There are three default types of notifications members can receive for a Broadcast:

There are two additional notification types that must be enabled on the platform before they are available for selection:
- SMS text message
- Facebook Messenger
noteSMS text notifications require Twilio account integration.
cautionEven if the SMS text and Facebook Messenger notification types are enabled on the platform, members must opt into receiving these types of notifications on their own platforms before they can receive them. Refer to this article in the Member Guide to show members how to enable these notification types.
You can pre-populate your broadcast with a post that you’d like to be included. To do so:
