How to setup actions
Send Transactional (Notification) SMS
Since it's an action, transactional SMS can be placed anywhere in scenario chain. Placing BulkGate module in the chain you will be presented with above mentioned list. Choose transactional SMS action and following modal window will show up. First you'll need to create a connection with BulkGate, which unlike most apps sends authentication information (Application ID, Application Token) with every request. If you do not know how to acquire such information visit BulkGate API setup. For additional information on what to input as other parameters visit BulkGate API specification.
Send Promotional (Bulk) SMS
Unlike transactional SMS which is used to send single SMS to single contact, Promotional SMS is used to send single SMS to multiple contacts. Setting up this action in scenario is very similar to transactional SMS with one additional parameter added. For further information visit BulkGate API specification.
Check credit balance
This action is used to receive status of credit. As an action it can be placed in anywhere in scenario chain. All parameters it needs are (Application ID, Application Token).
Get Delivery Reports
This action just as others can be placed anywhere in the integromat chain, but unlike others it requires parameter "Message ID". Which can be acquired only by sending SMS by either Transaction SMS, or Promotional SMS and receiving their return data. Ideally this action should be placed behind previsously mentioned actions.
How to setup triggers
Get Delivery Reports
This trigger shares the same name with one of the actions, because it function similarly, but is used differently. Triggers are placed at the beginning of the integromat chain. To properly setup this trigger visit Integromat webhook setup.
