Allow your users to text their votes for a Formidable poll or survey. SMS notifications are not yet included.
To setup text voting:
- Create your Formidable form
- Log into your Twilio account and go the the Numbers page
- Uncheck the “Voice” box if you do not want to accept phone calls.
- Change the SMS request URL to /index.php?plugin=frm_twilio&action=vote&form=5 (Change the 5 to the ID of your form)
- Text away.
Your users can either text the number position of the choice in your form, or the word itself.
For example, if I have a poll for favorite colors and my choices are Red, Green, Pink, and Blue, and my favorite color is pink then I can text any of the following: 3, Pink, pink, PINK. If the field is a data from entries field, only the ID of the linked entry will work. This vote will be applied to all fields in the form, so a text field might be good to add as a catch-all.
