Trial mode

When you set up a new service it will start in trial mode. This lets you try out GOV.UK Notify, with a few restrictions.

A service in trial mode can only:

  • send 50 text messages and emails per day
  • send messages to you and other people in your team
  • create letter templates, but not send them

To remove these restrictions, you can send us a request to go live.

Before you can request to go live, you must:

  • sign our data sharing and financial agreement
  • accept our terms of use
  • set up your service so you’re ready to send and receive messages

When we receive your request we’ll get back to you within one working day.
