Hi,

 

I've developed a new OFFICE SIGN IN database to run on an iPad Pro, which automatically emails the visitors details to the selected user. 

 

They have now asked if it is possible to send a SMS to the selected team members mobile as well as the email that is generated.

 

I have a table called: "Directory" which holds (5) fields  of the Employees contact details

Name

Position

Direct (office telephone)

Mobile

 

The iPad Pro has a SIM chip (and can currently send SMS)

 

Is there a way to write a script that uses the iPad's SMS system to send to the employees mobile number?  - or do i have to use a plugin?

 

Currently my script just uses send mail with these details.
