Configuring Burst SMS Caller ID
To configure the Caller ID go to - Setup > Marketplace > All > Burst SMS Extension Setting.
For Burst SMS Caller ID, you have three options
Option 1: You leave the "Burst SMS Caller ID" blank
If you leave the "Burst SMS Caller ID" blank any SMS that you send will come from a Shared Number pool that Burst SMS controls. This Shared Number can change between SMS. Replies to your SMS will appear as normal in your SMS History.
Option 2: You enter your assigned Virtual Number
Burst SMS provides clients with the option of buying a Virtual Number. This number is assigned to your Burst SMS account and all SMS will be associated with this number. This number will not change unlike when using a Shared Number. Replies to your SMS will appear as normal in your SMS history.
Option 3: You enter anything else
You have entered anything in this field, eg "OscilloSoft". When people receive your SMS they will see the sender as what you've written into the field, ie "OscilloSoft". Your clients are able to send SMS replies, however, you will not be able to receive them
Then, Click on Save.
