Allow manual text messages to be sent out. This way we can communicate more than just auction notifications
We have used other platforms that allow text messages as well as email communications to be sent from the platform. We can set up manual communication texts (Don't miss out, invites, and other communications) as well as automatic (outbid, bidding closed, etc).

I agree - this is a huge miss for RSA! I was shocked when I figured out there is not the ability to send out texts to bidders. Last year we used a system that did. We sent out messages to let folks know when the bidding opened, warnings when the auction was about to close, reminders to get raffle tickets, requests to fund a need and more.
Our former platform allowed us to send messages to bidders throughout the event. This is a huge miss for Ready Set Auction and needs to be added! These texts always served as great calls to action. The outbid reminder texts to bidders are not enough.
Yes, we would really like to see this for our event because we had to cancel and go completely virtual.
Please, Please, Please add text messaging! With everything now going virtual it is needed more than ever. Emails get lost, texting stands out.
