Is it possible to use a dynamic content block created in content builder in a Mobile Connect SMS? For example the SMS content would read "Hi this is a fancy message here is your coupon %%=ContentBlockbyId("67053")=%%. Thanks!".

The dynamic content is based on the same Data Extension as will be used to send the SMS.

No. Though you may be able to use Code Snippets for MobileConnect.

These functions support email messages only. For text-only parts of the email, such as From Address, From Name, or Subject Line, reference the code snippet block.

  • You can use the ContentBlockbyId function in a SMS message but need to be sure that you call only Code Snippets with AMPscript and/or text in them. The other content block types utilize HTML which will not render in a SMS message. Aug 2 at 15:02
