A). If you are using API, you can go to the Flow section in the left menu of your SMS panel and then download the recently used SMS Contents by clicking on the "Download Templates" button (there might be few more SMS which are not here, so check within your team for more such SMSs).

Q. What is the format of Variable while applying Content Template on DLT platform?
Ans) On every DLT platform, each Variable should be written as {#var#}. If you use any other format of Variable, it will not be considered as Variable and your SMS delivery will be impacted.
Q. What is the character limit in Variable {#var#} while sending SMS?
Ans) The actual value of the variable while sending an SMS will be maximum 20 characters.
Q. Any limit on the number of variables allowed in a single Content Template?
Ans) 4-5 variables are allowed in one Content Template.
Q. How many Headers (Sender Id) can be associated with a Content Template?
Ans) Multiple Headers can be mapped against the same Content Template during registration. This might be different on different DLT platforms.
Q. How much time does it take to get the approval of the Content Template from the DLT platform?
Ans) Due to a large number of requests you may face some delay in approval, however, a minimum of 2-4 business days wait is expected.

Ans) Yes, Brand Name is compulsory in all kinds of SMS content: Promotional, Transactional, and OTPs.
Q. Getting rejection on a template with an error "wrong content type selected"?
Ans) Please note, your SMS content should be applied under service implicit or explicit category only. Do not apply under promotional or transactional categories.
Q. Getting rejection on a template with an error "Brand name not added"
Ans) Adding Brand name in an SMS content template is mandatory and should be explicitly mentioned in the SMS body itself.
Ex: Hello {#Var#} Your order with Id {#Var#} has been dispatched for delivery. Team XYZ
Q. Getting rejection on a template with an error "No header associated with the brand name" ?
Ans) This implies that you do not have a Header/ Sender Id of the brand name, you wish to have a template of and hence no- correlation can be built. Ex: If I want to add a template with the brand name Apple, I should have a header related to Apple in my DLT account first, say, iApple.
Note: You cannot apply for a template with your customer's brand name in your DLT account, a new entity registration should be carried out for your customers first.
Q. Have confusion while applying content in service implicit and explicit?
Ans) If you are confused in deciding the SMS content category as Service Implicit or Explicit while applying on the DLT platform, then it is highly recommended to apply the Content Template twice, once with Implicit and once with Explicit. Later, if your Content Template is approved from both of the categories, then kindly use the Template Id of Service Implicit only.

DLT Template scrubbing is LIVE, this means your SMS will FAIL in absence of Template Id.
Hence, we are not submitting your SMS to Operator where your have not mapped Template Id (Error 211) and not deducting your SMS BALANCE as well.
Kindly check the below points regarding DLT compliance:

A. If your templates are approved by DLT, check these points:
-- Map your SMS Content Template in API/Panel
-- Make sure you pass the correct combination of Template Id, Header, and SMS Content (Even special characters in your SMS content should be passed exactly).
-- Make sure you pass less than 30 characters in place of a variable; if you need to pass more than 30 characters apply 2 variables {#var#} {#var#}.
-- Make sure that on DLT you have applied variable only in this format {#var#} and not as ##var##; if applied wrongly, kindly apply the template again.

B. If you have still not applied your Templates on DLT, check these points:
-- Apply under Service Implicit or Explicit option only.
Service Implicit: All kinds of purely Transactional SMS contents like OTPs, Orders, Passwords, etc.
Service Explicit: All kinds of Notification and Promotional contents like Offers, New Launches, etc.
-- Kindly ensure to mention your Brand Name in your SMS Template.
-- Make sure that on DLT you have applied variable only in this format {#var#} and not as ##var##.

These key points should be kept in mind before applying Templates on DLT and before integrating Templates in the SMS API:

1. On DLT, standard format of a VARIABLE is {#var#} and not ##var##; in case you have applied wrongly, kindly apply the Template again.
2. Characters passed in a single VARIABLE should be strictly less than equal to 30 characters; in case you need to pass more than 30 characters apply multiple VARIABLES; ex- {#var#} {#var#} {#var#}.
3. To pass a URL of more than 30 characters in your message content, you should apply multiple VARIABLES without space, to allow more characters; ex- {#var#}{#var#}{#var#}.
