Brandibble sends out a variety of notification emails (order confirmations, unconfirmed orders alerts, setting change alerts, etc.), and you may be asking yourself: how do I receive these notifications via text message?

It turns out that most cellular carriers (Verizon, AT&T, etc.) allow you to email text messages to the telephone numbers of their customers, so it's just a matter of plugging the correct "email-to-text" email address into the relevant email fields in the Brandibble Admin Interface.

For instance, with Verizon, you can email a text message to any of their subscribers by adding "vtext.com" to the end of the subscriber's phone number, as in: "5551234567@vtext.com".  So if your employee's phone number happens to be 555-123-4567, you would just add "5551234567@vtext.com" to the "Notification Email Addresses" field on each location's "Order Settings" page (Locations > choose location > Order Settings).

Here's a list of the email address formats for each of the major cell phone companies:

Verizon: 5551234567@vtext.com
AT&T: 5551234567@txt.att.net
Sprint: 5551234567@messaging.sprintpcs.com
T-Mobile: 5551234567@tmomail.net
Boost Mobile: 5551234567@myboostmobile.com
US Cellular: 5551234567@email.uscc.net
Alltel: 5551234567@message.alltel.com
Cricket: 5551234567@mms.mycricket.com
Nextel: 5551234567@messaging.nextel.com
VoiceStream: 5551234567@voicestream.net
Virgin: 5551234567@vmobl.com

If your cell phone company isn't listed there, you can find a more complete list here: Email To SMS Email Address List.

So that's it - all you have to do is add your employee's email-to-text email address to an email address field on Brandibble, and they'll receive a text message any time a notification email gets sent out.
