    yes exactly what PureVril said. This is not to replace the email function for newsletters or longer emails etc., but as a notifier for short event reminders or updates.

    Similar notifier systems are used for hospitals to quickly notify staff and web services like Call-Em-All offer this as a product, however it creates double- or triple- entry.

    Not all of our membership would opt into this, so say we have 200 members, I would foresee half wanting to be notified this way so maybe review Call-Em-All and offer something like this as an add-on package.

    We've found in our organization that older members like a phone call, young members like a text and the middle age groups still prefer email to receive notifications.

    It would be great if you could integrate a SMS/robocall service like Call-Em-All and give a notification option where a member can check-box how they want to be notified with multiple ways available to check: email, text, phone.

    Otherwise we'd have to maintain 3 databases - one from our national organization, one from our chapter (Wild Apricot), and one from Call-Em-All.
