SMS Notifications

How to enable SMS notifications and ensure correct formatting is applied.

Enabling SMS Notifications

SMS notifications can also be enabled/disabled from within your web dashboard, to achieve this, please find steps below: 

  • Log into the SwipedOn web dashboard.

  • Navigate to the 'Settings' > 'Visitors' view. 

  • Enable host selection and then the 'Send visitor notifications to host by' will appear and email and/or SMS can then be selected as the method of notification.

Formatting the Employee's Phone Number

Specific formatting is required in order for SMS notifications to function correctly.
Correct formatting can be achieved either by selecting the flag to apply to the country code or by adding the country code before the number, e.g. +1 XXXXXXXX

*Please note, if using the employee bulk upload or AD sync feature, be sure to add the country code for a successful upload.
