Sequence Automation Getting Start Guide

What is Sequence Automation ?

Sequence Automation helps to automatically send series of messages to subscribers. i.e Picky Assist can automatically followup customers who made enquiry about any of your product or services.

Let’s explain with an example , a car dealership got a sales enquiry through WhatsApp and obviously they need to followup with the customer to get the sales closed. Picky Assist can do the followup automatically like after 2 hours of the last message it can send a brochure, after 2 days it can send a message with few video reviews and after a week it can send an offer without any human interventions.


Getting Started

You can create a sequence by giving a name and optional description. Click on the Sequence name to start adding series of messages into the sequences



Adding Messages

Now you have to start adding messages into the series which need to send automatically based on the time as set by you.


Step 1

Give A Name to the Message for your internal reference, like “Welcome” “Offer” “Testimonial” etc

Step 2

Compose the message you need to send , can attach media and personalise the message with attributes

Step 3

Specify when the message should be triggered , you can specify the interval in Days, Minutes & Hours from the last message in the series sent, suppose the first message in the series sends after “1 minute” from the subscription time and next message in the series is set to send after 7 days from the last message sent.

Please note the first message in the sequence will be used the user subscribed time i.e when the user sends a first message to your whatsapp / sms number and the remaining message series will follow the last message sent time.

If you dont want to get the messages delivered on odd times then specify the exact time so that even if your customer subscribed at night the further messages from the sequence will not get delivered at night.
