SMS Verification

The SMS Verification field allows you to ask your form users to enter their mobile number and verify it using an SMS verification code sent from Snapforms.

You can use this field to:

  • Send confirmation codes for orders, requests, signups, and more
  • Verify mobile numbers for enrolment or registration forms
  • Confirm ticket purchases or appointment bookings

Please note an SMS fee applies to each verification SMS that is sent to your form users. 

Tip: If you don’t have a specific requirement for verifying mobile numbers, you can use a short answer field to collect mobile numbers instead.

Basic setup

  1. In the Form Fields panel (left-hand side), under Advanced Form Fields, click and drag the SMS Verification field onto your form.
  2. Enter the field question or name.
  3. Tick I agree to be billed for SMS usage on this form.
  4. (Optional) Tick if answering this question is compulsory.
  5. Save & Close.
