Sending SMS Text from Power Apps

Hey Everyone,
This video will introduce you how to send a Short Message Service or SMS text via Power Apps canvas app and using a Twilio connector. The demo includes how a manager is able to see all the employees who report to her/him and can select to which employee the text message must be sent.

I also deep-dive in how you can collect important metadata which is also used to verify if the SMS text messages have been sent successfully.

Note: I am not affiliated with Twilio.
