Receiving messages

What happens if you get a text?

Text messages usually arrive from a previous conversation (they might not if you have shared your SMS number in a marketing email for example). You'll know you've got a new message in two ways:


If you are having a conversation with a customer, the message will show up automatically in the same conversation view (e.g. if you're having a rapid chat).


In any case, you'll get an email letting you know someone has sent you a message. Where possible, we will include the customer's name. You'll also see their message, and the last message you sent to them to provide a bit of context.
Did you know you can reply to the email and it will send a reply back to their phone? What's more, like sending a message, Jiminny will automatically log the activity on the relevant record in your CRM!

An important note: 
Please keep in mind that if you receive a message from someone who is not added in your CRM as a contact, the message won't appear on Sidekick.
