The SMS Usage report shows all the days within the time range for which SMS messages were sent. They are divided into Communicator, Text-to-Tip, Transactional, and Marketing SMS.
Things to know::
Twilio (and the SMS industry as a whole) counts messages using message segments. Learn more about segments here.
The report is not visible on parent accounts, only on child accounts
It is by account, not by location. The reason being clients can be associated with more than one location and many SMS are not location-specific (Communicator messages, overdue for the next appointment messages, happy birthday messages, etc).
- In order for the SMS Usage report to be viewable, the report access control must be configured to "View All Locations Reports."
The report can be accessed from the "My Account" page under the "My Plan" tab or directly from the Reports tab
To access the report from the Reports tab:
Navigate to Dashboard
Select the Reports tab
Under the Company section, select the SMS Usage report
To access the report from the My Account tab:
- Navigate to My Account
