An iSMS flow is an exchange of messages between the end-user and the eSpace.

You can add the following elements to SMS Screens (Wait Message, Send Message or Start iSMS):
Input parameters: used to send data between SMS messages. How?
Local variables: used when you have to create variables whose scope is the SMS message itself. How?
Screen preparation: used to execute an action before processing the SMS message. How?
Screen actions: used when you want to design actions that are only available inside the SMS message. How?
These operations are available in the Screen Menu, in the Menu bar when the Send Message is selected in the Content Canvas, or by right-clicking the Send Message in the eSpace tree.
The Send Message request is issued asynchronously, the message is queued to the SMS Gateway and afterwards sent to the operator SMS as soon as possible.
