An auto-reply lets your customers know that you've received their message, and will get back to them shortly. When a customer sends you an email, Groove will send an auto-reply message to the customer immediately confirming receipt of their email. This auto-reply will only trigger on the first message of a new conversation -- if the customer is replying to an existing conversation, the auto-reply will not trigger multiple times.

Enabling or editing the auto-response

By default, Groove does not turn on an auto-response when a new mailbox is created. To add or edit the auto-reply message, go to your Settings > Conversations > Mailboxes

To enable your auto-response simply toggle the on/off button to on. Groove starts you off with a standard reply.  You can edit the reply, or make any changes to the message you'd like. 

Auto-Reply Variables

A selection of variables are supported in both the subject and body of your auto-reply message. These variables will automatically insert certain details into your auto-reply message whenever it triggers.
