SMS Templates are a great way to send out an SMS to a contact or contacts without having to write the same message every time. What makes SMS Templates even better is that you can use Mail Merge Fields with your SMS Template to merge inspection time, advertised prices, contact names and much more.

All Mail Merge fields are compatible with SMS Templates and you can view the full list of merge fields in IDashboard by going to Admin & Account Settings > Library > Mail Merge Fields. Or alternatively you can view the iDashboard Mail Merge fields via the articles below.
