has a larger requirement.
Making your first payment
To make your first payment you will need:
Once you have logged into Messenger you can top up your account through the account balance display or via Bulletin Dashboard. The Bulletin Dashboard is the online access and payments portal for Bulletin's range of services.
You can top up your Dashboard balance at any time using Paypal or simply by using our online credit card payments. If you are a corporate client that has large volume requirements and therefore needs to establish an invoice relationship then please contact our sales team with details of your requirements.
This service has different user types:
While messaging functionality is basically the same, each has different options available for account administration and security.
User - This user has their own unique login and possibly a separate billing account, and may share address books or other information with other Company Users, but all administration is done by the Company Administrator. The Company Administrator should be contacted with any queries a User may have.
Email User - The Email user will not have any login details to the Bulletin Messenger website. Instead, their email address will be enabled for SMS via Email by their Company Administrator and they will be able to send and receive SMS via email only.
Web Browser Requirements
We recommend IE9 or above, Chrome, Firefox, Safari as Messenger makes use of responsive design - using up your screen real estate effectively in these browsers. Don't worry if you are using the ancient IE8 - Messenger degrades gracefully just like any decent product should.
Internet Explorer 7.0 and older are not supported and we suggest you visit http://www.browserchoice.eu to find a new one if you are still using early versions of and don't want to be the target of viruses any longer.
Security is a major concern when accessing a website you don't know and have not grown to trust yet. All traffic to and from the Messenger service is over secure HTTPS connections. None of your personal information is stored in cookies on your PC but we recommend that you check this yourself to put your mind at ease.
On the subject of security we recommend you do not use the same password on our service as you do for other on line services. On our systems your passwords are stored securely (hashed) but on your browser they may not be.
Making it yours - Theming
Messenger has a selection of built-in themes so you can brighten (or darken!) up your day.
Both users and company administrators can set themes. If a company administrator has set a custom theme for the company, user themes will be disabled.
Theming can be found under Messenger Settings (Cogs Icon) in the Theme Options sub-menu.
Click to view page map
We now give you the opportunity to change your theme at a User Level!
Messages, Drafts, Templates, Blocks, Contacts
Messenger has very powerful searching capabilities built into each of the main screens at the top left of the table.
The search by default does a sub-string search so for example searching for food would return
This can be useful when you want to broadly find something, but at other times you need something more precise, for example you may want to find food at the start of a sentence. In this case your search string should be:
And if you want to find fun at the end of a sentence you would use:
You can do even more powerful searches - in fact you could make it hugely powerful. If you are keen - take a look at Wikipedia and there are plenty of guides on POSIX regular expressions on the Internet
Always present at the top of the screen is the search documentation box. Simply type in the phrase or element you are searching for and a new window will open and search the online help and documentation.
Composing a Message
How to Send a Message
Your message will be sent using Bulletin global coverage of mobile networks. It usually works but sometimes your message may not get delivered. If it does not get delivered, check you have number correct, resend the message and if it is still not working then get in touch. You can see from the Status Pie Chart in the Sent Messages Section if there has been an issue in sending your message.
Once you have mastered the sending of a single message you may like to know that you can add more recipients in the same manner as the first or even paste a list of numbers from excel and press the ADD button or use the Bulk Uploader for CSV files of recipient lists. You can Schedule messages, use Templates and even use the Contacts and Groups from your Address Books. The recipient list (Recipients) allows a comma, space or semi-colon separated, list of numbers or Contacts from your Address Book.
Although the service supports sending SMS via Email to mobile numbers, your administrator may have configured the system to only allow messages to be sent to people in your Address Book using existing names or aliases. An additional administrator setting is to lock address books so only the administrator can add contacts to the Company Address Book. This setting will apply to both the Web site and SMS messages via email.*
Contact Meta Data
Creating and sending messages is a key part of our service. We have looked at how users use it and the things that stop them from using it more often as we adapt over time.
