I think it would be an awesome idea to be able to schedule when text messages are sent out. Some of our staff are sending out weekly texts and this would make it just a little bit easier.

Great idea. There is at least one ministry in our church that would love to use the text messaging feature, but since there is currently no scheduling ability, does not use text messaging.

Great Idea! Our Student Ministries currently uses a separate application for the same reason.

Hi all,

This is a great idea that we have heard more of recently. While we don't plan to add scheduled texting in Access ACS (which is where texting can currently be done) we have partnered with a company (BFAC) that offers scheduled texting and other solutions. Check them out at http://www.bfac.com/ and let them know that you are an ACS Technologies client so that you receive a discounted rate. Another company that some clients are using is One Call Now http://www.onecallnow.com/ which we do not have a partnership with per se.

Hope this information is helpful,
Rebekah

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Schedule a text from Access Acs and be able to text to the parents of children.

Majority of the time we text to the Youth or Parents of Children and I would like to schedule a text to go out at a certain time and day. Please consider making this available.
