Sending SMS using Twilio Messaging Services

    I've been able to send SMS via Twilio when sending From a valid phone number, however, I am needing to send SMS using Messaging Services (a pool of numbers). To do so via Twilio's API requires you to define the SID of the messaging service when sending the message.

    Is there a method of doing this within TA? Or would this need to be a feature enhancement?

        Hi Chris,

        We will add an option to the regular Twilio SMS action to use MessageServiceSid instead of a From number. This will be in the next update.

        Note: You can also use the regular HTTP Post action to make a post to any of the Twilio API's.

        Thanks
        Stephen
