Send SMS for Alert in SharePoint 2010

Hi All,

Although we haven’t got a chance to put our hands dirty on this feature. However it certainly takes the alert system to the next level.

We all are familiar with sending alert by email in SharePoint 2007. In SharePoint 2010, you can also send SMS to the mobile.

Advantage of sending SMS over email is email can get into a mass span category and some time lose an important update. However this is not the case with SMS.

In central administration, you need to provide the URL of SMS service, credentials. You can check the SMS service by hitting the test service button.

It works over Office Mobile Service Protocol like mail uses SMTP. This OMS actually allows client to send text and multimedia messages to server which processes the request and sends to the destination mobile number.

Even the SMS can also be replied and service can then deliver this reply in terms of SMTP mail.

We will be checking more on this and as soon as get a chance, we will play with it and let you know the result.
