Messenger v5 Contact Attributes

You can easily manage the attributes of the contacts in Messenger v5.

Contact Attributes are 'tokens' - essentially these work in a similar way to a mail merge. For example, you may wish to setup a group message to remind students and parents to pay a monthly sum towards a forthcoming school trip. This message may need to be sent many times and to many groups and the contract attributes option allows you to configure a value that can be easily used and updated.

Please note you will need to be logged in as a user with Administrator rights -  speak to your Groupcall Administrator if you think you should have this role.

From the home screen in messenger, select Admin.
