7-Day Reply Window

"Human Agent" Message Tag

By Default, you have up to 7 days to reply to a customer's inquiry.

Time counts are determined from the "Last Contact (Time) from Customer". If the customer happens to send a new message, the 7-day reply window count will be reset.

"Account Update" Message Tag

After 7 days, all messages sent on Facebook Messenger will be tagged with the account update tag.

Facebook requires all users to strictly follow the rule: businesses are not allowed to send any promotional materials with these tags.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I request older conversations to load into SleekFlow?


You can click "Action" and "Sync History" to retrieve your 100 most recent conversations.

For other conversations, the older messages shall appear when the contact sent a new message to you.

What should I do if Facebook messages do not appear?

These happen when page permissions are dropped by Facebook if the Facebook Page admin changes their password or due to other unexpected reasons. Please disconnect the channel and repeat the setup steps above to grant permissions again.
