DEDICATED NUMBERS

Cascade SMS requires a dedicated inbound number or shortcode provided by VoodooSMS,

This will give you the flexibility of having as many, or as few, keywords as you require, without the limitation of a shared inbound number where keywords may have already been taken by another customer.

DEDICATED NUMBERS
CASCADE CONTACT LIST AND CASCADE GROUPS

CASCADE CONTACT LIST AND CASCADE GROUPS

The Cascade Contact list holds all the mobile numbers which you wish to use within the Cascade module. The numbers then can be assigned to one or more group configurations, which can then be harnessed with the keywords to create an extremely powerful SMS solution.

Each number can be easily added to one or many groups very easily in several different ways. Either when uploading the contact list, by manually selecting the contacts and adding them to a group, or individually managing each number. Removing a contact from a group is also extremely easy and this is all explained in more detail later in the document.

TIP: Each contact can be assigned to one or many groups allowing you to build the group membership as you require.
