You can view and download a log of your sent SMS messages from your OVHcloud Control Panel. This guide will explain how to do this.
- Access to the OVHcloud Control Panel.
- An OVHcloud SMS account with at least 1 sent SMS.
The log records the date, time, sender, recipient and contents of the sent SMS.
The Control Panel can only display the last 6 months of your log. To view older messages, go to Step 2: downloading the sending log as a CSV.
Step 1: viewing the log in your Control Panel
Log in to the OVHcloud Control Panel, then select
Telecom (1). Next, click
SMS on the left (2), and select your SMS account (3).
SMS tab (4), then
Sending Log (5).
You can click on the ‘Date’ column on the left to sort your log by send date.
... heading at the end of each SMS allows you to view or delete the message.
To delete several SMS messages at once, tick the boxes next to each message. The
Delete the SMS selected button will appear above the log.
Filter button allows you to filter your search by sender (if you have several senders) or by recipient.
Step 2: downloading the sending log as a CSV
Click on the
Actions button above your log then on
