Receiving Text Messages to Your Virtual Number

 

Two-Way Text Messaging allows you to interact with the people receiving messages from your automated systems.
This is highly useful for one-question polls, get status updates, register to events, etc. 
You can either use a dedicated number or a TeleMessage system number.

  1. Purchase your unique mobile number.
    This is included in our $99/month plan). Or Contact us to purchase a number. 
    Or use a FREE shared number

  2. In your SMS settings, configure to get “Replies to Outbound Messages” > “Use a system allocated number (or my personal short/long code). Recipients will be able to reply to these messages, and replies will appear in my Inbox.”

  3. Configure to get statuses, replies and incoming messages routed to:

    • An external URL API – use our forwarding and routing rules. See images below.  
    • You can add an “auto reply” message for people texting you.
    • You can also view/get messages in our web portal.


  4. You can configure a fixed URL in your forwarding preferences as explained above

  5. Once activated, you can also change the URL address for each message using this XML structure of incoming messages.
    This will tell our system that you request for push status.

  6. If you will be sent attachments, you will receive responses in XML format.
