Sending an SMS from a Patient Record

In TM3 you can send an SMS/Text from a Patient/Client record.  To do this open the record and click the Actions button.

Once you click on this you will get a list of different actions that can be performed.  We want to click on Actions and scroll down to the SMS section.  This will include any custom SMS templates that have been added.  

Once you select the appropriate template the window below will appear.  Add information into the body of the text and click Send to send the message.  The main thing to note about an SMS is that if it goes over 160 characters, it will then cost the price of 2 text messages.  If you go over 320 characters it will be the cost of 3 text messages and so on.
