How to attach MMS to your Mogli Message(s) in Salesforce
You may send up to 5MB of mixed MMS (jpeg, gif, png, pdf, mp4) over non-WhatsApp Gateways from Conversation View. WhatsApp Gateways support singular attachments of up to 16MB.
- Click “Upload Files,” select a file, and click “Done” when the file has finished loading.
- Click the “Send” icon.
Inbound and Outbound MMS is not supported when sent via a toll-free number. Either switch to a different Mogli number or, if you only have a toll-free number configured, reach out to Mogli’s Client Success team to get a regular long-code.
Considerations for MMS
MMS is currently supported when sent within the US and Canada. International MMS outside of the US and Canada is not yet supported. However, MMS sent internationally will be converted to SMS with a URL link to the media.
PDF and CSV files may not display properly on Android devices.
Here are some alternative options:
- Export the file to another format as a failsafe.
- In line with the MMS, include copy that lets the recipient know the file may be accessed on a computer if received on an Android.
- If you are just beginning to use Mogli for Salesforce and are collecting text message opt-in, you may choose to use Mogli’s form functionality to ask recipients about communication preferences, including what kind of device they use.
Learn more about opt-in in the following resources:
Incoming MMS will appear in real-time within Conversation View. MMS may be downloaded by clicking the icon in the lower right corner of the file.
Alternatively, you may click on the text beneath the MMS, where you’ll find the MMS stored within Files and Notes & Attachments.
