How Do I Manually Send SMS (Text) Confirmation Requests?

If you have the MyPatientScheduler Text option, the Frontdesk Administrator can Manually Send SMS (Text) Confirmations at any time. All messages are sent immediately, bypassing your standard SMS configuration settings.

MyPatientScheduler also generates and sends SMS messages automatically based on the your SMS Module configuration settings.

Appointment Confirmation requests sent by Text can only be generated one time. Once a patient receives a reminder / confirmation request text message, no other confirmation request text message for that appointment will be generated or sent by MyPatientScheduler, either manually or automatically.
