Inbox Types and Differences
Each Cadence user can have their own personal Cadence number, be a member of a Shared Inbox, or both! Administrators can also be numberless, meaning they cannot text but can manage other aspects of their Cadence team.
Click here to learn more about Shared Inboxes.
Sending a Text Message
Send a text to an existing contact. Use templates, merge fields, and MMS to personalize your message.

Sending a Mass Text Message (Segments)
Send a text to a group of contacts, organized into what we call Segments; created based on custom data points or from an existing list of IDs or phone numbers.
Click here to learn more about Segments.
Managing Replies and Viewing Conversations
Once your message is sent, any replies will come into the inbox from where the message was sent. To learn more about replying to messages, viewing if a message was sent successfully, and searching past conversations, click here.
What if the person I need to text doesn’t exist in Cadence?
- Before sending a new text, that person needs to be added to Cadence as a contact.
For information on adding a single contact, click here.
- Administrators also have the ability to load contacts in bulk through a file import.
Click here for detailed instructions on the manual data import process, or reach out to your Client Success Lead for a hands-on training!
