FrontlineSMS Help

This is an web-based version of the User Guide which comes when you download your copy of FrontlineSMS. It has been published online to allow non-FrontlineSMS users to see how it works, and to get a sense of the kind of functionality available. Non-profit organisations wishing to use FrontlineSMS in their work should complete the Request Download form on the FrontlineSMS website

In the FrontlineSMS application, Help is available through the main Help menu along the top of the FrontlineSMS screen. Specific help is also available on each individual FrontlineSMS module by clicking on the icon on the relevant screen
