Create a basic broadcast comprises several simple steps. Step 1, name your broadcast. Step 2, set up the message to broadcast, maximum 1000 characters. Step 3, schedule the broadcast. It can be immediately or a specific date range to fulfil your business needs. Step 4, determine to switch on or off the Human Agent Tag. When it is off, by default you are only allowed to respond to user messages within 24 hours. When it is on, it will allow you to broadcast message as a human agent, so that you can respond to user messages as much as 7 days of their messages. Please only use human agent tag when a user's issue cannot be resolved in the standard messaging window. Step 5, click "Next" to continue.
If you have set a custom field to users and wish to display its value in the broadcast message, you can input {{customFields.fieldvalue}} to the message field as Step 2. If the custom field that you want to display is "membership", where the value is "diamond" for one user, then you can input {{customFields.membership}}. When the broadcast message is blasted, that user will see the value "diamond" in the message.
