Important: There are two types of automations: marketing and non-marketing. In the non-marketing report, the data displayed will be limited to Total Messages, Total Spent, Sent and Failed statuses. The visual bar graph will also appear, as well as the Last Messages that were sent.



Reviewing Your Messages


Look over the messages you have sent during the time a specific automation was active. The chart will display:

  • Date: The date the automation was activated.

  • Text: Click on Show message to display the message and Hide message to hide it.

  • Price: The price of the message sent through the automation.

  • Status: The status of the message can either be sent, failed, rejected, blocked, or landline. When a message has attempted to be sent to a landline number it will remain undelivered. You will be charged for it but refunded shortly after as the message was not sent.
