This is a paid feature. You must unlock Darkroom Booth Pro to access these features.Darkroom Booth for iPad allows you to connect your Twilio account in the app so that guests at events can send and receive their images via the SMS sharing option. To sign up for a Twilio account please visit www.twilio.com.
We do not send images in text messages directly due to the risk of reduced image quality, and also to comply with the restrictions of telecom providers outside of the United States.
If you have Darkroom Event Gallery set up and microsites enabled on the Booth app, shares via SMS will send a link to the image in the gallery.
To link your Twilio account on Darkroom Booth for iPad, you first need to access Settings.
From the navigation bar on the left-hand side of the Settings page, select ‘Sharing’.
Scroll to the bottom of the page and under ’SMS Provider’, you will be able to see the status of your configuration.
Click on this box to continue with set up.
When in SMS Configuration, make sure you have Twilio selected under ‘SMS Provider’.
You will need to enter information into the following fields:
To configure your SMS provider, you need to have the API Access Key (SID) and API Access Key (Auth Token).
To find both of these, you will need to be logged into your Twilio account on your chosen browser. You can log in here.
When logged in, on your Twilio Account Dashboard you will see both API Access Keys shown under Project Info.
Copy each key individually into Hula Booth.
Once you have copied both API Keys into your settings, next to the test number you entered, press the ’Test’button.
Hula Booth will let you know if you the message was successful or not. If successful, make sure you press ’Save SMS Settings’ before exiting the screen.
If your message was not successful, check again that all details entered were correct.
