SMS Package Management For institutions to be able to communicate with the students, parents, and employees through Short Message Service (SMS), Fedena must be integrated with a bulk SMS service provider. When configuring SMS settings in Fedena, you can now create SMS packages. An SMS package consists of the following:

  • SMS package details such as the service provider name, message limit, package validity, etc.
  • SMS configuration settings which includes the parameters and their appropriate values

Fedena Clients (Fedena Account Administrators) can create and assign SMS packages to individual schools created under them.

Note: Fedena Clients can no longer allow individual schools to inherit SMS configuration settings (Inherit SMS settings checkbox has been removed). Instead, SMS packages must be assigned.
