It’s a simple action, one that I won’t even post because it’s so easy to set up, but I wanted to share the idea in case anyone else is in the same position…
My wife has a pretty severe case of Hyperemesis, and this week has been her second extended stay in the hospital. We have a number of friends and family wanting updates, and messages is the preferred way of contact. I wanted to get the same update info out to a large group of people, but didn’t want to do it with one big group text because that limits everyone’s ability to privately respond and communicate further.
So, I set up an action with 11 messages steps, some with a single address and others with more than one address, depending on the relationship/connection. Then, I can write my update in a new draft, tap on my update action, and then messages loads up with my text and I just have to tap the send button 11 times. It sure beats having to copy and paste text and then hit send all of those times, plus I don’t run the risk of accidentally leaving someone out.
It’s really made a part of this stressful time a lot easier, and for that I am thankful that @greg-pierce has created such a flexible and useful app!
