Q: Where can I see the current number of subscribed contacts?

Navigate to Contacts > SMS Contacts > SMS Lists. The number of subscribed contacts, to date, will be listed under the Subscribers column. If you have multiple lists, you will need to add the numbers together for a grand total. However, a contact can live on multiple lists, so the grand total could be skewed.

Q: Can I add more than one link to a text message?

Yes, more than one link can be added. Listrak tracks conversations when the user clicks through any link in the text message.

⚠️ The exception is when you want to display a link preview. It only works if there is ONE link in the message.

Q: Why are there asterisks before and after the link in a text message?

These are added to prevent a link preview from displaying.
