Message content truncated in Dashboard


  • Why can I not see the full SMS body in the Dashboard?
  • Why is my message content truncated?


Messages with over 50 consecutive characters without a space between them will be truncated at 50 characters and suffixed with a ...

e.g. ThisisalongmessagewithconsecutivecharacterssentusingNexmo'sMessagingAPI would display as Thisisalongmessagewithconsecutivecharacterssentusi ... in Dashboard.

Whereas This is a long message with consecutive characters sent using Nexmo's Messaging API would be displayed without being truncated.


If you need to view the full message body, this will still be available in the message download report, or when querying using the Developer API.
