How to use merge fields in message templates in the WinSMS desktop client

WinSMS desktop client message templates and merged fields



In this sample, we are going to use the first name as a merge field. In order not to get the merge field format wrong we are going to type the message in the WinSMS desktop client message box.

Open the WinSMS desktop client. 



Click in the message box along the bottom of the WinSMS desktop client. 



During typing this message we are going to be using the “Merge” button above the message box. Please remember to put spaces before and/or after your merged field. So we are going to type  “Hi  ‘Click on Merge – First Name‘, thank you for attending our seminar - The Seminar Company - 0xx xxxx xxxx” The SMS message should look like this “Hi  , thank you for attending our seminar - The Seminar Company - 0xx xxxx xxxx" Now we are going to copy the message and paste it into a template. Highlight the message then right click on the message (Make sure you do not right click on text underlined in red as this will pop up with the spelling submenu if you have the spell checker enabled) and left click on copy. 



Click on "File" then "Preferences" 



Click on the "Templates" tab 



Click on "Add" 



Right click in the Add Templates text box and left click paste. 



Then click "OK" 



Congratulations you have created a template with merge fields.
