Fridays' Swyx Tip #19: Send TXT message

Tom Wellige



From 2009 to 2011 mirjam baumberger wrote a great blog, the "Fridays' Swyx Tip". Every Friday she posted a tip regarding the usage of SwyxWare and connected tools and devices. As the old forum is offline, this article series will be restored here again over the time. Please note that some information in this article series might not be valid anymore with current SwyxWare versions.

Dear Swyx Users


Let's assume you are on a two day training course and therefore very hard to reach via phone or e-mail. Nevertheless SwyxWare can help you to stay in touch with your office.


Similar to Outlooks Out-of-Office assistance, Swyx will handle any calls to your extension as you desire. For example, the caller can leave you a Voicemail, or the call can also be answered by a co-worker. But did you know that Swyx can also inform you via TXT message that caller "XY" is requesting a call back?




You are only two steps away to implement this. Download a small a sample ECR script from here




and configure the parameters accordingly. Secondly sign up for free with the TXT provider clickatell (as shown in the sample ECR script).





Any questions?



Have a good weekend and happy Swyxing...
