"Hi Will, thanks for writing. There is not a way to mass delete messages in V1. This is one of the problems we were working to solve in Version 2, where we do allow this feature, so you may want to consider the upgrade. Cheers."

My populations of interest are African-American MSM, and ethnic and/or sexual minority youth. I am currently working on applying mobile technologies in HIV clinical trials, and developing theoretical models for New Media-based sexual health management and public health practice.

Optimal computer settings for frontlinesms on Mac and Windows

We are running frontlinesms on several computers (Mac and Windows). Each computer is a little different in age and specs, but all can run frontlinesms. When installing frontlinesms on the Mac it wouldn't work properly until we changed the settings to 32-bit mode. Are there any other computer settings like these that would help frontlinesms run more smoothly?

Thank you,

-Will

Reminders plugin not sending SMS after program is closed or computer is turned off

Hello, we are running frontlineSMS on both Mac's and PCs. On both systems, if frontlineSMS is closed or if the computer shuts down the reminders no longer send. Then we have to re-create them all over again. Is there anything we can do about this? This is particularly problematic for our computers in South Africa.

Are there any optimal setting for Macs and PCs when using frontlineSMS

Thank you for your help.

-Will
