Once the TXTinIT App has been installed into your Salesforce Org, you will need to authenticate the app with both TXTinIT and your SMS Gateway Provider. This will enable you to send text messages directly out of Salesforce.
This guide assumes that you have chosen Bulletin as your SMS Gateway Provider of choice.
Authenticate Your Org
Step 1: Open TXTinIT
Open the TXTinIT app from the App Launcher.
If you do not see the app, you may not have the TXTinIT license assigned to your user account.
Step 2: Open SMS Settings
Click on SMS Settings.
Step 3: Start The Process
Click on Get Started.
Step 4: Enter SMS Gateway Provider Credentials
Select Bulletin. If you are using another Provider then select the one relevant to you.
Key in both your SMS Gateway Provider User Name and Password. (Please note, depending on your gateway this may require API Credentials to be set up and used in place of a username & password)
Click Save and Continue.
This step is required to enable Salesforce integration with your chosen SMS Gateway Provider
Step 5: Authenticate With TXTinIT
Click Auth with TXTinIT.
This step is required to register with TXTinIT.
Step 6: Allow Access
Click on Allow.
Step 7: Close Confirmation
Your Org is now authenticated with TXTinIT.
Step 8: Continue
Click on Continue.
It has been reported that the Authenticated Field sometimes stays as "Not Connected" even after authentication has been successful. This will be resolved at a later date.
Step 9: Send A Test Message
Enter a Mobile Number.
Enter a Test Message. Remember that character limits apply.
After receiving your test message click Start Sending.
If you have made a mistake with your SMS Gateway Provider credentials repeat Step 4 to resolve the issue.
