Patient reminder SMS not sending

Hi,

I am having trouble with setting up a SMS reminder that should be sent to a TEI before their next appointment (next stage) within the tracker program.

The TEI has a cellphone number (Tracked entity attribute, with a “Phone number” value type and aggregation set to “None”)

The Tracker program’s notification has been set up as follows:

The problem is that no notifications are being sent to the TEI and I am not sure whether I have set it up incorrectly in either the Tracked Entity Attribute or the Program notification.

We are running on version 2.30 and have set up a SMS Service Configuration that successfully sends SMS notifications to users within an Org tree or Org group.

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated and I remain available in case additional information is required.

Kind regards,

Andre

Hello @ACoetzer1988,

I hope you are well. Did you manage to get a workaround for this? Tagging my friend @prosper to advise on what might be missing here.

Best,
James.

Are your phone number values well formed? And two, is your SMS gateway well set up for MTs? You’d want to ensure that these are fine. Then proceed to the stack traced and see what could be the problems.

Thank you for the help. I turns out that the program rule that triggered the notification was not well formatted and thus did not trigger any sms notification.

Upon simplifying the program rule I got the notification to send, so now I just need to revise the program rule and hopefuly avoid the previous mistakes in the formatting.

Kind regards,

Andre

Thanks for the guidance.