One of the things we know is that a lot of people do not know what International Number Format is. When they (or you) enter a recipient number we look up where we think it is likely to go and display a flag to represent that. If you are only sending to your friends down the street or or colleagues in another state then all your recipients are going to get the same flag. However, if you accidently enter the wrong number this will stick out enough for you to click through and change it before you send your message.
As well as the flag data, you can click the contact to view or edit and can even add a new number to an address book.
Forward 2 Mobile
Forward 2 Mobile relays all conversations to your mobile phone via SMS. You can continue your conversation via SMS just like you do on a normal handset, but with the added advantage of all messages being stored within Messenger securely.
Company Administrators can enable/disable this feature at a user level by going into the User Login tab. In here they can enter the mobile number to which the messages can be forwarded. Individual users can then ‘switch on’ the forward function per message thread or as a default for all messages. You can toggle this feature within a conversation or Inbox view on the Quick Replies too. When selected, all messages will forward to the chosen mobile number. Copies of all messages will also appear on the web platform.
Simple to set-up, Bulletin Messenger allows you to Schedule your SMS Messages for a future delivery. Recurring messages can also be scheduled which will reduce your workload and make sure your team never misses an important meeting again.
The process of scheduling is only pixels different from sending a message immediately. Once you have composed your message you are ready to schedule it. Simply select the drop arrow on the Send button to expose more options, including Schedule. You will then be able to set-up the time frame for delivery.
The easiest way to schedule a one off message is to use the calendar to find a day, click that date and then edit the time of delivery. Your calendar will show other messages you have scheduled which is handy if you need to add this one in reference to any others or avoid sending too many messages to the same recipients on the same day!
Alternatively, you can click Schedule again and choose from the delivery options.
Advanced Scheduling Options
Recurring Messages - The process for recurring messages is similar to that as for a single message, you can even change a one-off message to a repeating one simply by editing it after it has been created. When creating or editing a scheduled message, if you want it to repeat then check the Repeats... check box and choose the period type (day, week, month or year) and a number between 1 and heaps. Each period also has different options that makes sense when you see it in action.
Time Zones - Handy for if some of your team is not in the next room, you can schedule a message for delivery in a different time zone. Think of it as time travel without the jet lag.
Scheduling to Groups - If you schedule a message to an address book group, the members of that group will be looked up as the message is about to be sent. This is a very powerful feature when you use recurring messages as it allows you to update your address book groups with new members, delete old ones and the next time the message is sent it will go the new set of recipients.
Viewing Future Messages
You can view future messages by clicking the Scheduled Messages link from the Compose Screen. The (default) list view shows your upcoming messages and allows you to click through to view recipients and edit the schedule. If you think you should be able to edit the content here then you are correct. That should be something you can do soon, just not at the moment sorry.
To get other perspectives on your future messages toggle between List, Day, Week and Month views.
Bulletin Messenger allows you to leave the compose screen and pick up where you left off by finding your message in the Drafts. A handy feature if you are waiting for confirmation on a location or date for a pre-planned event or meeting.
Uploading Recipient Files
The power of Bulletin Messenger is in the ease of use for group messaging and team communication. Generally the Address Books are sufficient for your needs but there are occasions where you need to send a one-off message to a group of clients from another database. You copy a list of numbers directly into the messenger compose page to box. if you are copying a column from excel then it will just work. If you are copying from somewhere else then make sure there is a space or new line between each number then click the add button to add your numbers to the message recipients.
Alternatively, you can browse to your file of numbers by clicking the bulk send (its a wee truck!) icon to the right of the to field and following those instructions.
When sending any message you should consider the opt out responses. See the info box below for more information as it is particularly important when sending bulk messages.
Bulk File Format
Your file should simply be a list of numbers in international format with one number per line.
SMS Merge in Composer
SMS Merge is a new feature in Messenger. It brings you the power of Dynamic Tagging to the composition of Messages. Something you may be familiar with in Email Marketing but now through Messenger, ready for SMS!
Using Bulletin SMS Merge Tags in Compose you can personalise the content of thousands of SMS so each one of your clients feel like you are TXTing them, and them alone.
