What are Triggers and how do I use them?

A Trigger will allow you to send an SMS text message, Voice Broadcast or Ringless Voicemail message via an HTTP Post from your custom application, or in most cases by integrating it into a platform like Infusionsoft, ActiveCampaign, HubSpot, or other similar systems.

For example, if you want to send a text message when an order fails from your Infusionsoft application, we would suggest using a Trigger message.

Triggers allow you to send one-off messages to a particular phone number.

 

How To Create a Trigger Message

To create a Trigger message, go to Messages > Triggers, and create your Trigger.
