Two-way SMS setp using Twilio plugin fir Bubble.io

Hi, Does anyone have a bubble setup they can share for a 2-way Twilio messaging system setup? I don’t even know how to start it. There’s not much detail on the Zeroquode plugin site.
Thanks

Hello, @dhawan_30!

Thank you for reaching out.

Kindly specify, at which step of a setup you got stuck? Please, add a detailed screenshot of the used elements and the workflow.

In general, to use this plugin, you need to follow the steps, which are described in the plugin’s Demo.

Please note, that steps 1-3 are presented for a Twilio account set up and for the data, that you need to get from there. After you get the Generatedkey via https://www.base64encode.org/ (using the accountSID and authtoken from your Twilio dashboard), you need to insert it in the plugin settings in Bubble editor. In your editor go to Plugins–Twilio and instert the Generatedkey here https://prnt.sc/13o1ddl

Next, using our Demo page as an example, in your editor you can build inputs for inserting senderphonenumber, recipient, and message text: https://prnt.sc/13o1fk7

In the workflow trigger the plugin action “Twilio - Send text message”. In the action fields, you indicate the dynamic data - input value https://prnt.sc/13o1i0w.

Hope I’ve managed to describe to you how to set up the plugin.

If you’ll have any additional questions on the way, please, let me know.

Best regards.

Hi @Elena, could you please resend the links to screenshots in your message? None of them are visible they are taking me to some “Lightshot” scrren capture tool website.

Thanks

Let me know if with the pictures it got more clear and, of course, inform me if there will be some other questions on the way.

Hi @Elena, Thanks a lot. It worked ! I’m able to send a text from my WebApp using your plugin and I received the SMS on my phone. I do have another request though. Do you have a working App, demo or some instructions on how to get SMS working between two mobile phones using Twilio. In my WebApp the commuication will be started from within the WebApp (just like in you demo) but once the SMS is received on receiver’s phone, the response needs to go back to the sender’s mobille phone as an SMS. Any guidance would be highly appreciated. Twilio site has some information but Twilio doesn’t know bubble and I’m not a coder per se. Thank you in advance !

Hello, @dhawan_30!

I’m glad that I could help!:slight_smile:

About your next question - unfortunately, it is not possible to implement via SMS messages from the phone. However, it can be done in some other way, using WhatsApp.

Let’s, you are registering a number, which you got from Twilio, in WhatsApp. It will serve now as the sender. And therefore the communication will be done between the sender (through WhatsApp) and any recipient, using Twilio as an intermediate service.

This is an approximate solution, just to give you an idea, as it is not a solution based on the adjustment of the plugin.

Best regards.
