BUG: Repetition of sent messages in Sent out message list

image

Dear mobile team,

I believe a bug we once had of repeating sent messages is reoccurring in DHIS 2.16 (Build revision: 16487 Build date: 2014-10-02 02:04). Not sure if this has been reported as yet as well.

When i send a group message to say 6 people, I am going to see the message repeated up to 6 times in the sent out messages as shown above. The only good thing is that the message is only sent out once and not repeated. Otherwise in cases where we count the sent out and received messages for billing purposes, I am hoping this is not repeated in the database as well.

regards,

Hi Sam,
I think this is what it is. When you send a group SMS, it actually has to send separate message to each of the recipient in the group (unlike MMS which can send one message to multiple recipient) .

Good morning Long,

I did not use the SMS module, i sent the message using the DHIS2 messages to a usergroup of people where i had enabled both receiving sms & email notifications.

I am wondering if this can be changed so that we only see one message instead of multiple messages. Otherwise, if i have to send to all the districts in Uganda, then It is going to be repeated 112 times in my sent items.

regards,
