Long SMS Support & SMS Support for expanded character sets
🎉 We're excited to announce the release of Long SMS Support in Omnilert.
We know the ability to send longer messages at the scale of SMS is important to convey the full message to your constituents and have released a new capability to enable this.
With Long SMS Support, we take your SMS message—of any length—fit it to the size of a single SMS and provide your Subscribers with a link where they can access the full context of your notification. This entirely avoids the most common concern with "out of order" delivery when sending multiple 160 character texts for a single message. It also ensures that you can communicate the most critical part of your message directly in SMS and still have the full context of your message immediately accessible.
When crafting a message, we'll alert you when your message has overflowed the length of a standard SMS and will then make use of Long SMS Support. This functionality is currently live for all customers. Learn more here.
🎉We're also launching SMS support for expanded character sets today.
This feature will alert you when your total available characters for an SMS have been reduced due to the inclusion of certain characters that limit your total allowed for a single SMS. We'll alert you below the message text box and show your new character limit (70 characters) when we detect the inclusion of one of these characters in your message. But don't worry, Long SMS Support will help you by including a link to your full message no matter what your SMS character limit is. Learn more about expanded character sets in Omnilert here.
