Text Messaging: Opting In (or Out)


Only a volunteer can set or edit their text messaging settings. If they have enabled text messaging, you will be able to send them text messages.

If a volunteer wants to let you send them text messages, here’s how they can set it up:

  1. Log on to your volunteer profile in MyVolunteerPage.com
  2. Go to: MY PROFILE >> Contact Information
  3. In the “Contact Information” area, scroll to the “Text Messaging” section
  4. Check the box “I want to receive text messages on my cell phone”
  5. In the “Cell Phone Number” field, select the country from the drop list and enter your mobile telephone number (the country will typically auto select based on the number you enter).
  6. Click the [Save] button


If you want to know whether or not a volunteer has enabled text messaging, you can select the “TextMessagingEnabled” column in the Personal Profile Export.
