Login

How do I log in to my tyntec?

Go to https://my.tyntec.com/auth/login and enter your email. Enter your password below and click “Login.” 

My tyntec account

Great! You’ve logged in for the first time. The dashboard is your command center and you’re in the driver’s seat. The dashboard provides a quick overview of what you can do using your tyntec.

Why does my dashboard look different than the image below here?

If your dashboard doesn’t look like the image below, it’s likely you’ve been invited by a colleague to a pre-existing company account. No worries! Your company is probably already set up and uses at least one service. 

If that is not the case, then your admin has assigned some restrictions to your account. Ask your admin to confirm whether your account has restricted access. 
In all other cases, just let us know. We’re happy to help you, 24/7, 365 days a year.

The Dashboard

What is the Dashboard?

The dashboard is your command center. The dashboard is an overview of your active services and adapts to your usage and needs. Allowing you to navigate quickly to all relevant pages. 

After you have set up a service, for example SMS, the dashboard will adapt to those changes. This means that you will be able to add widgets for each service to personalize your dashboard. They will help you view the current traffic and other information, making it easy to manage your services in an efficient way.

The first login

After your first login, you will find the most relevant information directly on your dashboard. To the right, all services will be visible. From here you can quickly and easily navigate to each service or get more information regarding our services. 

On the left side of your dashboard, you’ll find the main navigation from which almost all services in your tyntec are accessible. The rest of the pages, like ‘My Profile’ and ‘My Company,’ are accessible by clicking your name and company name in the top right corner.

After setting up a service

After you’ve set up a service like SMS, Voice, Mobile Chat, or one of our Number Information Services, your dashboard adapts to the services you are using. 

Now you can add widgets to personalize the dashboard  to your needs and view all the most relevant metrics in one place.

Add widgets to your dashboard

Make your dashboard smart. You can add widgets to have the most relevant information directly accessible on your dashboard.

It’s easy to add a widget! Just click the ‘Add Widget’ button  in the middle of the page. In the overlay that appears,  first select the service, then choose the widget you want  to display. 

Depending on the service/s you’re using,  you will be able to choose from multiple options.  For example:

SMS:  

  • Number of sent SMS

  • Number of received SMS

  • Top 10 destination operators

  • Top 10 originating operators  

  • Top 10 destination countries  

  • Top 10 originating countries

 

Number Information Services:  

  • Portability Check / Number Verification

  • Number of requests

  • Top 10 operators

  • Top 10 countries  

Reporting

What is Reporting?

The ‘Reporting’ section collects all of your reports in one place. After you set up your first product, you can view your reports here. A report gives you a great overview of how many messages have sent over a certain time frame. You also have the ability to filter your report. You can even download your report as an Excel (.xlsx) or .csv file for further customization and number-crunching.

You will need to have at least one service running to access a report.

Please note that the reporting data is updated every 24 hours and is available for SMS, Portability Check, and Number Verification.

Navigate to Reporting

Head over to the Reporting section in the main navigation.

Generate your first Report

Choose a service and the report you want to generate.  Then simply click ‘Generate’!

After your report has been generated, you can view it on the bottom of the page. You can filter the reporting data by a specific keyword, operator, IMSI, or country. 

If you see ‘No data available,’ then you probably collected your first data within the last 24 hours. Come back after 24 hours and try again to display the reporting data. If that still doesn’t work, please get in touch with our Customer Success Team. We’re always happy to help. 

What you can see in your Report

We offer you a comprehensive overview of how many  units you have used and how much the overall price is for each country and operator. Within your reporting table you can find the details on the right. 

 

Product The service you have filtered for. For example: 'SMS 1-way'
Account The account for your service
TT ID The internal tyntec ID
Operator The operator
IMSI The 'International Mobile Subscriber Identity'

Export a Report as .xlsx or .csv

It’s super simple to export your reports as an .xlsx or .csv file to work with the data. Just click the ‘Actions’ button near the top and a menu appears which will let you choose how to export your report. 

Tracker

What is the Tracker?

After you have set up your first service, you can view your Tracker results. The Tracker offers you a more detailed look into single transactions for SMS one-way, Portability Check and Number Verification.

You can view, for example, how long it took to deliver a text message or which operator it was sent to. You can also narrow down your search to a certain time frame, country,  or status of a message. 

Please note that Tracker results are limited to 3,000 results to ensure the best performance for you. Before using the Tracker, you need to set up either SMS one-way / Number Portability Check or Number Verification.
 

Navigate to Tracker

Head over to the Tracker section in the main navigation. 

Generate your Tracker report

To generate your Tracker report, choose a service and the time frame for which you want to generate the Tracker report. Then simply click ‘Generate.’ After your report has been generated you can view it on the bottom of the page. You can filter the reporting data by a specific keyword, operator, country or status. 

If you see ‘No data available’, then you probably haven’t used Send SMS or one of the Number Information services yet. It’s also possible that there is no data for your specified time frame. If you feel that this is not the case and you still see ‘No data available’ in your table, please get in touch with our Customer Success Team. We’re always happy to help. 

What you can see in your Tracker report

The Tracker gives you insights into each individual transaction. You can also specify a certain Transaction ID  or phone number to see the status of your transaction. Within your reporting table you can find the details on  the right. 

Transaction ID The individual identifier for the transaction
Account The account for your service

Finance – Pricing & Coverage

Pricing & Coverage

Transparent pricing is at the core of our business at tyntec. To offer the best prices, tyntec owns its own infrastructure. That is why we not only provide you with a simple list to view the prices, but also offer a Pricing & Coverage API. 

Navigate to ‘Finance’ in the main navigation and click to open the submenu. Then select ‘Pricing & Coverage’ to view the current Pricing & Coverage for the services you’re using.

How can I view the Pricing & Coverage?

There are two ways to view your prices: you can navigate to the ‘Pricing & Coverage’ page within your tyntec, or you can directly plug the Pricing & Coverage API into your system. Whichever works best for you!

What can I do with the Pricing & Coverage API?

The Pricing & Coverage API is the simplest way to request the latest price updates directly. You can easily integrate it into your internal systems. 

How can I use the tyntec’s Pricing & Coverage API?

Head over to the ‘Service’ section of our Tech Docs area. That’s where you can find all technical information on how to use the Pricing & Coverage API.
