Twilio Auto Responder

Hi everyone!

I’m new to Bubble and starting to build out an app for text message marketing.

I’m using a Twilio plug in currently with a Twilio account. What I need the app to do is recieve an incoming message from Twilio, add that number to a list, and send a reply.

If Twilio recieves a reply after that, I want the app to send a predetermined response. Example: If someone replys YES > Send Message A. If someone replys NO > Send message B.

Is there a way to do this with Bubble?

Any help is appreciated.


Hey @richardwcook01,

You can definitely tackle that in Bubble using API Workflows as endpoints. Twilio does have native support to process inbound messages, which you can use to hit your API Workflow to continue next steps. If you’re up for it, our Text Messaging and Calls course goes into both outbound and inbound processing. :slight_smile:

Great! Thanks for that, I’ll definitley take that course.

Before I dive in too far, is there a way that I could pre-screen the number sending the message to us so that they can only get a reply once every 30 days or something like that?

It would basically be an if/then statement.


API Workflows do support the standard Bubble conditions you’re used to, both before and during execution. :wink:
