    Hello - it would be very helpful if I could use 3CX to mass text everyone in the company, area or group. If our email is down, or if there is an emergency, I could use the 3CX system to communicate with everyone.

    Peter,
    You can do this.
    Go to switchboard users view, select all or group of users, click right button of mouse, select chat.
    Then you will be able to send group message

    No, not chat (or a group message). But a SMS text to a cell phone.

    3CX doesn't even do SMS at all - so this is not just asking for a feature, but an entire communications protocol to be added. Use another system for this.

    I think the idea behind unified communications is just this, unified. I think SMS would be a great add on.

    You could set it via Flow Manager and set for example a webhook to some external SMS services or for example to Telegram that it's free ;-)
