How to use greeting messages
A greeting message is a customizable message that’s automatically sent to your customers when they first message you or whenever they message you after 14 days of inactivity in their chat with you. Enable greeting messages to automatically engage your customers in conversation.
Business Tip: Set up greeting messages like “Hi there! How can I help you today?” to engage your customers in conversation and help them feel welcomed. This can lead to improved customer satisfaction.
