Sending a Message from a Mobile Device


Did you know that you can use Messenger v5 to send messages from your mobile device?

Being web-based means that the Messenger v5 system can be accessed anywhere with an Internet connection. Whilst some administrative functions are best suited to the desktop/laptop environment, sending a message in an emergency or when on the move can be done very easily from your mobile device.

To send a message from your mobile device, simply follow the steps below:
  • Open the Internet browser and enter the address m5.groupcall.com.
    • Why not save the login page as a favourite, bookmark or icon to your phone's homescreen for quick access in the future? Have a look on Google if you are unsure how to do this.
    • The behaviour of the following pages is very similar to that which you will be familiar with on your computer, however so that everything fits nicely on the smaller screen they will look a little different.

 

  • Login as you normally would at your computer.

  • Choosing the "Quick Send SMS Message" option will take you straight in to the select recipients screen.

    • The full M5 site as seen on a mobile phone!

      You can use the "Messenger home page" option to perform the full tasks you will find on your computer, however you will notice that the buttons are quite small. 

  • Choose the appropriate "Send To" option.

  • When you have selected your list of recipients you will be presented with the Message Library from where you can choose any pre-saved message.
    • Why not take this opportunity to make sure your message library is up to date to simplify future emergency or urgent message sends?
