What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

AWS (SNS Service) Makes SMS Easy!

The library offered for VS makes this super easy to use. Integration is the key here, with a valid AWS account the SNS library programmatically offers a quick and very effective way of sending out messages via the SNS service. This isn't necessarily a knock on AWS, we used a different provider previously and the same sort of legal red tape existed, but it is a bit of a pain waiting around for the powers that be on the cell networks approving campaigns for SMS.

SNS notification service!

Its event based service and it helps to notify your end user or any other amazon service which is truly amazing. There are alot of system design that requires to notify end user or aws services which comes in built-in with SNS that is very huge plus point. SNS have limitation of 256 kb some architecture design needs to notify end user or lets say push specific bundle of data to different aws service then 256 kb is too less.

Good but a little lacking!

The best thing about Ooma is the great and helpful customer service. Every time I have a problem the customer service department is there to help and provide support. There desktop office phones are also very good quality and the voice is very clear. SMS/Text messaging is unreliable sometimes

Reliable for our programmable SMS needs!

I like how Twilio drives our user authentication process through a single API that does the job of an otp ( one-time password ), while also guarding our verification process against artificially inflated traffic attacks by continuously monitoring our current and previous sms traffic behaviour. Twilio has consistently not only met but often surpasses the requirements and expectations.

Go to for your Authentication!

Very easy to use, with a ton of information available on how certain functions work and why. The help center is very comprehensive such that a beginner could navigate the platform with just research. Navigation through different parts of the platform can prove to be difficult due to some of the placements of things not being as intuitive as others. this makes brand management a bit more difficult.
