3. New Feature – 2FA Implemented for Administration Portal

  • Issue Summary: TeamTexter support was using whitelisted IP addresses for controlled access to the Administration Portal. When having an internet outage, there was no way to access the Administration Portal to provide customer support while using an alternative internet connection.
  • Resolution: IP whitelisting was eliminated and Google Authenticator 2FA was implemented and required for all Administrators.
  • Impacts: All TeamTexter Administrators (Support) must register for 2FA to be able to login.


4. New Feature – New Company Visible Name Feature

  • Issue Summary: When a recipient received a text from TeamTexter, it would be prefaced with the Company Code selected when the TeamTexter account was set up. i.e. dunder.  Some companies wanted the ability to have text messages show that they came from a different name. i.e. Dunder Mifflin
  • Resolution: A new field found under Administration>Account can be found and used to show a different Company Visible Name rather than the Company Code. If no Company Visible Name is entered, it will default to the Company Code shown on text messages.
  • Impacts: If the Company Visible Name field is completed, that text will show on text messages sent out after the change.
