Drafts’ built-in Message action opens in iMessage window with the contents of the current draft. You can also create custom Message Actions if you wish to have single-tap actions that for sending message with pre-defined recipients, or that use a template to wrap the draft content with timestamps or other information.
To create a Message Action, tap the Settings gear icon, select “Message Actions” and the “+” button. Once created, Message Actions can be assigned to an action pane and arranged in the “Manage Actions” view.
The values that can be configured on a Message Action are:
- Action Name [required]: This will be the identifier for the action in the actions list.
- To: A comma-delimited list of phone numbers and/or iMessage enabled email addresses. Use the “+” button to select and email address from your contacts.
- Template: A template for the message body. To included the full text of the draft, use [[draft]]. Read more about supported template tags.
