    Hi,

    I'm not quite sure how you sms api gateway works, but I'll list the possibilities that you have to connect your form with an external application:

    Webhook:

    You can send form's HTTP POST notifications to the sms gateway with this technique.

    http://www.jotform.com/help/245-How-to-Setup-Webhook-with-JotForm

    Thank You page and PHP.

    You can send POST data fro JotForm using PHP in custom thank you page

    http://www.jotform.com/help/213-Send-POST-Data-From-JotForm-Using-PHP-in-Custom-Thank-You-Page

    Form's source code:

    You can download your form source code and modify it in order to make it work with the sms gateway.

    http://www.jotform.com/help/104-How-to-get-your-Form-Source-Code

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    At any of this cases you will need programing knowledge, or you can hire a developer in order to make it work.

     

    Thanks

    Hello Chetan3385,

    Are you trying to send this from your php file "http://www.propzonegandhinagar.in/redirect.php"?

    What you should do is pass the message from your form to this redirect.php in query string and read this query string in your php file. Once you have this value you can append that in your SMS gateway url.

    If you need to pass the "Message" text to your custom thank you URL, here is the example:

    http://www.propzonegandhinagar.in/redirect.php?message={message}

    You actually need to know the name of the form fields to be able to read and append in your custom url. Here is a guide which should help you know the field names:  http://www.jotform.com/help/71-Prepopulating-fields-to-your-JotForm-via-URL-parameters

    In the above guide, look for the section "For text boxes, text Area fields, radio buttons, drop down menus:"

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!

    Hello Chetan,

    Are you reading the query string variable and populating the url correctly in your redirect.php?

    If the values are populating in localhost it should work fine in the live page too unless there is some missing parameter values.

    Can you please debug and see that all parameters have values in your gateway URL?

    Thank you!

    Hello chetan3385,

    There is soome confusion here. I gave you the guide link for you to understand how to get your field names.

    Anyway, I am not sure what code you have written in redirect.php but here is your custom thank you URL through which you can read the values in your php file.

    http://www.propzonegandhinagar.in/redirect.php?sendername={name}&mobileno={phoneNumber}&message={message}

    After the form is submitted and user is redirected to this thank you page, you can write php code to read these values of query string. Once you have these values, you know how to pass it to your SMS gateway url.

    Hope this helps you!

    Hi,

    Choose your SMS gateway and just replace your email notification with this. Heres how you can edit your email notification.

    ex. 12345678@aircel.co.in

    Please try this and let us know if this works.

    Thanks,
