Hurricane Katrina - Need for SMS/Text
How does it work?
Find Our Folks is a quick and easy way to send out SMS messages to groups of people.
You will need a two-way number which enables you to receive messages back from the contacts which you sent the original message to.
All you need to do is select the group of contacts you would like to send your message to and then compose the message. After clicking send, you can view your Find Our Folks Report by clicking on the Reporting section on the left.
In the Find Our Folks Report, you can find out :
We have made sure that it is easy to find those who have not replied to your message by labeling the contact red and their name at the top of the list. Those who have replied will be labeled green and will be under the list of those who haven't replied.
You can send another message to Non-Responders by clicking on the button under the report table - making it easier for you to pick out those who haven't responded and quickly reach out to them again.
