Configure Keywords

To comply with industry standards, you must respond to keywords for HELP & STOP. Any user who opts-out using the STOP keyword must be added to an opt-out list (blacklist) and must not be sent any further messages until or unless they opt back in. You can configure mandatory keywords for the three keyword types provided. These are:

  • Opt-out
  • Opt-in
  • Help

For each keyword type, some default keywords have already been pre-defined. You can also create new ones following industry-specific norms.

Create keywords using the following guidelines:

  • Use Alphabets
  • Do not add spaces
  • Do not include special characters

When a customer uses the keywords defined under the Opt-out keyword type, they will be opted out or blocked from receiving messages for all campaigns and other activities. You cannot send any more messages to all such customers.

Similarly, when a customer uses the keywords defined under Opt-in keyword type, they choose to opt-in for receiving messages from any team within the organization.

You can define separate keywords to help customers opt-in for specific content type messages, for example, notification or promotions. These keywords will be considered for receiving consent for that specific content-type.

Content-Type opt-ins are useful in ensuring that you can continue sending messages to customers for a specific content-type. Therefore, in case the customer is applying for a blanket opt-out instruction, in the opt-out confirmation message they receive, you specify the content-type opt-in they can send if they wish to continue receiving messages for that specific content-type.
