Send a Birthday Message

Shortcut searches contacts for anyone with a birthday today, then sends them a birthday message.


Shortcut gathers a list of all your contacts who have a birthday today. For each contact: it will ask you if you'd like to send them a message. If they have a nickname it will ask you if you'd like to address them by their first name or their nickname. It will then display a list of phone numbers for you to choose where to send them message. Finally it will display the message on your screen, allowing you to modify it before sending.

Tip: Save this shortcut to a reminder that runs every morning so that you don't miss anyone's birthday!
