Step 7. Communicate with your drivers.

'POST' to the messages endpoint to send location, text, or an attachment to drivers.

Messaging drivers is a frequent part of your core activities. Use our messages object to send and receive messages. You can use this feature to send location, text, or an attachment. Each message includes a read receipt relaying whether the message has been sent, delivered to the user's device, or read by the user.

Send a Message: POST

POST to the /messages API to send a message to a user in the fleet on behalf of any fleet admin. This bidirectional communication feature sends messages to the driver’s Motive app.

The sender_id is required, along with receiver_ids and body. To specify a different sender, use the X-USER-ID header, as discussed in the API Overview section

The response echoes the details of the POST call.
