Twilio integration

    With the new Twilio add-on can you setup multiple recipients to receive form notifications? Can the person submitting the form get copied similar to how it works with the email notifications via SMS?

  2. Currently the SMS is only sent to whoever is configured to receive the notification. It won't send to the user who submitted the form. The Twilio Add-On is still really new so we are always open to ideas and suggestions for adding additional functionality to it in the future.

    so can multiple recipients be alerted? for example 2 admins?

  4. Yes you could send it to 2 admins. You'd have to create two Twilio feeds using the Twiliio Add-On in order to do this.

    Excellent, so can the notification be sent via SMS and email simultaneously? Basically the scenario is I have 2 people (admins) needing to to receive the form notification, one via email or SMS and the other just by email. Is all this possible?

  6. Yes, the admin email notification is built in to Gravity Forms, and the SMS notification (or notifications) would come from the Twilio Add-on. They're completely separate.

  7. I had the same issue, wanted to send messages to the actual user that signed up, seems like a pretty simple feature to implement, don't really understand why it isn't. All i did was add one line of code to twilio.php and modify another line. around line 934 modify the lines to look like this:
    http://pastebin.com/TpkH635c

    then use a merge tag in the to field in your twilio settings.

    note, to the mods, would be great if this could get implemented, so i don't have to use a hacked version of the plugin and risk it being broken when someone hits update.

  8. I'm right in the same boat as Adrian. ALL I want is for the users to be able to input their phone number(s) on my website, and when I get enough phone numbers, I want to be able to send a mass text from my Twilio phone number. It's as simple as that. I just purchased the developers license today...

    Please how can I make this happen??

    Thanks

  9. @oursmartweb What you describe is not what the Twilio Add-On is designed to do. It is strictly for sending an SMS notification to you or whoever you configure it to send to when a form is submitted. It is not designed to send mass text messages, that isn't what it does nor do we market it as having bulk text message functionality.

    The Twilio Add-On does exactly what is described here:

    In the future please do not piggyback off another user's support request. The user that posted this request already had their issue resolved and therefore your reply has a good chance of not being noticed because of this which is exactly what happened. All support requests should be done by creating a new support forum post, not piggybacking on an existing post.

    I have replied to the new support forum post you made here:

    I am closing this thread as the original poster's question was answered.
