Updated over a week ago

Incorporate SMS into your abandoned cart automation, win back automation and more. You can not add an SMS action to an automated welcome flow here as the welcome messaging is already set up when you create your keyword and we don't want to cause redundant messaging to customers.

Drag a new Take action! step wherever you'd like the SMS message to occur in the flow. Once the SMS action step is added, select SMS as the Action Type in the left control panel. Once you change the action type to SMS, you must choose a keyword list in the drop-down below and click save.

Editing Your SMS Message

Once you've add the SMS action to your flow and assigned a keyword, you can edit the content of your message by selecting in pen & paper icon on left control panel:

Dynamic Tags Examples for Different Types of Automations
