Report: Message Log  

Overview

The Message Log is a cumulative list of messages sent and received. This is the history of all SMS-interactions.

Go to Reports, and find the Messaging section to access the Message Log. 

There are many Types of SMS messages captured in the log. 

  • Broadcast - outgoing message content
  • Reminder - scheduled messages
  • Survey - collects data from incoming messages
  • Keyword - a word or letter that triggers an action in HQ including opening a form, sends a reply, escalates an alert. 
  • Other - messages from an unrecognized source

A single message can be tagged as multiple types.  For example, a survey that is submitted as a structured keyword will be tagged as survey and keyword.   

Filtering the Report

The report will let you filter to view a specific set of messages.  You can filter by:

  • Date range of the message
  • Type of message (Broadcast message, keyword, reminder, survey, etc.)
  • Location

Message Log includes: 

  • Timestamp - date/time from the server (shown in the project's timezone.)

  • Phone Number - phone number of the phone involved in the interaction
