Messaging Offline Associates

There is a small disclaimer in the message composer that reads:

{Associate name} is not currently online and will receive this chat message via text or email according to their preference.

Offline disclaimer

If the recipient is online (logged-in to the Web Office), they can immediately message back through Team Chat.

You can see if a team member is online if they have a green dot by their name.

The disclaimer’s preferences are the notification settings for offline messages in the Associate’s Web Office (Settings > Communication). They can choose to receive these messages via text or email.
