Guests can share their creations in the app via text message with this setting enabled. You can customize that experience here.


Once you've enabled this share feature, you have some options to customize the experience...

...but first...


1.

In order to share via text using our software, you must connect a Twilio account. Twilio is a mobile service provider that handles the actual messaging. While we are not otherwise partnered with Twilio, we found their service the most compatible with our system. 


If you do not have one already, create an account to get started at Twilio.com. Twilio does charge for their service, however the cost per SMS message is quite small (MMS messages cost more).


Once you have your account setup with Twilio, click "Connect" in the Text Share Settings. A window will open prompting you to login to your Twilio account and connect the two.



Once the accounts are connected, the fields should auto-fill and you're all set (once your event is saved).


2.

You have the option of entering some default text to appear in the message field for every text message share!


Note that guests will have the option to edit this text before they send, but it will be there by default each time.


3.

You have the option to send the content via SMS or MMS. 


3a.

SMS costs less from Twilio because it's just text, not the files themselves. With SMS enabled, the Unique URL feature is enabled and a link to unique microsite containing the shared content will be sent to the recipient. 



For more information on the Unique URL feature, check out Event Creator - Sharing - Unique URL


3b.

MMS will cost a little more with Twilio because this will send the actual Photo or GIF files to the recipient via text, rather than the link. 


Keep in Mind: 

Video files cannot be sent via MMS using this service.



NOTE: Email addresses captured using this process will be stored in your event data, and will be subject to any associated data capture/removal settings established in a Survey/Disclaimer Checkbox option.
