    Hi Vivik,

    You can use Webhook to achieve that, but you have to write a custom script in order to fire up the SMS when the form is submitted. Don't you worry, you can try my sample script. Follow these steps.

    1. Copy this script: http://pastiebin.com/5253dd650f070

    2. Change the value like username, pass and sender on the script.

    3. Save it as PHP file (with .php extension e.g. sms.php)

    4. Upload that PHP file to your server

    5. Get the PHP file URL and set it as your Form Webhook. Guide: Creating your first Webhook with JotForm

    Let us know if you encounter any issues. Thanks!

    Not sure how this works, I would be totally interested in figuring this out. I've uploaded a new file called sms.php to my server and changed the username, pass, and sender. Now how do I get a notification to send to the mobile number specified in my form?

    Hello poopselfie,

    You need to grab the file url of sms.php and set it up as your webhook. It will fire the php code when your form is submitted. The following guide should help you:  http://www.jotform.me/help/245-Creating-your-first-Webhook-with-JotForm

    DO get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!

    Not sure what I'm doing wrong, ashwin_d,

    Probably something so simple.

    Just to make things clear; "user" and "password" are my jotfrom username and password?

    //Create the SMS URL

    $url = 'https://control.msg91.com/sendhttp.php?' . http_build_query(array(

        'user' => "12345",

        'password' => "your pass here",

        'mobiles' => $mobile,

        'message' => $message,

        'sender' => "your sender here",

        'name' => $name,

    ///... continue

    ));

    and "mobiles" "message" "sender" and "name" are whatever variables I have set in my form for those inputs?

     

    My apologies again, I am just trying to make this go smoothly.

    Hello poopselfie,

    If I am not wrong, the user name and password should be the login credentials of your msg91.com account. If you have not signed up already, please use the following URL to sign up for an account: http://www.msg91.com

    Rest of the information seems to be correct.

    Do test and get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!

    Answered by david on July 18, 2014 at 11:51 AM

    Hi,

    The mobile number would be grabbed from the form form.  If you look in the script, the variable $mobile is mapped to the field "q4_mobile" which would relate to the 4th field in the form labeled "mobile".  You would not be entering anything in the script as this is where it gets the mobile number to send the text to.

    Please let us know if you have any other questions and we will be happy to help.

    Thank you for using Jotform!

    Hello sodesignin,

    I am not sure if I have understood the workflow you your requirement. Are you reading the mobile number value form your form or you are hard coding your mobile number in your script, the syntax you mentioned above seems to be not correct:

    $mobile = $obj['here i entered my mobile number']; //mobile - If you input your mobile number between the '' here, the script will look for a variable / field name as your mobile number.

    If you are hard coding your mobile number you can replace the above line in your script with the following code :

    $mobile = "Input your mobile number here"; //mobile

     

    Or you can also directly input your mobile number where you are creating SMS URL in your script:

    //Create the SMS URL

    $url = 'http://smshorizon.co.in/api/sendsms.php?' . http_build_query(array(

        'user' => "My username ",

       'password' => "My password",

        'mobiles' => "Input your mobile number here",

        'message' => $message,

        'sender' => "WEBSIT", 

        'name' => $name,

    ///... continue

    ));

    Try this out and get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!

    Hello tlwbangalore,

    I did check the code shared by my colleague. This is a very old thread and it seems the "rawRequest" is deprecated.

    I am not a PHP programmer but if I understand the code correctly, the rawRequest was used to get all the post data form your form. Please check the following URL on how to read the post data:  http://php.net/manual/en/reserved.variables.httprawpostdata.php 

    Hope this helps.

    I have also asked my colleague @EltonChris to look into this thread.

    Thank you!

    Hi,

    Please, make sure you have integrated your form with Webhooks, then you may follow the example on this link.

    Then you should get the correct info for the API.

    You should replace that info on the code that is provided on the link I shared above, on this script.
