” number is ended in "3456789”
But if you receive a message from "1234567899”, the auto-reply message will NOT be sent because "123456789
9” is NOT ended in "3456789”

Limit the number of times a message can be sent.
You could limit the number of times a message can be sent by selecting an option. This option is in “Advanced Options”.
eg.: you want to limit sending to a maximum of 2 times per person (in the recipient list). Follow the following steps:
+ Go to “Advanced Options”
+ Follow the images below
1. The maximum number of times a message can be sent. The number of times the message can be sent will be less than this number.
2. If you select this box, this is also the most common option, the maximum number of times a message can be sent will be calculated based on the number of times the message being sent to each person and only be counted when the message is sent. So there will be a case where one person has reached the maximum limit of being sent but another has not.
The system will not send to those who have exceeded the limit but will still be able to send to those who have not.
* If you do not check the box, the maximum number of times the message can be sent will be calculated based on the number of times the task is performed. And the system will not send anyone if the limit is exceeded.
3. The button on the left shows the details, which is only displayed when you select the second box. The button on the right is for clearing and resetting the counter, all the number of times the messages are sent will be deleted and re-counting from the beginning.

This feature is only available in the task of auto-reply messages and could be used when you do not want the message to be answered immediately.
Note: In case of any messages that are delayed sending while restarting your phone, those messages will not be sent as resulted from being deleted from the system's memory after the restart.
eg.: The reply message is sent only after 15 seconds of receiving the message/or call
The reply message is sent after 15 seconds of receiving a message/or call
Send multiple messages with different contents.
This feature can be used to send/reply to or with a variety of contents for each time of sending. This feature is in “Advanced Options”.
The following example will help you understand how to set up this feature: You want to send the "2nd message", the "3rd message" and the "Final message” as shown below.
The task's main message will be used for the first attempt. But the next times, the "2nd message" and the "3rd message" in the order from the top as shown in the image will be used. Empty messages will be ignored and not counted. If the last message is not empty, it will be used as a message to send for the remaining times of sending.
As shown above, the order will be as follows:
- First time: the main content of the task.
- 2nd time: "2nd message"
- 3rd time: "3rd message"
- 4th time: "Final message"
- 5th time: "Final message"
- 100th time: "Final message"
Suggestions: you can combine with the Limit the number of times a message can be sent
feature to send the reply message as desired.
