TRUST YOU CAN HELP ME, THANKS AND WAITING YOUR REPLY
I am afraid the feature you are asking about is not currently available as the only text service I know of that can send text message to the number you have set whenever someone submits your form is one of our app called JotText.
However, the specified feature you wanted to achieve is available via email not a text message.
You can achieve this by using Unique ID field on your form under Power tools. This will send a code to your user to the email they input and provide them a unique code like a unique reference number.
1. Drag the Unique ID field to add this to your form and
2. You can edit the prefix according to your preference on top panel properties.
This is hidden in the form. However, you can show the Unique ID at the Thank you page after submission.
To do that you need to add the tag of the Unique ID field on the Thank you page template.
You can find the tag under the Field properties.
Then the properties window will show up. You need to copy the name tag of the field.
Then Close the window and proceed to your thank you page configuration.
a. Click Setup & Embed
b. Thank you
c. Thank you Message
d. Click next.
Now the thank you message will pop-out, from here you can edit the thank you message that your user will see. Now paste the Name tag anywhere you want and add message according to your preference.
You can also simply click the Form fields on the right to add the value input to the thank you page.
Now your user will see a unique ID upon submission.
And for them to automatically receive an email after submission with the Unique code, you need to configure your Auto-responder Email.
To be able to add autoresponder email to your form, kindly follow the steps below.
1. Click Setup & Embed
2. Email Alerts
2. Add New Email
Then add, Auto Responder and click Next.
Then the window of Autoresponder will show.
You can choose "noreply@" emails for the sender email, and Put your name under "Sender Name".
Then Click Next.
This window is the template of the Email that the user will recieve. Feel free to change the format and add some texts according to your requirements.
Now once you are done hit Finish.
You should now be able to send email confirmation to your users once they submit your form. And from there they will receive the code.
You can try an actual submission to test the Auto-responder email.
Feel free to let us know if you have further questions or inquiry.
Thank you. :)
