    How to send SMS message when notifier is sent?

    Asked by creshjho on February 13, 2017 at 07:56 AM

    Hi I would like to know. Is is possible for the person submitting the form to receive a sms saying thank you.

    The  form already has mobile number field. I just need some idea on how can he receive an sms if he clicks on submit button on the form.


    Thank You for your help.

    Hello Asif,

    I tried to open your PHP file but I couldn't:

    Basically, you have to create a PHP page and store it on your own server, then that file's URL you put in Webhooks integration. What is also important is that you have to place your SMS service provider API information in that PHP script. It would help if you share from which form you want to send the SMS and the PHP file you created.

    We'll wait for your response.

    Thank you!

    Although I cannot examine the PHP code that you are using, I can point you to the Webhook PHP script examples guide that my colleague mentioned: https://www.jotform.com/help/248-Webhook-PHP-Script-Examples where there is a section named "2. SMS Notification - Send SMS after form submission using your SMS Provider's API." with an example in it.

    If you need further assistance please let us know. We will be happy to help. Thank you.
