Split test SMS validation errors
Possible split test SMS validation errors and solutions:
|Validation error message||Explanation|
|Campaign content cannot be empty||One or more of your split test versions is empty. Add content to each version.|
|A link must be included in each split test variation||One or more of your split test versions doesn't contain a link. Links are how we report on the effectiveness of your SMS split test, so make sure each version contains a link|
|Ensure all your links have 'http' or 'https' at the beginning||You need to make sure that all of your links are prefixed with the correct Hypertext Transfer Protocol; http:// or https://|
|Sorry you can't paste a platform generated short link into the editor. Please paste the original link you want to send and we will shorten it for all users at the time of send||You can't add already shortened links to your SMS split test versions. Add the full URL for your links, and they are automatically shortened when the SMS is sent.|
