SMS by ZapierSend SMS (Legacy)

Lawyers are always on the go—attending depositions, at the courthouse, or at client meetings—so you’re not always able to check Clio for message notifications. With Zapier, you can have an SMS sent to your phone whenever a new communication is recorded on a matter.

How it Works

  1. Zapier watches for new communications in Clio
  2. When a new communication is added, Zapier sends a customized SMS to your phone

What You Need

  1. Clio account
  2. Phone with SMS support
