Missing field in Send SMS in

I’m trying to use the action Send SMS in However, it is missing a field for DID. When I test it, the error I get is:

Failed to create a sms in

The app returned "This is not a valid DID".



From their documentation ( the required parameters are:

did         => [Required] DID Numbers which is sending the message (Example: 5551234567)
dst => [Required] Destination Number (Example: 5551234568)
message => [Required] Message to be sent (Example: 'hello John Smith' max chars: 160)


I tried to use Text in Formatter by Zapier to create the field/parameter:

transform Default Value

input: did

default value: 5551234567

but that doesn’t seem to work. Testing it just outputs “did” without the value.

It seems creating a custom action ( would be pretty straightforward here. However, Custom Action (Beta) is not available in the event dropdown menu either.