Prepare A CSV File for SMS Merge and Upload it
The first step to utilise the power of SMS Merge Tags is to prepare a CSV File. This file becomes a list of your Recipients.
Your CSV file should contain a table of tags you want the message to insert the value of. The file must contain one number per Recipient in an acceptable format, and each recipient's details must be on a separate line.
The first column must always be the mobile number.
In this example a header row has been included defining the name of the tag you can insert. If your CSV does not contain a header row then the tag name will default to the value of the first Recipient listed.
Using the Bulk Uploader (truck Icon) you can upload your pre-prepared CSV file. Once it has been verified the CSV File behaves like a Bulk Recipients List. You will be able to see the number of Contacts you are sending to and where.
Composing with SMS Merge Tags
Once you have uploaded your pre-prepared CSV file then there are two ways to insert the SMS Merge Tags into your message.
If you are entering the Tag Name directly into the Message Content then your CSV should contain the Header row mentioned above.
In the Preview Mode you will see the SMS Merge Tags rendered with the longest value as an example of the message you are sending out. This allows you to keep track of your Message Parts and Character Count as you compose so you can tailor you message accordingly.
SMS Merge Tags and Drafts
Composer automatically saves your messages as you are working and this applies to SMS Merge messages also so you can come back later without loosing your Recipients or your Message Content!
Templates form the base of a message, allowing you to create and save messages that you send often or may need in an emergency. You can share them (admin users only at this stage) or duplicate/copy them as required.
Templates can be named so they are easily recognised in the template list when creating a message. If your profile allows it, messages can be up to three SMS parts (about 459 ASCII characters, or if the message contains any non latin characters then the max is 201)
You can send a template or canned message from the Templates Section. Alternatively, you can select a template from your list from the Compose page and now through the Quick Reply.
It's good practice to identify yourself when sending a SMS message or entering an abandoned building at night. From the Messenger Compose page you can set and use your SMS signature.
A signature will take up space in your message so it pays to keep it short. You also have the option of having Messenger start every message you compose online with your signature already inserted so you don't forget to do it. If you don't need it for a specific message then you can delete it as with any text.
The Messenger Signature is unrelated to an email signature. When using Email2SMS with Messenger we also suggest that you use your email to set a signature. See the Email2SMS Section for more information on customising your account to strip extraneous legal jargon whilst retaining your name in an email.
Message Source and Reply Options
By default all messages sent via Bulletin Messenger will use a pool of numbers designed to facilitate message threading so that if one of your recipients replies with "yes!" you can tell if they
See how things could get confusing if we didn't use a pool of numbers?
The threading pool also allows you to setup forwarding options for when any replies come in. You can do this in your profile page before you send any messages but you may need to contact your Company Administrator to enable this feature for your account. Forwarded messages will be deducted from your message balance as you use them.
Most regions have the option of not using this pool, the main exceptions being the US and New Zealand. We don't provide the ability to set the source as your number in these regions as our experience shows it severely reduces the delivery success of your messages.
For details on how to set the defaults for your account see the Profile instructions.
Virtual Numbers for SMS
Users in the US can subscribe online to a virtual number for SMS. This is a dedicated number, unique to you, that people can SMS into from almost anywhere in the world. Any messages you send will also come from this number, just as if you sent it from your mobile, so your recipient can store the number and knows it's you. The Conversation threading is limited with this option selected.
Inbox and Sent Messages
The Messenger Inbox is constantly updating stream of new messages. As new messages are received by the system they will be pushed to your screen and highlighted in bold so you can stay on top of your communications.
If they are not updating fast enough then you can use the refresh button to check for new messages.
If you are using the Chrome browser then you might like to have desktop notifications enabled within your profile to get real-time alerts of new messages.
Messenger can show a conversation view of your Inbox that allows you to see messages that are part of a conversation.
