This component responds to SMS “jobs” scheduled in GoldMine for:
Activity Code: TXO
Activity Type: Other Action
Date/Time: Choose, or leave alone for immediate processing
Tip: The way to do a blast, or broadcast, is to define a filter or group in GoldMine, then do a group schedule operation, using the options as above, but scheduled en masse for the filter or group.
Blast checks GoldMine's cal table every 10 seconds by default.
Note: this module is not needed if you have no plans to send out broadcast or scheduled Text messages. If you only plan to send out blasts at specific times of the year you can leave it turned off 'til needed.
Tip: GoldSMS Blast can be used in conjunction with GoldMine's Automated Processes module to react to fast-changing urgent information, like financial or mortgage market fluctuations. Or you could integrate Texting into a series of escalating reminders, as might be used in medical/dental scheduling.
