Send SMS Block

Tip
For an example of how this block could be used, see How To Automate an SMS Response to a Customer Call.

Use this block to send an Short Message Service (SMS) message created with the Create SMS block. This version of Composer supports native SMS, which means that the SMS message is sent via SMS Server and not via an e-mail to SMS gateway.

Important
The Send SMS block should only be used if the interaction queue (Create SMS block) property is set. If this property is not set, the Orchestration platform will automatically send the SMS via an internal Orchestration queue, and therefore the Send SMS block is not needed.

For the Create Email, Email Forward, Email Response, Send Email, Chat Transcript, and CreateSMS blocks, Orchestration Server does not copy User Data from any Interaction into an outgoing ESP request. Currently there is no attribute support to overwrite this behavior. If User Data must be included as part of the above blocks, use External Service blocks or SCXML State blocks to directly call the ESP methods (\\CFGEmailServer\\Email\\Forward and \\CFGEmailServer\\Email\\Send).

The Send E-mail block has the following properties:
