Full Reference

The following table contains more detailed descriptions and example values to help you understand the various data-options.

This table is for your reference only, do not copy this table in to your emails as it may not work.

FieldSample valueDescription
The matter or action ID.
Assigned To Email[[e_mail|pt=Action_Assigned_to]]The email address of the person looking after the matter. Typically the acting lawyer or conveyancer.
SMS GotrueBoolean true / yes or false / no (without quotes) to tell the system whether to actually send the SMS or not.

If set to true and all remaining data is valid, the SMS will be sent.

If set to false the SMS will NOT be sent, regardless of the validity of remaining data.
Org Key[[system_orgKey]]The Actionstep organisation key. You should leave this as [[system_orgKey]] so that it is automatically populated by Actionstep.

For your reference, you can see your organisation key by hovering over you organisation name in the top-left menu within Actionstep:
Send At2020-02-14T21:00:00A local date and time to indicate when the SMS should be sent.

Time is in 24 hour format as per ISO8601.

If this is left empty, the SMS will be sent immediately.

Konekta will attempt to parse this as a local date and time based on the location/time zone specified in Send At Time Zone ID.

For example, the sample value will be sent at 9pm on the 14th Feb 2020, because Send At Time Zone ID is set to Australia/Brisbane.
Send At Time Zone IDAustralia/BrisbaneUse this to specify which time zone should be used to determine how to process the Send At time.

If Send At is empty, then Send At Time Zone ID is ignored.

If Send At Time Zone ID is empty, then the value in Send At is sent directly to the Burst SMS service without modification. If the value in Send At contains a date and time, the system will assume it is in UTC.

Valid values are:
  • Any valid Zone ID in this list of Time Zones.
  • Any abbreviated Australian state or territory (case is not important). Specifically: ACT, NSW, NT, QLD, SA, TAS, VIC, or WA.
