Important

Activation of the 1-Way SMS Module is required prior to activating 2-Way SMS if not already enabled.

Best Practice

Due to limitations by SMS providers the Property Name cannot be displayed as the SMS Name when using 2-Way SMS in RMS. Using the Property Name prevents the ability for recipients to reply to the SMS.

RMS recommends using the Property Name Merge Field as early as possible in the SMS Template to ensure recipients can easily identify the sender of the SMS. 

Properties using 1-Way SMS can setup their Property Name as the SMS Name in RMS as no reply is expected.
