We are working on an SMS component compatible with J1.5, 2.5 and 3.0 to enable websites to send follow-up campaigns, auto-responders, newsletters, promotions, deals, automated messages... via SMS.
Basically all what AcyMailing does will be possible with AcySMS but instead of sending e-mails, it will deliver SMS.
This is our first second third beta version so only a few of our (and yours...) numerous ideas are developed.
This beta version of AcySMS can be downloaded only by our "paid" users
We need your help!
Give us some feedback!
Bad or good, we are definitely looking for feedback.
You can get in touch with us on our forum, we created a dedicated section for AcySMS.
Help us to test it!
This is beta version... we try to test it as much as we can but we certainly didn't test it on all environments.
If you have a bug (even a small weird pixel), please report it on our forum.
We are creating a specific phone field validation for each country.
We already have the right format for:
Your country is not in this list?
Quick start guide
1/ Install it!
Well, that's the easy part... AcySMS is an all-in-one package so you simply have to install the main package on your Joomla website and you're done.
2/ Create a sender profile
You need to sign up with an SMS provider to deliver SMS.
Your favourite provider is not in that list?
So once your SMS provider account is created, access the menu Sender Profiles (just under the configuration one) and create your Sender Profile.
You can choose the "test" provider when you create a sender profile, that way no SMS will be really sent but you will be able to test the whole process without having to pay for a provider.
3/ Configure AcySMS
AcySMS does not have its own user manager.
You can for now use AcySMS with:
Access the AcySMS configuration page to select the component you want to use as user manager.
Our plan is to "plug" AcySMS to all Joomla user management and e-commerce extensions.
Don't forget to set up your default country so AcySMS will automatically check and add the country code to your phone number when necessary.
4/ Create your first SMS
Well, that's it... you're ready to create and send your first SMS.
You will see we already have a tag system so you can include user information in your SMS and if you select the AcyMailing integration then we have a few automated SMS such as sending one SMS X days after the user subscription to an AcyMailing list and an SMS birthday feature. Many other integrations will come in the future, it's just the start of a new component.
The interface is pretty obvious... I hope!
