Is there a MobileConnect configuration guide/best-practices document somewhere?

Hello trailblazers!

I'm trying to track down some documentation to help us configure a new MobileConnect instance.  The help.marketingcloud.com pages have a bit of information on using the tool once it is configured, but I'm looking for documentation and/or a workbook to help us configure MobileConnect.  Anyone have any resources that might help?

I was able to find this link, it has getting started and account administration, importing contacts and creating and managing messaging - https://help.marketingcloud.com/en/documentation/mobileconnect/getting_started_with_mobileconnect/

Thanks, Nicole!  That's all I've been able to find too--just the very basic documentation on the help.marketingcloud.com pages.  Was hoping for a configuration workbook or something along those lines.  I appreciate your input!

One year later this topic remains relevant, I would also apreciate some deep documentation of MobileConnect

I agree, the documentation is (as per the usual level of SFMC documentation) very light, not helpful and is ambiguously worded. There's not any useful content in Trailhead, either.

Salesforce, in an age where you're promoting multi-channel marketing and the rise of the multi-device/mobile user, MobileConnect should be one of your most promoted and most supported tools. PLEASE update the documation for 2019 asap, with use cases and best practices around using MobileConnect with Contact Builder and sending to DEs.
