"Assign User"
Add wait time, eg. 5 minutes, to send another message/image for the conversation to be more natural.

Assign New Contact to Staff

For the greeting messages, you can also choose to assign to specific staff, so the relevant conversations can be assigned automatically to the relevant staff. Choose "Incoming Messages" as the automation scenario.

"Contact Owner" is unknown.


You can assign the conversation according to the four selects displayed below:
Unassigned: Every user will receive a mobile app notification when it is placed in the Unassigned pool. Whoever is the most recent contact that conversed with the client in Unassigned before they reply, the contact will be assigned to that person. By Queue: New contacts will be assigned to users through round robin. Specific Person: New contacts will be assigned to the specific person. Specific Team: You can pick a specific team then select Unassigned/ By Queue/ Specific Person. The functions of the Unassigned / By Queue in Specific Teams will function the same as above but is restricted to members within the team.
