I did not see this on the wishlist in the list of 339, unless i missed it :).
SMS (text) notication option would be great to have as alot of our members use texting on their phones. Email works good too but push text woould be great to have as an option for communication. Thanks.
After initial analysis we decided to remove this feature from 2017 plans. Right now we don’t have clear understanding when this feature will be taken into development.
We would use this almost the same as we would use email. Mostly though we would use it for sms blasts, reminders and/or last minute changes to events and such. Giving the members the options to choose how they would like to recieve communications is a great option to offer them. We currently only use it for short messages as it was intended for and not like other that use it as a replacement to email.
Hope this helps.

You are right, this has not come up before.
What are the situations when you would like to use this? SMS-blasts to groups? Individual alerts about specific situations (e.g. renewal)?
I would appreciate comments from others who consider this to be important.
