Message Preset

Posted by @mattmaybe, Last updated: 2018-07-03 17:12:05 UTC

Send a message to 4 preset contacts. The draft will be tagged with the contacts name and then a message will be sent to that contact. There is now the option to send via iMessage or through drafts messaging.

Please note you will need to add the contact names and telephone numbers in the scripting section.
