Can I set up automated response messages?

The following auto-responders are available:

 

  • Greeting message (Web Chat only): Greet your customers with a friendly response when they open your Web Chat widget.
  • Directing to Agent message (WhatsApp only): If no agents are available, an incoming chat is added to a queue and assigned to the first available agent. Manage customer expectations by informing them of this. 
  • Connecting Agent message (Web Chat only): Inform an end-user when they are being connected with an available agent via Web Chat and what the agent’s name is.
  • Connecting Agent message (WhatsApp only): Inform an end-user when they are being connected with an available agent via WhatsApp and what the agent’s name is. 
  • Connecting Agent message (Facebook & Twitter): Manage customer expectations on Facebook and Twitter channels and let them know when they are being connected to the first available agent.
  • End Chat and Opt-Out Keywords message (All Channels): Enable your customers to end a chat or opt-out of the service using specific keywords.
  • Agent Busy message (All Channels): Manage customer expectations by informing customers when all agents are busy.
  • Out of Support Hours message (All Channels): Let customers know they have reached you outside of support hours and that an agent will attend to their chat as soon as possible during core support hours.
  • Session Timeout message (Web Chat only): Inform end-users when their session has timed out after a period of inactivity.
  • Direct Channel message (Facebook only): Direct your customers to chat on a private channel when a Facebook post mention is ended from your Chat Desk.
  • End Chat message (All Channels): This message is displayed to an end-user when either an agent or an end-user closes/ends a chat.
