The first in a content series around how to get the most out of BuzzBell and become a pro
Learning how to use a new app – or anything new for that matter – takes time, patience, and good, old-fashioned perseverance. But this is 2021, and quite frankly, patience is in limited supply. To help with this, we’ve created a series designed to help you get the most out of BuzzBell so that you can feel like a pro. First up, sending BUZZ and BELL messages!
BuzzBell’s key feature allows you to break through someone’s Silent Mode settings for urgent moments where you need their attention. We know that all messages are not created equal, so we built BuzzBell to reflect that by designing the two alerts to correspond to varying degrees of urgency and importance. Since this feature is unique to BuzzBell, sending a BUZZ or BELL might seem challenging at first, but it’s quite easy!
First, either go into an existing conversation or start a new conversation by clicking on the new message button (+) in the upper right-hand corner of the Messages tab. In this case, either type the name of the person you want to start the chat with in the Search bar or scroll through your Contacts. Either way, simply click the name of your chosen contact, click “Next,” and begin typing your message.
Now comes the fun part: choosing how your message is delivered. In the lower right-hand corner, there is a BB button; clicking this brings up two options, BUZZ and BELL. Clicking either will turn the compose bar into the color of the associated alert – teal for BUZZ, royal blue for BELL. Click the send arrow, and a message prompt will pop up confirming you would like to send your message with a BUZZ or BELL alert. Confirm this by clicking “Send BUZZ” or “Send BELL,” and your message will be sent with your chosen level of urgency/importance. That’s it! Included below is a helpful screen recording to see this in action.
Now you’ll never have to worry that your message will get lost amongst the other notifications and can have confidence that your important messages will stand out. Stay tuned as we explore more tips and tricks to help you become a BuzzBell pro!
