If you are initiating a conversation with a customer via WhatsApp channel, you can send a registered WhatsApp template. Make sure that you have already uploaded the consent of the customer in Consent Management. If you send a custom message or select a non-registered WhatsApp template, you can get an error in case the Customer Care Window of 24hours with that customer is closed.
