In this context Messenger campaigns can be created.

This way, the user can initialise and respond messages using the portal.

Create Campaign

  • Keep in mind that to activate Facebook Messenger you can NOT have Pop-ups blocked.

  • Whoever sets up the campaign must be an administrator of the page you want to associate.



In order to correctly configure the following steps, first of all you must have an existing Facebook account.

If you do not have a Facebook page, go to Create Facebook Page section.

Basic Configuration

Remember that both to activate campaigns and for interactions to reach uContact from messenger, you must have a public IP in the External IP of the Configuration - Telephony section.

These metrics to campaign statistics in real time, they are measured in time (seconds).

Maximum Interactions per Agent
Limits the amount of active interactions the agent can get. The rest of the interactions wait in queue.

After Hours
Define a message to show when the client try to start an interaction when the campaign it’s after hours

The system can have a non working Messenger campaign, without the need of deleting it entirely and lose information. If checked, the campaign can be used.

Pre designed responses can be added in this section, this ones will appear in a list when the Agent has an interaction with a client. With the + and - buttons, responses can be added or deleted from the table.

Once the parameters have been entered, clicking on Save displays a window to activate the campaign.

Here we will continue, as long as the account indicated is Administrator of the page you want to associate.

As we continue, we will see a new message asking which of our pages we want to associate, and all those that the facebook user has available will be listed.

After pressing ‘Next’, we are given the permissions that are being requested to handle messenger.

Importantly, all permissions must be accepted for the integration to work properly.

After clicking on 'Done', Facebook will notify us in the following message that the connection was made.

Finally, after pressing 'OK', we will be shown a successful connection message that we can close.

At this time our Messenger campaign will be ready to receive interactions, just add the agents and start interacting!

To see the status of the campaign it is recommended to click on the refresh icon in the upper right corner of the campaign table


If the 'ACTIVE TOKEN' icon appears in red, it means that the campaign is inactive.

This may occur every certain time stipulated by Facebook based on its security policies.

To activate it again, we select the campaign and press the ‘Activate with Facebook’ button in the lower left corner of the configuration screen, after that we will follow the activation steps again.



In order to add or delete agents from a campaign, the user must follow the same steps of Add Members.


Members added to a campaign must be part of a voice campaign, on the contrary, this agents wont get any interactions from this channel.



This is how the agent uses Messenger in the portal.


The agent will have on his Inbox the Messenger with which she/he started an interaction.

This message will unfold on the right side of this section, showing its history of conversation.

This one has as title the campaigns name from which it came and the name of the user that started the interaction. Above it, the beginning of the interaction will appear and the user should open it to be able to see the rest of it.

On top of the interaction will be detailed:

  • Campaign from where the message is coming from.

  • Facebook's username of the person that sent it.


Below you can see the box to write and the following buttons:

  • Canned Responses
    In Campaign Settings the user can add pre-design questions, this ones will appear in this list.

  • Attachments 
    The Agent can attach different types of files to the message.

  • Emojis
