Sending Text / SMS Notifications

If you have fully automated the conversion of documents using the TIFF Image Printer, Raster Image Printer and PDF Image Printer, you may want to send out text / SMS notifications indicating the success or failure of the conversion.

These notifications can be sent using SMS which sends a text message to your phone or you could use the Email options to send success or failure messages using SMTP or Outlook.

The steps below demonstrate using the SMS tab to send a text message when a conversion succeeds and/or fails.
