Oct 25, 2018 at 7:25am   •   3 replies  •  0 likes


I'm making a script to send SMS using the developper APP api.

Currently, im able to send SMS with it and i got it in "Production" and it work fine.

My issue is that it only use the Main Account Admin Phone Number. Its like that by default.

What i'd like to do is to send sms using any of my ring central number. (I've around 20 of them currently assign to my caller)

How can i do that? Send SMS via my script/app but whit a different number?

And you can login each extension to send SMS, of course.

You can specify the "from" parameter when sending an SMS. But you cannot just specify whatever number. You should check /restapi/v1.0/account/~/extension/~/phone-number for numbers available for you to send SMS.

You could use Zapier. I know, lame response. We automate texts from each of our users accounts, each has to be set up in a separate zap in Zapier. Only thing is, if you have a phone tree like we do, you're unable to send from main number in Zapier. I have the opposite problem!