If you are expecting replies to your sent message then this may the best view for you. If you click on any message in the Inbox it will take you to the Conversation view
Clicking on the mini pie chart (circle beside the message) expands the statuses of the message out and shows a large pie chart for reporting purposes
For each message you have several options available aside from viewing the conversation.
The option to Quick Reply means that you do not need to change screen, fill in any more forms or otherwise interrupt your day. Simply hit the Quick Reply icon and type your message. When you hit send the SMS message will be sent in the background and you can continue to answer your other messages.
On the right of the Send button is a dropdown providing you convenient access to your templates - so you can use them in a Quick Reply.
Quick replies are billable SMS so count towards your included messages or account balance.
SMS messaging is a very personal form of communication and Bulletin would like you to take as much care with the people you message as possible. If someone replies with stop (or any other variant) then we would really like you to stop sending messages to that recipient. To help you stay on the good-side of your customers and also to prevent any accidents... you should make use of the Messenger blocking functionality.
Whenever you are viewing a message you received you are able to easily Block that recipient. You can even do a batch of them at once to save you time. You can view and search and even edit your blocked number list in the Contacts Section under Blocked Numbers.
Some numbers may not be editable. If that is the case then these have been added by your administrator or at the system level. Do not ask to get them removed, it will not happen as they have been added at the explicit request of the recipient.
As with the Inbox, the Sent Messages Section allows you to view messages in chronological order or in a conversation view that groups your messages together and shows how many replies each sent message has.
Within the list view you can see at a glance how your messages are being received. Simple colour coded pie charts show whether your messages are getting received. We base this on data we get back from the carriers as each message is sent. The more people you send to with a single message, the more 'pie' like the image becomes giving you an at a glance picture of the success of your campaign.
For each Sent message you have the option of forwarding it, deleting, viewing the properties or exporting it. Forwarding a Sent message creates a new message using the content which allows you to send the same message to a new set of recipients.
The message properties and export options allow you to view and save data outside of Messenger if you need it for audit or other purposes.
Within the Conversation view, the status pie can be clicked to examine the recipient detail and view or select a subset of recipients for follow up messaging. Select the recipients by status to Resend, Start a new conversation or Block them. Resending will create a new message with all the same information as the last one. This is useful if you need to resend a message to a group that were unable to be reached.
You can start a new conversation with some or all of the recipients which is useful when you need to follow up the last one. For example you had 50 people respond to your first message and now you want to send a new message to only that 50.
Exporting Message Data
Email to SMS messages
White Labeling Email2SMS
The Email to SMS service can function with Custom Domains and Custom Subdomains. Your users will no longer be required to send emails to bulletinmessenger.net and instead can use your domain or else the custom sub domain you have chosen.
Any system emails such as delivery statuses are rebranded with your logo and come from your custom domain or sub domain.
Messages can be sent using a REST API. This is useful for integration with CRM tools such as Salesforce, websites and POS systems.
With callback functionality built in you are able to have replies forwarded back to your application or through to an email address so the write person gets to see the reply as soon as possible.
See the Developers Guide for further details

Using Your Phone To SMS Your Contacts
Group messages can be sent from your registered handset using your on-line address book. This feature gives you the power to send messages from your handset to hundreds of recipients with one single, simple SMS message.
All Mobile Originated (MO) messages need to be sent to +61420300681 (only available from phones registered against an active account).
See the MO SMS instructions page for more details.
Using Address Books in Compose
You can easily browse through or search your Address Books for existing contacts, or groups of contacts, you wish to send a message to through the Address Book pop-up.
With Rich Contacts you can click on newly added recipients and quickly add their details to your address book, or you can alter existing contacts all from the convenience of the Compose screen.
Managing your Online Address Books
The Manage Address Books Section allows you to find, create, delete, export and synchronise your address books.
Shared (Company) Address Books each have read and write permissions that you can modify per Address Book per user giving you fine grained control over who has access to your data. Keep in mind though, things can get out of hand quickly and you may find that if you over use these restrictions your users may end up getting quite confused. Keep it Simple.
Only the Company/Group Administrator can create Address Books that can be shared.
