PluralSMS Provides a robust contact management systems that allow you to add and maintain your contacts on the system so you can send SMS to the saved contacts at any time.

You manage contacts just like a phone book by grouping them eg

A single number or contact can belong to multiple group. This simplifies the process of sending messages as you don't have to copy numbers or upload every now and then. Just create the groups and reuse them at any time you want.

The Phone Book menu in pluralsms provides everything you need to do on Contact management .

  • Contacts - List all uploaded contacts
  • Add Contacts,this allows you to add a contact to your contact list
  • Import Contacts - Import Contacts from a file - csv format supported
  • Contact  Group - Shows list of groups you have created eg, group1, group2 etc

Let's get started with a step by step process.

  • Click Upload and Preview to upload the contacts and preview
  • Specify the group you want or choose and existing group
  • In column mapping, map the columns from you csv file to the appropriate column eg, if the column heading for mobile phones in your csv is Numbers, then map the numbers to mobile column so the system can import it correctly
