Can you add tokens to SMS messages? We want to send a link to a form to see if users want to opt in to our SMS messages, but we would like to send a link similar to a website link in an email with the checksum token. Is this possible through Civi SMS?

Yes, you could use tokens in sms messages.

Be aware an issue with the required character length on sms, and the fact that tokens would represent different character lengths.

  • Like Flying says - and I'd recommend using URL shortening codes shuch as bitly or linkmeto.it
