SMS Automation

Similar to WhatsApp automation now you can send and receive SMS using your SIM Card directly from the Picky Assist Console or Your Server Using our Webhook & API

Missed Call Automation

When a new call arrives on your mobile number our application automatically rejects the call after few seconds as configured by you and pushes the information on real time to your Picky Assist Console / Server along with the Caller Number

You can give an SMS acknowledgment back to the caller instantly using the SMS Broadcast API / Webhook / Auto Reply

To Configure Static Auto Reply for Calls Go to Settings -> Channels -> Calls -> From the popup configure the auto reply message which would like to send to the caller after rejecting the call.

Developers Note

There is no change in the structure of Webhook or API Call for SMS & Calls , just update the below values in your code

SMS Broadcast use application=3 to send SMS out , please dont pass Media URL for SMS.

Webhook application=3 will be SMS and application=4 is Missed Call (only number will be passed for missed call)
