Clicksend set up

Hi guys,

I have gloria food and would like to text customers when order is ready for collection.

I have joined clicksend and they say it would be possible to implement clicksend to sambapos as they give api for it.

I’m not very switch on with technical stuff but I can follow instructions if it’s simple.

Could i request for some help in setting up clicksend to my sambapos please?

Thank you

Details on their api would be required for a start.
There are lots of examples on intergrations.
Some simple message servers you can use a url printer that uses a printer template and print job. A more complex api may required but more work in creating a.script to post auth and message content to their api.

You set a print job for it and then use a rule and action to decide when to execute them. In my case I used delivery setup and when a driver was assigned to the ticket it executed both print jobs sending a text to driver and a text to customer.

Thank you Jesse.

Can I use the same url as you posted or would each customer would have individual url?

Also how would clicksend know it’s me? How would I log in?

I want to set it hi p for collection only, so it text customers Everytime I press ready in preparing.

Thank you

Look in the url, the username, password, number and message are part of it :wink: thats how they know who you are and who your messaging.
The number and message are variables from the print templatr
