Assigning User Permissions

In order to take advantage of the different texting features available, your users will need to have the correct permissions in the system. We recommend first determining which users you want to have these permissions before assigning them. 

  1. Navigate to B for Beyond menu in the upper left
  2. Select System Settings > Security Groups
  3. Select Permission category
  4. Either: 
    • Add users to any group that already has this permission OR
    • Create a new group with the Can Text permission checked and add users to it (remember that users can only be part of one permissions group and will inherit all the permissions that you check.

*Note* Users will also need to be apart of a message action security type to see the messages on employee records.

Setting Up an Admin Account

For Text-Em-All to work in your system, an administrator will need to add an account under system settings. This ensures users can add their own accounts and messages can be logged correctly on records. Only one account needs to be set up here. 

To Set Up an Admin Account: 

  1. Navigate to B for Beyond > System Settings
  2. Select External Services > Texting 
  3. Select the + to add a new account
  4. Enter the following: 
    • Username: Enter your Text-Em-All username
    • Pin: Enter your Text-Em-All Password (PIN)
  5. Select Submit 
    • The system will automatically check with Text-Em-All to ensure credentials are correct before closing 

You can always test your credentials to check that Text-Em-All is up and running and your credentials entered are still accurate by selecting the test button on the saved credentials.

A green check mark lets you know if your credentials are valid:

Adding a User Account

Each user that wants to use the Text-Em-All features will need to have their own log in to Text-Em-All entered into Beyond. 

  1. Navigate to B for Beyond > User Settings
  2. Select Texting on the left 
  3. Select the + in the upper right
  4. Select Text-Em-All as the provider
