For Scheduled Premium users we have a feature that allows you write and schedule messages that get sent automatically through iMessage, WhatsApp, Telegram and Email and through your own number.
How does it work? It's easy! Follow these steps for iOS:
Schedule and automatically send messages through iMessage, WhatsApp & Telegram - from your own number.
Step 1: Download & Install the Scheduled app for iOS.
Step 2: Open the Scheduled app and follow all steps in the onboarding. Make sure both the Scheduled Reminder Shortcut and the Scheduled Automation Shortcut are installed.
When you open Shortcuts, you should see this:
Step 3: Purchase a Premium subscription, if you haven't already done so.
Step 4: Create a Personal Automation which checks daily if there are scheduled messages to send automatically. You can find more details about setting Personal Automations in this article: https://help.scheduledapp.com/en/articles/6385393-how-to-create-a-personal-automation
Step 5: Schedule your first Auto Send message for iMessage, WhatsApp, Telegram or Email by clicking on 'Add new' at the bottom of the screen and select "Automation Message". Hooray!
IMPORTANT: This feature enables you to automatically send messages through iMessage, WhatsApp, Telgram, Email and SMS. You need a Premium Subscription in order to use this feature. You don't need credits for this feature. However, to prevent the sending of spam messages, you may schedule a maximum of 30 messages per day.
Schedule and send message through SMS
Note: not from your own number for US citizens
Click on 'Add new' at the bottom of the screen and select "Automated SMS or Email"
Choose the contact or group you want to send to
Type your message
Schedule date, time and choose whether you want it to repeat or not
Turn on the Auto Send by clicking the slider
Click on 'Schedule message' and you're done! Easy peasy!
Note: Send message through SMS will cost you 1 credit per sms.
Unfortunately, Auto Send is not available for the free version of the app. That's because when you send a message through Auto Send, it is sent through a SMS gateway, which requires a small fee. You buy credits so we can pay that fee. Without it, we couldn’t offer you the Auto Send feature. We wish we could change this, but sadly we are not wizards.
