Choosing the 'From Number'
When creating your SMS message, you have 3 options to choose from to use as your From number:
- From the systems number - responses to SMS messages can be viewed via 'Reports' in your account.
- From your own mobile number - all responses will be sent to your mobile - they will not be available in system reports.
- Text as 'From Number' (e.g. your company name) - no responses can be collected.
