Contents of SMS news alerts

If SMS Alerts are enabled for a particular category, end users can subscribe to receive text message alerts whenever a new message is posted to that category in News Manager.

The contents of these text messages will include the "Title" and the "Summary" of a news post; the body text will not be included. This is because text messages are limited to 160 characters, and the Summary content is more likely to be short enough that it will still make sense and give the recipient a sense of what the message is about, whereas the Body content might include additional, less relevant information. Additionally, Body content can be formatted with HTML, which cannot be sent via text message.
