Good Day,

We have developed a mobile app in Mobile Together Designer that allows the user to send a pre defined sms to random mobile numbers in their contacts list.
Question: Is it possible to log / save the mobile numbers user sent SMS to?

Thanking you in advance!

Hi,

please clarify your question: you are saying that you are sending SMS from within MobileTogether. This means that you actually know every number you used to send SMS. What's a problem to save these numbers?

Hi,

Ok my apologies, let me elaborate further:
Yes the app sends SMS within Mobile Together.
The users of the app have an incentive based on the amount of SMSs sent to their friends / family in their contacts list.
The idea is the user can go to their "dashboard" in the app that will shows how many SMSs were sent.
In order for me to render this information to the dashboard, I would need to save the numbers which SMS was sent to (SQL database) and when user opens "Dashboard" Page, a table column will display the "List Count" of the numbers.

I have a button with Control Action set to "Send SMS To:" and checked "Use SMS App". This action then opens the local contacts list on the Mobile. The user then selects / checks random numbers (the contacts user want to send SMS to) and sends SMS.

So my question is: Is it possible to save the contact numbers the user selected in their contact list once SMS has been sent in order for me to execute the "List Count"?

I see now! With your current solution there is no such possibility.

But with the upcoming release (we expect it go live within 2-3 weeks), you will be able to read contacts on mobile device and offer in your app sending SMS directly to already retrieved phone numbers. I.e. the new solution will be more user friendly, because the user will remain all the time within your app, and it will allow you to also track sent SMS easily.
