    Hello,


    What is the quickest and easiest way to setup SMS to be sent off once the form is filled.


    Is it possible to also have it sent off on a date scheduled?


    Thank you

    Shannon

    Unfortunately we do not have built in feature to send SMS notifications but with a little workaround it is possible to achieve your requirement. 

    You can use your own service provider's API to send submission SMS and there are multiple ways available to do this:

    #1. You can setup custom PHP thank you page in your form where you can read the submission data and send it in SMS by taking advantage of your SMS api. The following guide should help you:  http://www.jotform.com/help/213-Send-POST-Data-From-JotForm-Using-PHP-in-Custom-Thank-You-Page

    #2. You can also setup webhooks to send POST data which will send submission emails:  http://www.jotform.com/help/245-How-to-Setup-Webhook-with-JotForm 

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you.

    A webhook is a technique used to send HTTP POST notifications to a URL. They can be used to connect apps together or just send data.

    You will need to provide a URL to webhook in order to be notified when there is a form submission. That URL should be able to send SMS messages. You may contact with your SMS provider for webhooks.

    Thank you.
