    How to send a text message to submitter, like an auto-responder?

    Asked by schung505 on August 17, 2016 at 01:46 PM

    Hi my name is Sharon and I work for Don, a travel agent, 


    I am the project/marketing manager for a travel agent. He needs to use the lead generation form we created at a trade show. What is the best way for that form to be submitted once a person fills it out, immediately send them a text message to their phone (thanking for them for signing up), and

    then have that same form pop up for a new person (lead) to fill, and repeat the process?


    Thank you

    Sharon Chung

    You may use WebHooks to send the email to your submitter, once you've captured the user's data you should pass it to a WebHooks URL where you will process the data and send the email. 

    This guide will help you to integrate your form with WebHooks: How-to-Setup-a-Webhook-with-JotForm

    Here are some examples, including the one to send email from submissions: Webhook-PHP-Script-Examples
