Welcome to the next part of SMSAPI Do it yourself Guide. In this part you will learn how to manage users of your account in the SMSAPI Customer Portal. 

Manage users and subaccounts

Access management to the SMSAPI account is located in the Subusers tab after clicking on the account name in the upper right corner.  

Add new subuser

To add a new user, click the “Add new subuser” button and fill in the basic login information (name and password). It is also required to determine the current status of the user’s account taken from the main account. 

You should also set a monthly pool of points, which will be automatically overwritten on the user’s account every month. Setting zero in Account balance field will cause that this user will not be able to send messages until the monthly pool of points is renewed – unless zero in the monthly pool of points is entered. Then the account status will not update. 

More options

Then set the account status activity along with any description. It is also possible to limit the hours and days of sending messages by the user and to set the maximum number of parts of messages sent from his account. The account may also have the Mail2sms feature enabled.  

Expiration date of SMS

Setting the message expiration date means that after the indicated number of hours, the operator will stop trying to deliver messages in case the recipient’s phone is off or out of range.

You can also enable the default replacement of special characters with the standard equivalents. Users may also have access to their own or shared blacklist, selected SMSAPI services and functions, their own or shared contact database, selected sender names and templates.  

After entering the settings, click “add user”. A list of all users with basic data and the ability to delete, edit and directly log in to his account is in the main panel of the Subusers menu. 

That’s it. See you in the next episode!
