Without the contents of the Automation settings and the error message from monitor, I can’t figure out the cause.

here is the error, the phone number i place it a text as +6012xxxxxxx … now i have set it to “+6012xxxxxxx”

however after that i didn’t see the event in the monitor,

btw, i am using just started with twilio, currently it is on trial, the number is in the verified list and also in the country supported.

the workflow test is working

okay, looks like the last bot event, in the monitor. it is successful.

checked from twilio there is no usage/

What country do you want to send the SMS to?
If it is addressed to Japan, the number will start with “+81”.

sending to Malaysia which is +60, so i have changed the number to “+6012xxxxxxx” seem that the sending is working but just that didn’t receive the SMS on the phone.

In the country code i have include US, and MY. as the SMS sender phone i got from twilio is US.

Sorry, it’s not addressed to Japan.

@EugeneB

You might want to contact twilio support.
I just tested it in my environment with this setting and it was sent to me.

Manage to resolve the SMS issue, it is due to have to deploy the app. can’t keep it as prototype.

@Takuya_Miyai , have you tried sending whatsapp message using twilio?

Manage to send WhatsApp Message using webhook to Twilio REST API. can refer to the post here Guide: Twilio WhatsApp Message API WebHook with Appsheet Bot

@EugeneB

It was. I forgot that I had to deploy it.:pray:

I’ve never tried Whatsapp. WhatsApp is not popular in Japan at all.:sweat_smile:
