Allow Driftbot to schedule meetings for you while you're away

by Jacob Shobin

Now you can have your Drift Bot start to respond to chats when you are away!

This setting allows your Drift Bot to jump in and prompt the end user to leave a message or schedule a time with the person they were hoping to chat with!

Note, this bot will jump in when the conversation was started from your Drift Profile or from conversations started using the Drift Email Extension
Also, this bot will jump in for you in the playbook, 'Greet Outbound Prospects You Emailed'

To turn this setting on, go to your Settings in your Drift App --> Driftbot --> Turn on 'Allow Driftbot to respond to chats when you're away'

After one minute, your Drift Bot will jump in to conversations started when Chats are started that come in from your Profile Page or from conversations started using the Drift Email Extension : 

Also, if you don't have a calendar connected to your Profile, users will only be offered to leave a message.

This feature is only available on the Team plans and above.

Happy Drifting!
