Sending messages via SFTP

To send messages in bulk, you must prepare a CSV file where each column, in addition to recipient and language, represents a value corresponding to the campaign’s template parameter.

The examples below is based on the following campaign template:

The campaign template is configured on the admin portal during campaign creation.

Please refer to create message on more information on creating a message on the admin portal.

Example campaign template

This is to inform you that we have received your request for {{topic}}.

We will contact you again when we have processed your request. Thank you.
