Identify if a WhatsApp Connect user is within 24 hour reply window

In WhatsApp Connect, messages are only sent to the user, if they replied to a message within the last 24 hours

For example, if a user sent a message to a WhatsApp Connect user and the user was last seen as active 24 hours and 1 minute ago, the messages will be queued and will wait until the user replies once more to activate a new 24 hour window.

This time limit ensures that the WhatsApp Connect user is still willing to chat to the sender of the message.

A quick way to identify if a user is within the 24-hour window is to check their status in the Discussion Room Members window from inside WhatsApp Connect. An Active status means the user is within the 24-hour window and a Pending status means they are outside of the 24-hour window.



Full details on WhatsApp Connect can be found in the Admin and User Guide.
