Phantom SMS messages
I recently (yesterday) began implementing SMS workflow messages. At the moment, I have three app users set to receive SMS messages from one of my apps. I am not one of those users but, I did use my phone number while testing the feature setup yesterday.
This morning my phone number received 3 SMS messages from the AppSheet number consisting of ‘Test Message.’ The current message that my app is configured to send is not ‘Test Message’. There is no record of this message in the Audit Log of my app. No record of the workflow rule being triggered today.
Is it a safe assumption that AppSheet staff are testing the SMS features? How then is it that my phone number was sent a message and not my app users? Is this some sort of bug?
I did realize while testing yesterday that the workflow rule that fires the message seems to run from the device. I initially thought the workflow rules ran on the AppSheet servers. This fact could be the cause of the phantom message, maybe?..
My app is not set to sync on start. It is possible that a user with a stale app version triggered a previous workflow which sent the messages. It doesn’t quite explain it as there were three messages sent near simultaneously and no record of the workflow being triggered but, either that or AppSheet testing is the best explanation I can come up with.
Does anyone else have any ideas?
