Text Message Notifications

Set up text message notifications when someone submits your form (new entries) or when a user in your Wufoo account adds a comment to an entry (new comments).

SMS Notifications

To set up text notifications for your form:

  1. Log in and go to Forms.
  2. To the right of the form, hover over Edit.
  3. Click Add notifications.
  4. Enter your cell phone number (no dashes or spaces, for example: 5554446666). You can only use one phone number.
  5. Choose Your Carrier.
  6. Select if you'd like texts when you get New Entries, New Comments, or both.
  7. Click Save.
TIP! Watch our video overview.

Managing Text Notifications

Your Carrier

If your carrier is listed twice, choose the one that appears higher in the list—it's the most up-to-date. If for some reason that doesn't work, choose the next one in the list.

If your carrier isn't listed or doesn't work:

  1. Select Other
  2. Find your carrier's email to SMS pattern using Google or another search engine. If you can't find the info for your carrier, please contact them.
  3. Enter your cell phone number (no dashes or spaces) and add your carrier's email to SMS pattern. For example: 5554446666@txt.att.net
  4. Click Save.

Alternatively, you could use the Zapier integration to get text notifications.

Turning Off Texts

To turn off text notifications:

  1. Open your form's notifications.
  2. Delete your phone number.
  3. Click Save.
How can I view the whole entry?

Since carriers have limits on how long texts can be, you might find that the form title is cut off, and you'll only see the first two fields in the text message (depending on the length of the field labels, you might see less).

How can I customize the text message?

While it's not possible in Wufoo to customize what the text will say, you can instead use the Zapier integration to customize what you want the text to say.

Set up text message notifications when someone submits your form (new entries) or when a user in your Wufoo account adds a comment to an entry (new comments).
