I have several hundred potential clients in Trello. I would like to send a text message to these potential clients. is there any way of doing this.
Otherwise I have to put them all into my contacts and retype all their information into my phone in order to send them a text message.
I guess it depends on how your client info is organized. Are there cards with their phone numbers? Or do you mean your clients have Trello accounts?
The only way to send an actual text message though would be to either use twilio: https://zapier.com/apps/trello/integrations/twilio
or sometimes you can text a phone number by emailing email@example.com (but it’s different for each provider)
Welcome to the Community!
@Michael Pryor's answer is spot on, but if you want to be able to text people in the normal fashion, you might like to connect your Trello with Google Contacts. You can use Zapier for that https://zapier.com/apps/google-contacts/integrations/trello if you wanted to add contacts from Trello, you could try this out https://zapier.com/sign-up/?next=%2Fapp%2Feditor%2Ftemplate%2F10632. There are 106 different Trello & Google Contacts integrations, so you might want to have a look around and see if one of those met your needs?
@Dansuds if you are in Australia you could use my product Magic Mobile which turns Trello into a virtual mobile phone:
If you're not in Australia, here is a Trellinator function that would send a txt to cards with mobile number and first name as a custom field value using Twilio:
