How many buttons can I attached into a single message?
You can create as many buttons as you like in 1 message.
Menu settings->edit numOfButtons (default = 2).
This number is to set the max buttons shown, but if you don’t use all, you can leave it empty.
Example: you put numOfButtons = 10, and you create a message that only use 3 buttons, you can leave the other 7 empty.
I see there are 2 textbox on each button. How do I use it?
I will refer them as “topTextBox” and “bottomTextBox” to explain it better.
topTextBox = the actual text that is shown on the button, I will not explain further on this one, this is self explanatory.
bottomTextBox = the function, now I want to explain this one further, please read next question below!
What are the functions that I can use with bottomTextBox?
There are 3 functions available:
1. as a hypertext/html link. If you put any url starts with “http” or “https”, it will automatically create a button that will redirect to that url. This means you can put “https://wa.me/170712345678?text=Hi”, it will open whatsapp-web (on computer browser) or whatsapp app (on phone).
2. as a phone dialer. If you put any phone number starts with “+”, it will automatically create a button that will open the phone dialer on your phone (will not work on computer browser)
3. this is very interesting feature and I am guessing most of you come here just because of this feature. This button feature will create an auto chat bot. Let’s read the next question!
How to make a chat bot using buttons?
This chat bot will create a “tree” like structure. We will need to create the main menu, let’s make an “info” keyword.
Go to Autoreply menu -> add new autoreply
Next we will create 2 new keywords “yesNewUser” and “noNewUser”
After this, we will create 4 more keywords: “yesQuestion”, “noQuestion”, “officeAddress”, and “officePhone”.
And so on, and so on……
