Sending a text message from the User Console

Learn about sending text messages from the user console to a selected user or to a group.

You can send text messages to a specific user or to any group defined in your system.

Your administrator can control whether text messages will be received by group members working at a different site. For example, if a user in a Trauma Team group at site A is working at site B at the time a text message is sent to that group, the user working at site B would not receive the message. The exception is that users in the Global site will always receive group messages.
