Hi, I wonder if there is any way I can have the user usage report in the user website.

DateTime/Msg sent/Credit used

Pls help

Hi Byan,

There is no information like this accessible via the user web site.

The information relevant to individual accounts is in the SMS-yyyymmdd.LOG under NowSMS\USERS\username ... as a comma-delimited log file.

But it is, unfortunately, not web accessible.

I have read about using ASPTear to interface with NowSMS. Just wonder how can that help in my problem.

I need to get username from NowSMS html page, then use ASP script to get the log files (based on the particular username). Just if I can get the log, the rest will be much easier for me to come out the report.

Any help on ASPTear or other methods ?

Thank you,
Best Regards
Byan

Hi Byan,

The problem is that the username and password for the web interface is passed via the "Authorization:" header.

And there is no where that this can be presented to an external interface. So I can't think of any good approaches for a work-around to add this functionality.

I think we would actually have to add a hook for allowing the user to view their past activity directly. This is already a feature request on our future enhancements list, so hopefully it will not be too much longer before it is implemented.
