I apologize if this has been asked in the past or not. I can't seem to find a search function on the forums.

My Cleaner has asked if I can send her text messages as well as emails when I have a new booking and cleaning needs to be notified. Is there a facility to do that here in OR. If not, does anyone know of a good way to get the OR generated message through a bridge over to SMS?

Tx.

Hi Glenn,

We don't have built-in SMS messaging yet, though that is on our radar.

Depending on the cleaner's cell carrier, you can probably send her text messages through an email address. Check this out:

If you scroll down, it gives you carrier-specific email addresses that you can email which forward through to a text message.
