Recent changes and new features added to MojoTxt:

Release DateChange TypeDescription
5/30/2023UpdateWe made some updates which make it harder to accidentally send duplicate messages. Going forward, you will receive an error message if you try to schedule an identical message within 5 minutes of the original message. Additionally, delivery to a recipient will fail (without credit usage) if an identical message is sent within 60 seconds.
4/5/2023UpdateWe've fixed a bug which caused some subscriber imports to hang indefinitely.
4/5/2023UpdateWe've added a Message Log endpoint to our API.
1/28/2023UpdateWe updated the notification system for new messages to increase reliability and speed. You'll now receive notifications about new messages within 5-7 seconds of receiving the message. (Why any delay at all? Because we want to avoid sending unnecessary notifications in case you happen to be reading that conversation in your web browser when the message comes in.)
5/3/2022FeatureYou can now block messages from being sent to your number by unwanted (spam) senders. Just open the sender's profile, then choose "Block Person" from the Actions menu.
4/28/2022UpdateWe added support for the new Tollfree Verification process which will soon be required by all carriers.
10/7/2021UpdateWe made some speed improvements to the Conversations page. This should be especially noticeable for customers who have a large number of open conversations.
8/25/2021FeatureWe've added support for mobile carrier registration via The Campaign Registry. Once registered, MojoTxt customers using local numbers can experience faster and more reliable message delivery. Learn more here.
3/31/2021UpdateWe fixed a bug with our new message composition box that was causing "&" characters to be replaced with "&" when sending messages.
  • We added a new mobile-friendly date & time selector throughout MojoTxt.
  • We updated our message composition box a bit so that it will no longer cut-off messages that exceed the character limit of an SMS message. Instead, it will simply highlight the portion of the message that is too long so that you can edit the message more easily.
11/18/2020UpdateWe're releasing a few great changes to MojoTxt today!
  • We updated the look of MojoTxt on all platforms.
  • We improved the mobile navigation experience. 
  • We introduced a new "full screen" view for conversations which makes better use of the available screen space on both desktop and mobile. 
  • We added a "stay logged-in on this device" checkbox to our login page.
5/4/2020FeatureHave you ever wanted to send yourself a copy of a message before you send it to your list? If so, then today's your lucky day! Try out the new "Send Test Message" button when you're composing your next message. 
4/11/2020UpdateYou can now change the keyword of any existing list, responder, donation, or daily program.
3/20/2020UpdateWe have increased our capacity in response to unusually high outbound messaging due to Coronavirus-related text messaging. This includes more server capacity as well as some under-the-hood enhancements to our messaging engine which should improve application performance overall. As part of this update, we are now fully disabling the use of our legacy High Capacity Mode feature. 
2/19/2020UpdateDue to a change in carrier policies, we are no longer recommending the use of our High Capacity Mode feature and have added warnings to the UI to inform customers that they should switch to a dedicated toll-free number.
10/16/2019UpdateWe are now able to offer MMS messaging on all newly-created toll-free numbers. We plan to enable MMS on all existing toll-free numbers soon. Please reach out to our support team if this feature is a priority for you, and we will manually transition your number.
10/10/2019FeatureYou can now log-into MojoTxt with your Google account.
10/5/2019UpdateWhile we weren't able to restore the original scripture embedding API, you can now embed ESV version passages in your Daily Programs by linking your MojoTxt account to a free ESV API account.
9/23/2019UpdateOur upstream carrier partner notified us today that they are no longer offering MMS support on new toll-free numbers. This may not be a permanent change, but for the time being, newly-created toll-free numbers will not be MMS capable.
9/22/2019UpdateYou can now begin a new conversation directly from the Conversations page. We also added an easy way to search for people by name or phone number throughout the app.
9/22/2019FeatureMMS (picture) messaging is now available to customers using our legacy High Capacity Mode feature!
5/22/2019FeatureWe're now offering MMS (picture) messaging on all new toll-free numbers. (See update on 9/23/2019.)
