Custom Client Fields

To be able to send SMS messages to the client we need a few custom clients fields what are details entered when the client registers.
  1. From within the WHMCS admin panel click Setup > Custom Client Fields
  2. Enter the following custom fields shown in the picture below
    images/addons/documentation/sms/sms_addon_customfields.gif
  3. Click the Save Changes button
  4. Continue with [iurl=#Addon Settings]Addon Settings[/iurl]
 

Addon Settings

Once the addon has been installed it is time to configure the WHMCS integration and customised messages.
To access these settings click Addons > SMS Addon > Settings > General Settings
  1. Select the Custom Client Fields options as setup in the [iurl=#Custom Client Fields]previous step[/iurl]
  2. In the Notify True Field selection, select the option the client must select to send a SMS
  3. Under Client Actions / Admin Actions you can set wether you wish a message to be sent out for each action,
  4. You can also customise each message what will be sent for that action, messages can be customised with [iurl=#SMS Tags]sms tags[/iurl] as described below
 

Cron File

A cron file is included within the main directory of the addon which is a replacement for the standard WHMCS cron.

This only needs to be used when using the Directory re-namer function included in Admin Secure as the default cron file is contained within the admin directory which is renamed.

This cron file operates as a dynamic 'shortcut' to the cron file contained within the admin directory.

Client Profile Intergration

If you would like to add a sms button to each client summary page then using a FTP client edit the following file.

admin / templates / (template name) / clientssummary.tpl

Find the location which you would like to place the link (I choose the Send Email box) and add the following code,

<a href="addonmodules.php?module=sms_addon&page=sendsms&cid={$clientsdetails.userid}">Send SMS Message</a>
