    Title:
    SMS Notification for Approvals
    Content:

    Hi Experts,

    We are building a web-app using VBCS wherein one of the requirements is to send an SMS notification to different stakeholders for approvals and FYI notifications.

    Is it possible to send SMS notifications from VBCS, if yes would you be able to let me know different options we have? Also is it feasible to send Push Notifications in a Mobile app built using VBCS?

    Thank you.

    FYI,

    If you have a full OIC environment, it is very easy to setup the Twilio adapter to do various notifications such as SMS and deal with reply messages too.

      There is no built-in functionality to send SMS in VB (there is one for sending emails from the BO though).

      You can call out to a third party SMS sending service that provides a REST interface.

      As for push notifications in mobile apps, an upcoming update to VB is planned to add support for Cordova plug-ins, and this will allow you to receive push notifications in your mobile app.
