An Important note on the TimeZone used when sending Appointment Reminders.

Timezone determination for a destination address is key to presenting the appointment date time in the attendees local time. Unfortunately with the information we get from Pipedrive it is not always possible to accurately determine the attendees timezone. We determine the country from the attendees mobile number. If you set a Timezone against your Settings record and if the attendees phone is for the same country as you set, we then use your set Timezone as the local Timezone for the attendee. If the above condition is not meet we use a default timezone for the country of the attendees. We write the timezone used into the appointment reminder message beside the appointment date-time.

Create SMS for New SMS Activities

Checking this flag on your Settings creates and SMS activity type in your Pipedrive account. When you create an Activity of type SMS and scheduled sms message will be create in the Intelli SMS application.
