Hi everyone. Can Appsheet directly trigger sending SMS using the stock Android/Iphone Messenger? I mean not using Twilio.

Outside of a workflow? Yes.

Hey Steve … how would appsheet do the SMS without Twilio?

(Steven Coile) #6

It uses the native SMS app, @Mary_Jane_Pender

OK, so as long as I am on my mobile phone or tablet I can send an SMS (text) message from my Appsheet app.

How would appsheet do this outside of an AppSheet workflow.

Appreciate getting the details on this Steve.

@Mary_Jane_Pender If you have a Phone-type column, the app gives you the option of sending an SMS when the column is displayed.

is there a way in Workflow to send SMS via the native SMS app? like if there’s a new row, Appsheet will automatically send text to a phone number.

@dax_2018 Ah, no. Sorry.
