Out of office message

Do you have a chatbot?

The chatbot also answers questions from your customers outside office hours! When a chatbot has not yet learned a question, the conversation is forwarded to an employee. The customer will then see an out-of-office message with your office hours and know that his question will be dealt with later.

Note: If you are absent for a whole day, you can enter a from/to time that is equal to each other. For example from 00:00 to 00:00.
