Run a scenario

There are two ways to run a scenario: From within the Whispir platform and from Whispir's OneClick app on a mobile device.

Note: If the scenario uses a template, it's not updated automatically if the template is updated. To apply the updated template, edit the scenario to re-select the template and then save your changes.

  1. Ensure that the required workspace is on the Workspace toolbar.
  2. Hover over the workspace to view the Workspace menu.
  3. Under Workflows click Run Scenario. (If you can’t see it, click More to view more commands.)
    The Run Scenario dialog opens, listing all predefined scenarios.
  4. Do one of the following:
    • To run one scenario click Send Now beside it.
    • To run multiple scenarios at the same time select the check box beside the relevant scenarios and click Send Now.
    • Warning! Take care when clicking Send Now. This action sends the message immediately, so make sure the scenario content has been finalised.

    • To edit one scenario before sending it click Edit & Send. This opens the scenario on the New Message page, allowing you to edit the content and settings and then click Send.
    • To schedule one scenario to run at a later date and time click Schedule beside it. This opens the Schedule Scenario page. See About scheduling messages for help with scheduling.
