Using Flow Builder, you can easily trigger a GET or POST request for your own server when your flow receives an incoming SMS. Go to Flow Builder in the Dashboard, and create a new flow or use the template ‘Automatic SMS subscriptions’.
- Select the phone number you’d like to attach flow to.
- Click on the ‘Forward to URL’ Step, and set up the attributes. In ‘Method’ choose between GET or POST request; you also need to type down the URL of your webhook. Click on save when ready.
- When you are done building your flow, click on either ‘Save draft’ or ‘Publish’ on the right top of the screen.
