User Permissions for Text Messaging

There are several User Permissions related to Text Messaging in Jackrabbit. These permissions allow the User to perform tasks such as sending a text to all families regarding a closure or messaging your staff about an upcoming meeting.

User Permissions play a crucial role in protecting your data by controlling who can access, modify, or perform specific actions in your system.  Review Protect Your Account - User Permission Guidelines for more information.
