We're using Mobile connect with a short code to send sms to our employees and would like to prevent from receiving replies on the short code send (make it a one way send). Is it possible to configure this in Mobile connect? Thank you

You can set a "From Name" in your mobile message to prevent the recipient replies the SMS.

Only use From Names for one-way outbound communication, such as alerts, updates, and notifications. Because there’s no long code, recipients can’t respond to messages sent via From Name. To receive a response, set up a separate short code and include that number in the message. To respond, the recipient manually sends a response to the short code that was included in the message.
