    Default Text MSG application with A5v9 WAS

    Hi All,

    Has anyony setup a text mesage application with WAS? what I am looking to do is send service call locations to my drivers cell phones and have A5v9 WAS no if the driver got the text msg automaticaly so that our dispatch department knows if they need to call the driver on his/her cell phone with the service call. Is this a possible application with a5v9 WAS? we are using Sprint/Nextel for the phone service.

    To keep it simple, I want to send Address, City, and trouble code to the driver and have the driver be able to respond to the A5v9 WAS that he got the call via the tesx msg so A5v9 WAS can alert the dispatcher that he/she got the service call. Any advice on how to get started would be great, I want to make this into a full blown system at some point.

    Thanks,
    Ray

    Ray,

    While I have not created an app sending text messages, I have set up an app that sent out emails with data from a form. Sending text messages would be the basically the same.

    Also you can parse incoming emails, so you should be able to parse the incoming responses.

    For further help I would search on "Email and Web Applications" in the help file.

The agent can add comments, or just return with no comments. Since the reponse includes exact date and time submitted, you could capture that when sent, and then parse the incoming email for a match.

    I'd work with someone to develop this. My prototype is too simplistic for a complete application, although it has the basic parts.

    The return receipt looks like this if the agent did not add any comments:

    Your message to 6507594700 submitted 8/15/2008 23:33 PST was delivered 8/15/2008 23:33 PST
