How to select specific numbers for Crash Alert?

I'm trying to set up Automatic v2.9.4 with a Gen2 adapter for my daughter (in preparation for also using License+). I've got the app set up and working with the adapter so now I'm trying to add Crash Alert contacts.

The problem is, when selecting a contact from her list, the app is using the first number on the contact, which is a work number for my wife and I and not our mobile numbers. Thus, we can't receive the texts.

Short of modifying her contacts, how can I get the Automatic app to use the proper number for the Crash Alert contacts?

Thanks.

Hi windracer,

Unfortunately the app will always pick the main or first number from the contact that you have selected. You would have to change the numbers in the actual contact in order for the app to pick the right one.

Thanks Derrick. Seems like an easy design fix (pick the contact, then select the number) rather than forcing the user to order their numbers in a specific way. But I'll use the workaround.
