Our clients have been asking, and today we’re pleased to announce we’ve rolled out Photo Messaging. This means you can now receive images within Textizen, directly from your respondents’ cell phones.

With Textizen Photo Messaging, case workers in human services can collect important documents from clients without a fax machine or a computer. Planners can ask citizens to text in an image of their favorite street corner or skyline view. And environmental reporting becomes faster, richer, and more accessible, as an illegal dumping site or idling vehicle can be documented in a snap.

Want to learn more about how photos can streamline your workflow, enrich your surveys, or improve your reporting? Get in touch: hello@textizen.com.

New Sending Improvements

Follow-ups, check-ins, and longitudinal research just got a lot easier: This past week, we rolled out several improvements to Textizen’s sending capabilities. These new features allow you to easily send the same poll to new cohorts, or resend past surveys to increase completion rates. You can also setup all your monthly surveys for a research study in advance, or send a weekly check-in to clients.

Canceling or editing scheduled messages is as easy as clicking either icon in the poll editor!
