Introduction

The SMS Outreach Usage report is used to track the number of scheduled and delivered initial SMS notifications sent out from Outreach Programs. This allows institutions to view the volume of SMS notifications sent on a per user basis within the given time frame. SMS Outreach Usage can be access within the Reports page by Admin Users.


Please note that this report only determines the count of initial SMS notifications sent from Outreaches - this does not include a count of any additional SMS messages communicated between the student and VirtualAdvisor or between the student and advisor.
