TOPIC: send sms to a mobile phone

send sms to a mobile phone 2 years 5 months ago #104826

I know this is crazy. But can we send a text message (sms) to a mobile phone through limesurvey 2.05+ (with latest updates)?? If we can do this, we would be able to tell the respondents to check their spam box too. Or remind them.

For this you would need a external program/service that can be triggered. But Limesurvey does not offer this.

I think Twilio offers something like this: www.twilio.com/docs/quickstart/php/sms/sending-via-rest
Have a look at the manual! It is a really valuable source for information. Here some helpful links:

That Twilio link looks interesting. Has anyone ever given it a try?

So Denis, are you suggesting a plugin would need to be created, or could existing LS API functionality make it work (forgive my developer naivate).

I'm trying to wrap my head around the workflow of using SMS to invite (or most likely confirm) participation in a research study.

LimeSurvey have all to replace email token send. After you must do the PHP script to call other service API, before using default LimeSUrvey system.

I have just given messagebird a try. Piece of cake, using curl or PHP:
www.messagebird.com/developers/curl#messaging-send
www.messagebird.com/developers/php#messaging-send

www.messagebird.com/app/en/sign-up gives you 9 free test messages to your own mobile number.
