Learn how to send an SMS message to one or more people.

 

 

If you have permission to send SMS messages and SMS has been activated in settings then you will see an SMS button on many pages. By default, messages will be sent from the mobile number that was registered when your UCare account was created. You can change this number by changing your access.

If a Sender ID has been added under SMS settings then that will also see it listed as a From option.

Note: By default the max length of messages is 160 for normal characters or 70 for non-Latin/Unicode characters. If you would like to send longer messages you can change this in SMS settings.
