Hi, hope you don't mind asking a stupid question?
We have been very happily sending SMS messages using our Filemaker
database for many years now. We send commands built from the relevant
fields, using the syntax:
It sends the first message, steps on to the next selected individual,
sends their message, etc until all the messages have been sent.
It works fine, but the only thing which causes a problem is that it sends
through the browser on the computer we are working on, and keeps opening
tabs (which can sometimes hang if we are messaging hundreds of people). It
was set up a long time ago, and we were using a very old version of
Filemaker, and so I just left it well alone!! However, we have just
upgraded to the latest version of Filemaker, and I was wondering if there
is now a better way to do it? I am not an expert by any means and don't
really want to start doing major rewrites, but if there is a way of
sending an http command out which bypasses the local browser then that
would make our lives much easier!
Many thanks in advance
