Text sharing is one of the best ways to keep a consistent message across multiple devices. This allows you to share files, links, photos and other information quickly between your iPhone, iPad, Mac, PC, Android phone or tablet without the hassle of manually copying it to each device. It also lets you work in a more productive way with your team by creating specialized SMS inboxes where different questions can be assigned to a specific person or group such as Sales, IT or Customer support.
For example, if a guest sends an IT question to your entire support team, you can assign it to the IT person by double tapping and holding that message. Then you can immediately respond to it with a canned answer, or create a task and assign it to a particular member of your team. This will help your team work much more efficiently and increase their productivity.
When someone shares content with you, it will appear in the Shared with You section of supported apps, Messages search and in the Details view of the conversation. You can also pin the content so it always appears at the top of the list in Messages.
This is especially helpful if you want to be able to easily find the content that has been shared with you.

There are several reasons why you might need to share some text, including working with a team of writers or just typing out quick notes on your phone or tablet. In this article we cover the basics of text sharing and explore how to use the built-in features on your iPhone and iPad to make this process as simple and seamless as possible.
The first step in understanding how to share text is figuring out what the author’s purpose is for writing the text. This will help you determine whether the text needs to be analyzed or evaluated, or if you just need to understand how the author intended to present the information.
Once you know who the author is trying to reach, it will also be easier to identify the most important pieces of the text that need to be analyzed or evaluated. For example, you will need to consider if the author is trying to inform or persuade the reader, or if they are just sharing their thoughts and feelings about something that has happened to them. This will influence the tone of the text, as well as the words they use.
