Find out how to create and use quick responses in your SMS conversations. 

Quick responses are templates you can insert into your one-to-one conversations. They save you time, as you won't need to retype the same messages over and over again. You can also edit a quick response before it sends so that it can be more personalized to an individual's situation. 

Before you begin

There are a few important things to remember before using quick responses:

  1. You must have already set up SMS
  2. At least one opted-in SMS subscriber must have started a SMS conversation before you can add a quick response
  3. You can only respond to someone if they are an SMS subscriber
  4. Quick responses are billed the same as any other message in your SMS billing plan
