How To: Send an SMS notification to a customer

If you have a phone number entered for "SMS phone" and their carrier selected in "SMS Carrier" on the customer's record then you will be able to send an SMS text notification/alert from a repair ticket to update the customer on the repair progress.

To set up an SMS notification, go to Location Settings, then Communications, then Notifications. There, you can "Create Notification Automation" or edit a pre-existing SMS notification.

Once an SMS Notification is setup, you can send it within a ticket. To do this, click the SMS Notification button (the one with the bell icon) on the ticket view screen.

    Yazan,

    You will need to sign up for an account with Twilio in order to send international SMS messages. You can learn more here https://repairq.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/206361968-Twilio-Integration

    I have emailed you this information via a Support ticket so feel free to follow up through that email.
