The message view will expand to half the size of the conversation page, and options will appear depending on the channel selected.

To discard the message, click on the X icon.
Finally, click on the Send Icon to send the message
Your sent message will appear in the conversation thread. Use the checkmark icons below the message to view its status:

Changing the Channel
Do you need to switch communication channels with the same client? No problem! Command Center will always keep conversations with the same client in the same thread, so communication never gets lost.
You will always be able to tell which channel was used to send a message by the channel icon in the top right corner of the message. You can always switch the channel by using the channel icon next to the message window. Keep in mind some channels have limitations for how long the conversation will remain open between messages.
You can also use the Quick Actions Menu to take actions with this client in Business Center or ThryvPay, as appropriate without leaving the conversation. Note that Business Center or ThryvPay must already be purchased in order to use quick actions.
Click on the + icon to see the available quick actions. Click on the desired action, and a pop up window or new tab will appear, where you can complete the desired action.

How will my customer see the message?
Communicating through Command Center will not affect how your customer sees the message. They will still see your message on the platform the communication takes place in. For example, if you send them an email, they will still be able to read the email as normal in their email inbox.
What about incoming messages? What channel will those use?
The conversation will default to the incoming channel. You are able to change to a different channel provided that contact has their contact information saved. Click Here for a guide to changing the channel of the conversation in Command Center.
Will my spam filter still work in Command Center?
Yes! Any spam filters you have applied in your native email platform will apply to incoming messages in your Command Center inbox.
