Script which sends a (text) message (iMessage) without opening Message app?

actions

#1

Hi, is it possible, via script, to send a message to a preset recipient without opening the Message app and hitting send?


#2

Looking for the same solution.
Ever get a response or figure out how to do this?

Thanks!

If you read through the scripting documentation for Message, the send() function information makes explicit reference to being able to cancel and there are no properties or parameters described that would override this.

If it is more important to not tap than to do it purely in Drafts’ scripting, then you could use the Run Shortcut action where your custom Shortcut includes the Send Message step with the Show When Run option set as off.

Hope that helps.
