I want to send out a bulk sms asking for evaluation of our event, to the participant of the event, the day after the event.

I then thought of creating a smart group of those contact with the participant status 'attended' to my event. And then schedule a bulk sms to that smart group.

But it doesn't seem possible to send bulk sms to a smart group.

Is it possible to send bulk sms to a smart group? And if so, how to do that?

(Drupal and CiviCRM 4.4)

  • naive question, but since you didn't specify this, can you pls confirm that Bulk SMS work for Standard Groups on your site.

You don't say what version of CiviCRM you are on.

I am sure you can do this with scheduled reminders in 4.6 or 4.7 provided you have an SMS gateway configured. See http://docs.civicrm.org/user/en/stable/sms-text-messaging/set-up/ and http://docs.civicrm.org/user/en/stable/email/scheduled-reminders/

You won't need a smart group as once you have selected the event you can specify which participant statuses are sent the SMS.

  • I am on 4.4. I need to send the sms at a specific time, so that everyone gets it at the same time
