Twillio 2way SMS

I am having trouble with Twilio messages. I downloaded the plugin from Copilot, added all the keys/SIDs etc. That is as far as I got. I cannot for the life of me figure out next steps. There are no visual elements or input forms from this plugin (or at least I cannot see them). HELP!

@staff There is not much information regarding twilo on the ‘interwebs’ haha. Does anyone have any idea how to get 2way messaging with twilio working?

Thanks!

No need for any visual elements. Use an input form and workflows provided by the plugin.

We have a tutorial for SMS at nocodify.com if you’d like to follow along (one tutorial for sending, another tutorial for receiving)

I just made a step-by-step guide on sending SMS using Twilio. You can also find my Bubble editor so you can copy and paste the frontend elements and backend workflows directly to your app.

I don’t have one for receiving SMS yet. You should check out Nocodify’s tutorial listed above!

Thank you @edtyli9 this is helpful! Please let know once you create one for receiving SMS’s! I’m sure you’ll get a lot of traffic to your website (and many people who’ll want 1on1 help) once you have that created.

I tried to implement this and it is not working. I also tried your live demo and that too doesn’t work. Has something changed?

Have you put in your own Twilio API keys? The template doesn’t have a key right now and it needs one to run.

Gotcha. I got it to work — thanks for sharing the template. I look forward to seeing your guide to receiving SMS’s whenever that time comes :slight_smile:

FYI - I removed the + symbol and it worked. Just 1 (for USA/Canada) and the area code no + needed.

Thanks. I went ahead and paid for this tutorial. I was not aware I needed to do a backend workflow and call the API.

Question: What is the best way to save that reply from the SMS to the current conversation with that user? The user in bubble starts the conversation, i then have a conversation thing created. How do I tie that incoming SMS to that conversation? Your assistance will be very much appreciated!