4/24/2019UpdateWe've made a few changes to our donation features to make it easier for people to make donations via text:
  1. If someone types in a number/amount without first specifying a donation keyword, the system will now recognize their message as a donation request.
  2. If someone texts-in the generic keywords GIVE or DONATE, the system will guide them through the process of choosing a fund and specifying an amount. 
  3. The system now properly recognizes donation requests when information is sent in a nonstandard order, or when extra information is present in the request. 
3/7/2019UpdateWe updated our donation acceptance system to help you maintain the highest level of security and PCI compliance. The portions of the web pages that collect credit/bank account info are now served from an isolated PCI-compliant hosting environment – all credit card information is (and always has been) submitted directly from your donors to your payment service, without flowing through our platform in any way. We've tested the new pages thoroughly on multiple devices, but if you encounter any issues, please let us know right away.
2/19/2019UpdateWe released a number of small user interface enhancements and bug fixes today. We're also replacing our High Capacity Mode feature with the ability to use a dedicated toll-free number for high volume message sending. Existing customers may continue to use High Capacity Mode without interruption, but the option will no longer be available to people who aren't already using the feature. 
12/31/2018FeatureHappy new year!  Today we added a couple of new link attachment types for outgoing messages: You can now compose and attach HTML messages (containing unlimited amounts of text, videos, images, and file attachments) that can be viewed mobile browsers. You can also send a settings link to request that your subscribers add or update their contact information.
12/28/2018FeatureWe've added a new "Auto-Unsubscribe" feature that can automatically unsubscribe people who aren't able to receive your messages. You can activate the feature from your phone number's Settings page. We also added a way for you to view the carrier delivery status for all outgoing messages from the Message Log and from any Subscription List's delivery report.
11/16/2018UpdateWe've made some network changes that will allow us to make all incoming SMS messages free!  All of our customers can now receive SMS messages without using any message credits (MMS messages still cost 1 credit to receive).
4/12/2018UpdateWe added some context-sensitive warning messages to let customers know when they are about to send a message that is very likely to be blocked as spam by mobile carriers.
1/31/2018UpdateOur messaging engine will now ignore incoming "I'm driving right now" messages. The messages will still be visible in your Message Log, but they will no longer trigger the start of a new conversation or cause an error message to be sent in reply.
12/30/2017FeatureIf someone begins making a donation but doesn't complete it within an hour, MojoTxt will now send a reminder text asking them to finish the donation.
12/30/2017UpdateWhen using High Capacity Mode, MojoTxt will now include your organization name and unsubscribe instructions when people receive a message from an overflow number for the first time.  This update was made to reduce confusion for people who aren't expecting to receive your message on a new number. 
12/18/2017FeatureWe added a light feature to Daily Programs that allows you to automatically subscribe people to a Subscription List when they join your Daily Program.
11/29/2017FeatureWe added guided tours to the help menu for Subscription Lists, Donations, and Conversations to help new customers get acquainted with MojoTxt a little more quickly.
11/6/2017FeatureWe added a brand new user settings page where people can manage their own contact information, subscription preferences, and donations.  Along with this page come a number of built-in keywords to access the settings page, and changes to the functionality of some existing built-in keywords.
10/24/2017FeatureWe added some big updates to the People page that let you import/export people, group people with tags, send messages to any number of individual recipients, and more. We also renamed our relative-time sending feature to "Automations".
10/11/2017UpdateWe updated our Stripe integration to collect credit card data using the Stripe Elements API. (This was a required update to maintain PCI compliance.) If you're using Stripe as your payment service, you'll notice a different appearance of the credit card entry page during the donation process.
8/8/2017UpdateWe updated the look of MojoTxt's mobile web pages to match the look of the rest of our application. We also changed the name of the "User Interface" page to "Branding".
6/23/2017FeatureWe added a feature that lets you schedule list messages relative to the date a person subscribes to the list. You can use this feature to create a series of messages that send automatically at certain time intervals after a person subscribes to your list.
6/15/2017UpdateThe "Subscribers" page has now become the "People" page. Because subscribers are people too. ☺️ (And also because new customers found this confusing.)
