Or do you want to set an automatic reply when they message during your non-business hours? In any case, you can set an away message on the app. Follow our guide below, and we’ll teach you how to set one on your business tools.
In WhatsApp Business, you can add automatic replies to your account so that you can respond to people when they message you on the app. In this way, you can still engage with your customers when you can’t reply to them on your own right away.
For starters, you can set your greeting message for any new customer that message you on the app. After doing so, you can also add an away message on your account to send replies when you’re away from the app or during non-business hours.
Here’s our guide to setting your away message on WhatsApp Business.
How to add an away message on WhatsApp Business
If you want to reply to your customers while you’re not using WhatsApp Business, you can set an away message on the app. In this way, you can tell people that you’re not available at the moment.
You can set your away message from the WhatsApp Business app on your phone. Check our quick tutorial below and we’ll show you how to do so.
On your phone:

- Tap More options (three dots icon) and select “Business tools” from the menu.
- Select “Away message” under the Messaging section.
- Enable the away message feature and edit the message that you want to send to your customers.
- Select the schedule and choose the recipients of your message.
