This tutorial will introduce keywords.  Keywords are used in Messaging to allow users to report data or request information from CommCareHQCommCare HQ. They do this by sending a special word in an SMS to a gateway connected to CommCareHQCommCare HQ.  This tutorial will build a basic daily activity reporting system.  Users will be able to report the number of houses they visited and participants they counselled on a daily basis. Supervisors will be notified if a given user does not report on their activity in a given data.   We'll also have a keyword that allows a user to request help from their supervisor, which will send the supervisor an SMS messages stating that the user has requested help.
