Intelligent Responses

Intelligent Responses are the words that trigger an Automatic Response to be sent. Entries are listed alphabetically by text trigger.


Single or Multiple Word Keywords

Intelligent Responses can include one word or multiple word (phrase) keywords, which allows you to trigger Automatic Responses that are more focused and will reach the recipient at the appropriate time.

For example, currently if a company is using the keyword "hours" to trigger an automatic response that includes the hours of the company, it might inadvertently be sent it to a recipient who is sharing their availability for a service call, such as "I will be home between the hours of..." Using keyword phrases, the company can set up different responses for “hours are you open” and “between the hours of” and every other necessary variation.
