This release of the Messenger service focuses on allowing your customers to automatically Opt into your Bulletin Messenger Address Books, adding the ability to drag and drop your contacts list directly onto the message compose page and personlising your messages with Avatars.

Along with this, as always, we have made many tweaks and alterations behind the scenes to optomise and improve the reliability and performance of our service to ensure you have the best possible experience.

 

Introducing Opt in to your Address Books

This useful addition to Messenger means your customers can send a SMS keyword of your choosing to one of your company’s short codes and AUTOMATICALLY be added to an Address Book.

This saves you time as the customers and Bulletin system take care of everything for you. (Customers can also remove themselves from Address Books using your Companies stop key word)

You can choose the Opt In word and even specify the content of the welcome messages sent to your customers who have chosen to Opt In. You can also create a message to send in the unlikely event people choose to opt out of your Address Book messages.

To set up Opt in messaging today just edit the settings on any of your Address Books as shown below. Do you not have a shortcode? Our friendly sales team is here to help. Simply complete the Contacts Sales form here and one of our Sales team will be in touch shortly.

 

Drag and Drop

At Bulletin were continually working at making our product as simple and fast to use as we can.

This release allows you import a list of Contacts by simply selecting, dragging and dropping your CSV file list onto the compose page. We will automatically import the details to your message so you’re ready to send.

Simple, seamless and speedy!

 

Avatar added to your Bulletin messages

You can now personalise your Bulletin messages by adding a picture that will show as your Messenger avatar. This will appear in all your conversations making messages from specific people easily identified and found.

 

Coming Soon

We’re working hard to bring you the following features before the festive season and end of 2014.

Group Chat – allowing you to create groups of Company Users and immediately chat in real time.

Android Mobile App – meaning you can use all the powerful Bulletin Messenger tools, while on the go, right from your Android device. (iOS can be downloaded today from the iTunes store or click here!)

….and much much more.

As always, we’re always looking for ways to improve and love your feedback. We hope you enjoy the product as much as we do bringing it to you!!
