Creating an Ad-Hoc Recipient

Top  Previous  Next

Note: You must have a 5000 recipient license to unlock PageGate's ad-hoc features.


Ad-Hoc recipients function as a pass-through for provided input. Put another way, an ad-hoc recipient lets you pass in the phone number or contact information you want the message delivered to rather than having that phone number exist as a static entry in the recipients list. These recipients can be implemented in different ways with each of PageGate's APIs and can also be a key component of creating a two way messaging system.
