Once you have the SMS feature enabled, there is very little configuration needed to get up and running.

The most important part is supporting the auto-logging aspect to your CRM. When a text message is sent from or received to Jiminny, an activity is automatically created in your CRM under the appropriate record. For tracking purposes, we also set the activity type depending on the direction of the message (inbound vs outbound). 

We've included instructions for each supported CRM as well as Jiminny itself.
