Extend messaging window from 24 hours to 7 days

When communicating with a customer on Facebook or Instagram, you have 24 hours to wait for the customer to respond. If more than 24 hours pass after the last message, the operator's message is not delivered until the customer writes again.

Now you can increase this time from 24 hours to 7 days!

You can send messages with operator support only for issues that cannot be solved in the standard messaging window - for example, if the company is closed for the weekend or if it takes more than 24 hours to solve the problem.

Features of use

  • The option is only available in the Facebook: Messages and Instagram Direct channels.
  • When the Extend messaging window from 24 hours to 7 days option is enabled, you cannot send customers messages with ads, discounts, coupons, auto-messages (automation rules) or content not related to the user's request. Otherwise, your Facebook or Instagram account may be automatically blocked by Meta (Facebook).
  • Bitrix24 will not be able to unblock your account. So do not use this option if you are not sure that your managers will comply with Meta rules.

How to enable the option

You can enable this option only in Instagram Direct amd Facebook messages channels.

At the channel connection stage, enable the Extend correspondence window from 24 hours to 7 days option.
