It is sometimes useful to have a cell that will send a pre-set SMS message from The Grid 2, for example:
Message: “I’ve finished for the day. Please come and pick me up from college.”
Note: you will already need to have your mobile phone configured for SMS messages with The Grid 2 for this to work.
You can do this using a series of commands in The Grid 2:
- Open your chosen user, browse to Edit in the menu bar and select Editing Mode.
- Select the cell you want to add the commands to and press Edit cell from under the Cell Options heading on the left hand side.
- Select add a command.
- Select Mobile Phone from within the Categories… button.
You need to add the following commands. The commands are carried out in the order that they are listed, so you need to add them in this order.
- SMS Workspace

Start a new SMS message.
