On the Send Geofence Event page, click Allow on the prompt to Know your location.

Demo

After 1-2 seconds (sometimes this can take up to 1-2 minutes), you’ll see the coordinates, city and country of your approximate location. Once the coordinates are shown, you have to enter your Orchestration eventID from 1. In this example, the eventID is d9b5069cebd47bb3394e192da031d933a9e10d67046dadde999ec7401eb7bd51.

If it takes too long to get your location dynamically, or if it doesn’t work, you can also fill out your city manually in the input field.

Demo

Click Send Geofence Event. You’ll get a visual confirmation when the Geofence Event has been sent.

Demo

You should then receive an SMS on the mobile phone number that was attached to your Real-time Customer Profile. The SMS will depend on the current weather and the temperature, just like you configured in your Journey.

NOTE

Twilio doesn’t support Indian Mobile Numbers, so if you have an mobile phone number starting with +91, you won’t receive any SMS.

Demo

The same message will also be sent to the Adobe Hands-On Lab Slack channel. Your trainer is able to show you the received messages in the Slack channel.
