This field determines what your SMS is sent from – the name or number that appears as the sender when your contact receives the SMS. Here are your options:
Shared Local Number – Replies to Web Inbox & Email
This uses a rotating pool of mobile numbers that allow you to receive replies to SMS sent. Numbers are randomly selected, so recipients receive messages from a different number each time. This is free to use and replies are free.
Virtual Number – Replies to Web Inbox & Email
You can purchase a Virtual Number from your touchSMS account (pricing and availability vary per region). This number is exclusive to your account, so recipients receive messages and reply to the same number each time you send.
Sender ID – No Replies
Send SMS from your business name rather than a number. Alphanumeric Sender IDs must be registered and approved by Edgility through your account. These have a maximum of 11 characters and cannot contain any symbols. Recipients CANNOT reply to messages sent using a Sender ID.
Own Number – Replies to Your Mobile
As your mobile number is verified at signup, you can send SMS from Edgility using your registered mobile number. Replies to messages sent using your own mobile number will be received by your mobile therefore not received in your Edgility account.
Your default Sender ID is managed from your online account. To add a new Sender ID or manage an existing one simply log in and navigate to Profile > Allowed Sender ID’s
If you have purchased a touchSMS Virtual Number for sending, you can send MMS from Teams. Click the Add Media button to browse and select your image.
