Pushing a list from VAN

There are two options for importing a list of contacts from VAN to ThruText; "pushing" and "pulling" using the External Contact List section under the Groups sidebar. This article explains how to "push" VAN contact lists into your ThruText account via the "SMS" button in your VAN committee.

NOTE - ThruTalk lists of contacts can only be imported via the pulling method at this time.
