Course description

In this Bootcamp, you will gain a deeper understanding of the requisite knowledge and resources needed to configure an SMS gateway in DHIS2 that will interact with a third party SMS service provider. The SMS gateways are necessary to send and receive the SMS data in DHIS2. The DHIS2 gateway connects the third party SMS service provider with DHIS2's SMS service module, which interacts with the API and can be shared throughout other DHIS2 modules in order to expose SMS capabilities for things like registrations and reminders. Join this Bootcamp and learn how to unlock the power of DHIS2’s SMS integration abilities. This Bootcamp will not cover using an Android device as an SMS gateway. 

This Bootcamp will cover important topics including: 

  • Understanding SMS service providers
  • Different types of SMS gateways
  • Integrating the gateway configuration with third party service
  • Viewing/managing inbound SMS data
Training highlight