The Online Address Books allow you to add contacts you send messages to on a regular basis.
If you want to use Email2SMS or mobile group messaging then you must use an alias for any group or a contact you create. An alias will be automatically created when you create a contact or group but you can edit them after that as required. Because these aliases can be used as part of an email address, they must conform to those standards and restrictions.
Within each Address Book no two contacts/groups can have the same alias and this is recommended across all Address Book entries too if using Email2SMS. This means that you should not have more than one 'John' alias in any address book, either as a group name or alias, or as a contact alias. This helps avoid confusion when sending to 'John' or using email to send to [email protected].
An Address Book Contact or Group alias is used as the email address when sending SMS via Email. An Alias is a short version of a Contact or Group name.
Address Book Settings
Each Address Book has a number of settings and options. You can change the Address Book name any time.
Address Book type is set only during creation and at this time it is not possible to change it once created. We recommend you copy all the contacts into another address book and drop the existing one if you wish to do this.
Contacts can be imported either to a new address book or over an existing address book - see the section on importing below
Contact property visibility permits you to set which address book fields are visible and searchable using the quick search within the main address book list view above.
Groups and Contacts are listed for each Address Book you has access to. Groups do not have mobile phone numbers associated with them. Contacts have a phone number attached to them. You now have two ways to view and edit a Contact Details. You can access the quick view through the Contact's name where it appears as a recipient, or if you like more room and information in one place, the full page Edit a Contact feature may be more suited.
From any of the contact pages you have options to create contacts, groups or Personal Address Books.
Create Individual Contacts
The new Contact may be assigned to any existing Groups in the Address Book.
You also have the option of adding some tags or properties to the Contact such as position, location department or organisation. These tags are displayed in your contact lists such as the Show Groups page. You can customise displayed tags on the contacts page by editing the address book and selecting visible columns Tags can be searched just like other contact details - handy if you have, for example, a team name as a tag and you would like to text them all without having a group.
If you cannot add contacts or groups to your Address Books then contact your Group Administrator as they may have set higher security settings.
See Importing Address Lists for bulk management options.
Copying Contacts Between Address Books
Contacts can easily be copied between address books - and better still - if you have applied filter criteria for example to copy all staff in a specific team - these can be selected and copied.
To copy contacts between address books, simply view the contacts screen of the source address book and check the contacts. You can filter contacts using the search and select these specifically.
Contacts that are duplicates will not be copied.
Any existing Contacts in the Address Book may be assigned to the new Group. You can access a quick view of a Group's Members through the Group's name where it appears as a recipient, or if you like more room and information in one place, the full page Edit a Group feature may be more suited.
There are two methods of importing address books. The first is an online process done via the website. The second can be automated to upload from for example a CRM system or HRM system. Both methods perform a complete refresh of the specified Address Book (deleting existing contacts that are not in the file, and adding new ones that are in the file).
The online import can be found under the Add or Edit Address Book screen as shown below
If you are wanting to send to a list of recipients one time only (or the list changes regularly) then use the Bulk Sender option on the compose page
Messenger imports files in the CSV format, such as those that can be exported from Microsoft Excel.
The first line of an import file is the section headers, and the minimum import is a file with a number section header followed by a number on each line thereafter.
You can import any field within the Messenger address book - including email, company, position, function, city, department, country
Restrictions and Rules
When importing an address list it is important that the file meets the following criteria.
Confirm that the file looks correct, choose an option below and press 'Save'
Each import file represents the complete definition of an Address Book, including the contacts within the Address Book, and the groups to which they belong. Therefore, if you choose to import into an existing Address Book any existing contacts will deleted and only valid contacts/groups from your import will be in the Address Book afterwards.
If there are any errors or warnings, the system will report them after the import is validated. If you are content to ignore the warnings click "Save" and the file will be imported, otherwise your address book will remain unchanged.
This form will allow you to perform the import process manually so you can check your data before automating the process.User Credentials - Use the same User ID and Password that you use to access Messenger.
