  • Hi there

    The answer to this is not as straightforward as the question. Firstly, do you have an SMS provider already, or are you planning on hosting an SMS gateway yourself?

    If the answer is no to both the above then you need to first determine how you are going to send the SMS once a process has created one.

  • You need a provider - or a way of actually passing the SMS onto a gateway. You can't really do anything else until you know how you will get the SMS into the airwaves!

    Once you have a provider they will usually have an API or a web service you can use to call their sending methods. Once you have this you can code a solution to sending the SMS, then the web part to pass the information to the service.

  • i found this sms provider
    they supported me with this code

    private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
                string toPhoneNumber = toTextBox.Text;
                string login = fromTextBox.Text;
                string password = passTextBox.Text;
                string compression = subjectTextBox.Text;
                string body = bodyTextBox.Text;

                MailMessage mail = new MailMessage();
                mail.To = toPhoneNumber + "";
                mail.From = login + "";
                mail.Subject = compression;
                mail.Body = body;
                mail.Fields.Add("", "1");
                mail.Fields.Add("", login);
                mail.Fields.Add("", password);

                System.Web.Mail.SmtpMail.SmtpServer = "";

                /*set the addresses
                mail.From = new MailAddress("");

                //set the content
                mail.Subject = "This is an email";
                mail.Body = "this is a sample body";

                //send the message
                SmtpClient smtp = new SmtpClient("");

  •  SharePoint App Store has an App (add-in)   : SMS for Office (Send SMS Via SharePoint List)

    • There are zero configurations required from your end (no creating accounts with SMS  gateways providers like some people have suggested above)
    • Install the add-in and you will get a SharePoint list in your site, where you can start sending SMS.
    • For SMS Alerts , you would have to make use of SharePoint Designer workflow to create an list item entry in the SMS List. (You can use the default SharePoint Create a list item action here)
    • You can use SharePoint people picker to select SMS recipeints, and the number configured in their user profile is used for sending SMS
    • A complete list of features is available in the company website here :
