This is the main screen, here you have 3 tabs:

  • Contacts: for managing the list.
  • Send Message: to compose the text of the alert.
  • Settings: to setup the connection to the foxbox.

#2.2: Contacts

In this first tab you can:

Import a list from the sub-section Import file, so specify a delimiter (, ; | etc…) and choose the desired file to import.

Once the file has been imported you can use the “Define column” function to specify in wich column index are the MSISDN to use. Index is showed in the headings of the table. When you press set the desired column will be indicated as “Mobile”.