*Address Book ID
The Address book ID is a unique number assigned to each address book and will remain the same even if the address book name changes. However, if you delete the address book then that ID will no longer be valid.
You can locate the address book ID on the address book details page. If you need assistance contact Bulletin Support with your account details (login ID and password).
This process can be automated on Linux using curl:
Also supported is the "abname" property, which can be used to refer to the address book by name, rather than via the "abid" property. If both are provided then the abname has priority. Note, that the name can be changed via the website but the ID will remain constant so for automation purposes it is suggested that the abid is used.
Exporting Address Books
Address books can be exported from the address book management screen shown on the right. Upon clicking export you will be prompted with a local location and filename to save the address book to.
Most of your account options are maintained and managed and shared amongst your subscribed services. However, some of them are specific to Messenger and these are managed on the Your Settings page.
Your name is visible to other users within your organisation and can be changed at any time.
Click on the change password text to bring up the change password dialogue. On-screen instructions will provide assistance with providing a password compliant with your organisations selected password policy.
Your mobile number is an important detail to have correct if you are using the forward to mobile or Instant Messaging service. Please note that users cannot share a mobile number (No duplicates)
Change the time zone to alter the way times and dates are displayed in the web site. This does not alter the time displayed on SMS messages (on the handsets) but will give you freedom to be able to view the website in a local time zone.
Your country affects operation of the product, our smart number helper uses your country to work out the correct destination number formats. Country is also used to derive billing currency. It cannot be changed at this time and you must contact support
Account Alert Balance (Prepay Only)
Prepay users are able to set automatic email alerts when their account balance reaches a defined threshold. This is useful as a top-up/refill reminder.
If you'd prefer to have a sequential expanded list of messages - like the old Messenger - select All Messages and that will be the default option after login or after a send.
Inbox is the standard
Conversational Message Threading
Conversational Message Threading groups all messages within a related thread under a single conversation much like Gmail/Outlook and similar.
With this box unchecked, threading will be disabled and all inbound messages regardless of conversation will be shown in your Inbox as well as your sent folder.
By default Messenger is configured to restrict you to sending one message part (160 char ascii or 70 char if the message contains any special characters). You can configure your account to allow more than this here.
This sets the time period after which messages are automatically trashed/deleted. Useful if you want to keep your inbox manageable or are an Email2SMS user only.
Web/Touch2TXT Sender ID
If you have multiple numbers, alpha tags or reply to mobile numbers assigned to your account you can choose to set a default for all messages sent via the Web or Mobile Application.
Email/Outlook Sender ID
If you have multiple numbers, alpha tags or reply to mobile numbers assigned to your account you can choose to set a default for all messages sent via Outlook Messaging or Email2SMS. This allows you to set the source on Email2SMS traffic which is not possible over email itself.
If you are using Google Chrome (http://chrome.com) as your browser you can enable desktop notifications so that your task-bar will notify you each time a new SMS/reply is received. It's how we roll. As more browsers start to support this type of alert we will roll it out to those ones too.
Disable desktop notifications within the Chrome Browser Settings.
These settings are shown only if email2sms is enabled for your user by your company administrator.
Addresses enabled for SMS via Email
Messenger has a selection of built-in themes so you can brighten (or darken!) up your day.
Both users and company administrators can set themes. If a company administrator has set a custom theme for the company, user themes will be disabled.
The powerful reporting interface permits accurate drilldown on the usage of the platform including the ability to export and search.

All online signups have full administrative function - and you can add sub-users or other administrators. Sub-users do not have administrative function. If you are a postpaid offline customer usually the nominated individual in the organisation gets an administrator account and then administers their own user base.
Company Administrators have additional options including security settings, limits and user management. To view the documentation on company administration click here.
For answers to common questions see the comprehensive FAQ section
The Administrator may set some messaging limits for their group. This limits apply across all accounts within the group/company. For example, with three accounts and a message limit of 500 then when the combined total for all three accounts reaches 500 no further messages may be sent.
