Enhanced automation options are only available with Dedicated Virtual Mobile Numbers.
1. Select your Dedicated Virtual Mobile Number from the drop down list for the Sender ID
2. Click on the REPLY OPTIONS button
3. Enable the action you would like to trigger by placing a YES next to the following options:
Forward to Mobile:
Enter the mobile number you would like to forward SMS replies to. You can enter multiple mobile numbers separated with commas.
Forward to URL:
This option is used by website developers. Enter the full URL of your application that will handle the response.
Processing responses with your own application is as simple as providing a URL for us to send them to. For more information on response callback URL's please review our API documentation.
Add Number to List:
When you enable the ‘Add Number to List’ option, you will need to either select an existing contact list or select the option to 'Create New List' and then enter the name of your new contact list.
Send an AUTO REPLY when somebody replies to your message. This is simply a message that goes back, usually containing a coupon or thank you message.
LIMIT AUTO RESPONSES by adding a message to the second window. This will send a different message from the second time somebody texts in.
Order of Precedence
The reply options exist in several places in Burst SMS.
If the options are set at the Quick SMS, Send SMS or Keyword screens, they are what is used first.
If any options are not set in those screens, then settings in the Numbers screen will be applied.
