Canned Responses are an easy way of quickly responding to common questions and other messages. Some basic uses for canned responses could be to reply to common questions, quickly give out information or complex instructions, or even making sure your technicians are giving out the right information by writing the messages for them as a canned message.
How to setup Canned Responses
You can manage your Canned Responses by navigating to Shop Settings > Manage Canned Responses > Add Canned Responses. Once there you’ll see a list of your existing Canned Responses if not then there a button to show some “Samples of Canned Responses” to help you start going.
You can add new Canned Responses by clicking on the green “Add Canned Response” button in the top left.
