Hi FM Community.

 

I am a 'newbie' so please be kind to me  

 

I wondered if anyone can help.

 

Scenario:

 

  • I would like to use an FM Script (that is launched on my iPad) to send multiple SMS's through my iPhone.
  • I do not want to use a 3rd party service/plug in.
  • I understand the limitation that I will have to physically press send on my iPhone for each recipient.

 

By looking through a number of previous posts, I have worked out how to send an SMS from FMGo (on my iPad/iPhone) by using the Open URL Command:

 

sms:<number>&body=<body text>

 

This works perfectly  

 

I now want to try & use Variables in place of <number> & <body text> in order to automate from the results of a search.

 

 

But I just cannot get the Variables to work/be recognised  

 

 

Any advice welcomed.
