We are running Vtiger 5.04 You will need to have previous experience with Vtiger CRM in order to accept this project.
We are looking to be able to send contacts a SMS message via [url removed, login to view] using their system as shown on:
[url removed, login to view]
We want to have a custom form (need not be inside the CRM itself but would be a nice to have) that will give us the ability to search for or specify contacts to receive the SMS.
We want to be able to list a specific group of contacts by selecting a dropdown or other method.
or all contacts that have “receives SMS” or “Service reminder” ticked as a custom field in the contacts section of Vtiger (these will be created as needed and the form needs to be able to read these fields, your recommendation here will be required. An example of this custom field will be shown in the demo CRM.)
SMS messages to be sent on a schedule and/or manually.
Having a look inside Vtiger itself, when you open a contact there is a “Send e-mail” button, we would like there to be a button just next to that that can be used to “Send SMS”, button can merely link to a popup form that reads the contacts Mobile number and puts it into the correct field so a manual sms can be sent to that contact.
Limitations and specifications regarding the use of the Clickatell service need to be researched by yourself on their website, it’s seems to be a very informative site with a very detailed section for developers/system integrators.
