Setting an SMS Connector 

  1. Navigate to the CAWI tab of your survey, select the Distribution sub-tab and click on 'SMS Connectors'
  2. In the following screen, click 'Add a new Connector' and choose the connector Type you would like to setup
    • Twilio- Fill out all the parameters and click 'OK'
      • Connector Name: Define a name to identify the connector
      • API Key: Your Twilio account's Auth Token (2)
      • Account SID: Your Twilio Account SID (1)
      • Phone number, SenderID: Your Twilio phone number or (3)
        Please Note:
        Your Twilio account information can be found from the main console page:
  3. Once the connector is setup choose 'Test Connector'. Enter a phone number and click 'Send Test SMS'

Troubleshooting -

1. SMS not sent - when sending a test connection and it doesn't seem to send:

  1. Check your phone number format. You must include '+' and the country code as well as the full phone number (no parentheses of hyphens)
  2. If using a trial Twilio account, check that the 'To' number is included in your Verified Caller IDs.
    • Please note: Depending on your country, you may not be enabled to receive Twilio verification codes. If you do not receive a verification code for your number, please contact Twilio support in order to verify your number manually.

That's It !
