How to Create a New Echo for Email User

If you have multiple members of staff who need the capability to send text messages, you will want to set each of them up as an Echo for Email user. This means that they can send their own messages from their email account, and it also gives Admin users the ability to track usage.

New users are set up by Admin users on the account.

First, click into Echo for Email; this will automatically take you to the users page. Here you will see a list of all existing emails set up to use the account.

This is also where you can add new users. Using the ‘Email address’ text box, enter the new user’s email address and click the green ‘Add’ button.
