In addition to confirmation e-mails, Lyyti can also send SMS confirmations. This, of course, requires that the participant has given their mobile phone number (and that the mobile phone question is a Standard question). The message is always sent from the number 16130 and it is a one-way number. Replies to that number won't go anywhere, so remember to add your own sender information at the end of the SMS.
SMS confirmations cost the same as normal SMSs sent from Lyyti, which is 0,10 € / SMS. The cost depends on the message length as follows:
- 0-160 characters = 1 message
- 161-306 characters = 2 messages
- 307-459 characters = 3 messages
- 460-612 characters = 4 messages
- 613-765 characters = 5 messages
SMS messages can be personalised in the same way as e-mails, for example:
"Hi %RECEIVER_FIRSTNAME%, which John would receive as "Hi John".
You can find all the personalisation codes just below the SMS field: Personalise your SMS.
Send SMS also to the declined
You can also send a confirmation SMS to the declined (/cancelled) participants, it works the same way as the normal SMS confirmation.
