Dimitrios Galanis asked 6 years ago
 First of all congratulations for the 2way sync google calendar. It is working like a charm now. Waiting for the international prefix integration. And something else: When the customer receives a message from twilio sender ID is Verify by default. I contacted twilio again for this and they told my that is the app designers job again. I am transfering their words for you to know.    As we are an API, all activity is done via an API request, this includes outbound sms. So if you want to change your sender ID you need to do so from the API, such as this ; curl -XPOST \
-d "Body=Let%27s%20grab%20lunch%20at%20Milliways%20tomorrow!" \
-d "To=%2B15558675310" \
-d "From=TWILIO" \
-d "MediaUrl=" \
-u 'AC452796871bdd15c64d02585123cf6316:your_auth_token'
So wherever you are generating your requests is where you need to change it. Either via a manual code adjustment, or if you are using a 3rd party application, have them change it on your behalf

I would like to be able to change the sms ID Verify for my company name for example. Twilio supports an sms name for my country alphasender is supported for Greece. I would be grateful if you could integrate this feature also Nicola.

Hi, I am working on that country code prefix now :). Regarding this part you want to set "Name" instead of showing number from it was sent? Best regards, Nikola

For some reason the sms ID my customers receive is ”Verify” and not the number I have in twilio. Maybe because alphasender is enabled. I would prefer to change it to ”drgalanis”. Twilio told me that they cannot change it only the app designer can do that. So I am asking whether Verify is set by you as default and whether I can change it for drgalanis(my name). Otherwise I prefer Verify as ID instead of the awkard twilio number which is useless to show.
If you could handle this also it would be great.

Congratulations the sender ID change is now possible if you change the mobile number for a word up to 10 letters approximately. Keep up the good work!

Hi, where did you change the senders ID? In the WP page you can only add the phonenumber or is it also possible to enter a name in stead of the phone number from Twilio?
