RE: [askref] Set SMS auto-responder for after hours Kelli Herm 20 Nov 2015 09:04 EST
The directions were actually a little different than what I saw. I was not able to click on the SMS tab right after I found my library, but had to click on edit queue under actions to get to the tabs (this step was missing).
I wanted to leave a message that will be sent at all times instead of just when we are unavailable so I used the section at the bottom that said Autoresponder text and crafted my own message. Is that correct? I am hoping it will be sent to the patron every time they receive a text so they know that they will receive a response within 24 hours. Most patrons expect an immediate response when they send a text message but we are not able to monitor it all day.
