Leave a Private Note or a Message in a SMS Conversation

A private note allows for members to communicate privately in the context of a conversation. While the messages are shown in the channel, they are not sent by SMS to the contact. They remain a little note in the midst of the text conversation to help you make a note about the proceedings for yourself and other members. It can be useful to ask a question to another member and get a reply without leaving the page. For solo plans, you can record actions taken or conclusions after a conversation is finished.

To leave an internal private note for your and other members:

  1. Select an existing SMS conversation channel
  2. Select Private Note under the messaging input box. When private note is selected, the messaging box will become yellow like a sticky note.
  1. Once you have written a private note in the input box, click on the ADD button to add your private note in the SMS conversation
  2. Your private note will appear in yellow and will be visible only to you and your team members when viewing the conversation

Your notes can only be viewed by members of your team. Private notes are helpful for tracking information and collaborating during customer support communication.
