Text in Church allows you to send yourself a test message of any of the automated workflow steps.
In order to send a test message, first make sure your information is saved as a person record in TIC. Inside the group and automated workflow steps, then inside the message you have the option to send a Test Message.
Get the automated workflow step set up as you desire. Then save the step. Come back into the message and click the Send Test Message button at the top right. A pop up box will ask which person you want it sent to and you can search for your person record in the system.
Sending test messages of automated workflows just allows you to see what the message will look like when sent.
