    Hello everyone,

    As of today 10/09/2019 I have spent a silly amount of time watching videos, reading the forums, and essentially reading the entire internet...

    Is there a way to do a simple automation that:

    triggers at a set time
    uses a set pre set message
    sends the message to a pre set person

    All without any human interaction? The automation that I made shows an alert on my iPhone and waits for me to click run.

    Iphone 11promax
    IOS 13.1.2
    Using iMessages

    >workflow on the shortcuts app is:
    Create Personal Automation
    click: Events > Time of day
    click: Next > Add Action
    click: Text > "this is a test message"
    click "+"
    Search and click "Send Message"
    Click the person to send the message
    Make sure "Show when run" is not green"

    Any help?

    I don't have an answer to your question but just wanted to share that I wish Apple offered Shortcuts workshops as part of their "Today At Apple" series. I think they'd be overwhelmed by the number of people wanting to learn about these.

    Hopefully, someone will come along who does now how to write/create shortcuts!
