New Feature: Subaccounts

We wanted to introduce a major new feature in Clearstream: subaccounts. If you have ministries that are large enough to need their own account, or if your church has multiple locations, subaccounts are a great option. You can create separate accounts under your main (we'll call it master) account, but still have one monthly plan with Clearstream. New subaccounts can be created within a few seconds right from your master account.

Android App Available in the Google Play Store

You can now download the Clearstream Android App in the Google Play store. As with our iOS app, it’s free to download and use if you have a Clearstream account. If you don’t yet have a Clearstream account, but are looking for the best SMS software available (no, really), you can quickly create an account here. Our Android and iOS apps let you manage your organization's SMS communications on the go.

Short Codes vs. Long Codes

If you use a texting software, you're sending messages from a short code, long code, or both. So, which texting number is best? The answer is conditional, and unique to each church's particular use cases and budget.

Automated Keyword Workflows for Guest Follow-Up

Messaging sequences that are triggered when a user texts a specific keyword inside of your account. For example, first-time guests can text "ImNew" to 97000 to fill out a digital connect card. Then they will receive several messages throughout the week inviting them back the following Sunday.
