How to create contact lists with TextMagic?

The easiest and most effective way of organising contacts is by grouping them into SMS lists. Sending text messages to contact lists is easier than adding each contact manually. Here’s how you can create your own SMS lists and send bulk SMS messages using TextMagic:

Step #1: Log in to your TextMagic account or register for the free fully functional trial.

Step #2: Go to Contacts from the dashboard and click on New List. Give a name to your list. You can tick the option below to make the list private or share it with your team members. Click Save.

Step #3: Every time you add a contact to your address book manually, you will also be asked to assign it to a list.
Importing Contacts will save you a lot of time and effort. TextMagic allows you to import Excel/CSV files and to paste numbers from your clipboard. After you make all the necessary settings, you will be asked to select a list where you want your contacts to be added and begin the importing session.

How many contact lists am I allowed to create?

You can create as many marketing contact lists as you need. However, creating too many lists can become very confusing. We advise you to use a maximum of 20 SMS lists for marketing and work processes.

How many types of lists are there?

There are three types of SMS lists that you can use:

  • Private contact lists can be used only by the person who created them and does not wish to share them with team members.
  • Lists that you have created and shared with your team members.
  • Lists that a team member has created and is sharing with you.

Note: Anyone can edit the shared list.

How can I send text messages to my contact lists?

Easy! You can use the New Message page to instantly send bulk SMS messages to your contact list. All you have to do is to insert the SMS list into the To field.

How can I delete a SMS list?

Navigate to the Contacts -> Lists tab. Click on the grey wheel icon and select Delete List from the options. Please keep in mind that all contacts pertaining to your deleted lists will also be permanently erased.

How can I change the privacy settings of my contact list?

Click the grey wheel icon in the Contacts -> Lists tab. If the list is shared, select Make this list private. If the list is private, select Share this list with sub-accounts. You can also hide lists that you no longer need.

Can I edit my contact list?

You can edit the name and privacy of your contacts list using the Edit list option. If you want to edit the contacts in your list, simply click on its name. You will be redirected to the list’s contact page. Here you can add, edit or remove contacts in bulk or one by one.
