Out of Office Notice

We would like to advise you to set up an out of office message outside of service hours. Your customers will receive this message automatically if they contact you outside of service hours. So the customer knows when he is put through to an employee, that he will not be helped at that moment.


The chatbot naturally helps the customer outside of office hours. It just keeps on going!

  1. In the upper right corner of the platform, go to settings
  2. Choose Out of office Message at the bottom
  3. Type an out off office message
  4. Set the times when you will be present
