Inviting Visitors Through WhatsApp

The Facility Manager may configure FacilityBot to allow Requestors to invite visitors to the building through WhatsApp. 

Note that the Facility Manager is able to switch off the Visitor management feature. In this case, Requestors for that building will not be able to access this feature. The Facility Manager may also change the trigger keywords and text for this feature.

This article outlines how the Requestor can invite a visitor through WhatsApp.
