10DLC Campaign Review Checklist

When creating new campaigns, please review the following Checklist:


Campaign Description:

  • The campaign description should explain who the entity using the campaign is and what the campaign is intended for.

    • Ex: Appointment reminder and confirmation notifications for a dentist’s office to remind their patients of newly scheduled and upcoming appointments date and times.


Message Flow:

  • The Message flow must provide explicit information as to how the end user opts in to receive messaging traffic before the first message is sent.

    • If there is an opt in form on the website, please provide the link to the specific page where opt in is gathered.

    • Optional, but recommended, add in a picture (for example a publicly accessible google drive link to an uploaded image) of where the opt in happens.

    • Please include a link to the privacy policy.

      • Ex: Patient’s click “Book an appointment” on, then there is an sms opt in form which communicates clearly the purpose, frequency, and terms of joining this campaign. It is not required to accept sms notifications to submit the form.
