Using the IBM Notes Client
Sending Text

2. When you click on the above button, this form is presented:

Remember to click on the gray boxes:

3. Type the numbers you require in the format <CountryCode><MobileNumber>. In both elements, zeros may not be typed.

Using Contacts
When you send SMS you can ask the system to store the details of the person you are using. You may also create these records by copying documents from the Personal Address Book. Once these records exist in the database you can use these here:

Click on Contacts tab:

Click on the roundbutton bar to use the selected contacts.

Using Groups of Contacts
1. Click on Group tab:

Click on the roundbutton bar to use the selected groups.

1. Smart Groups contain references to contacts but not actual names or phone numbers.
2. Changing contact details does not affect a Group until you edit that Group. However, when groups are used for sending Multi-SMS, phone numbers come from the original Contact Record.
3. When using Groups, if a Contact was removed from the database, or has become private, the phone number will not be added to the list of recipients.

Unicode Characters
Use this option if the text you are about to send includes Non-Germanic characters. This will ensure your text is readable by your recipients in almost any language. This feature also works for Semite languages such as Arabic and Hebrew. Note that messages using Unicode characters are 70 letters long only. From smsPULSE V4 Unicode conversion is automatic.
