I am new to the salesforce marketing API and want to know how to respond to a text message from a user and store information they send in my database. Should I be using SMS interactions or Mobile Connect?

Is there a code example somewhere of what needs to be set up?

Additionally, how might I respond to a picture message/store the picture?

Thank you very much for your time. I am still researching, let me know if you need more info or I am being unclear.


The documentation you're after can be found here: AMPScript Variables for Use with Mobile Messages

With the message components as variables, you can write values to a Data Extension, including the URL of the image. Theoretically, you could use AMPScript to download and move this to the Portfolio.

  • Thank you very much. I am looking into this and AMPScripts. I have never used AMPScript, do you think it is able to use it to upload the image to Amazon S3 storage?
