Once you've set up your WhatsApp destination and have a model to pull data from, you can set up your sync configuration to begin syncing data. Go to the Syncs overview page and click the Add sync button to begin. Then, select the relevant model and the WhatsApp destination you want to sync to.
WhatsApp message templates are specific message formats that businesses use to send out notifications or customer care messages to people that have opted in to notifications. Business-initiated messages-the types of messages Hightouch enables your team to send-must use a template approved by WhatsApp. If you don't see the template you would like to use in the sync configuration form, check the template's status in your WhatsApp Template Manager.
A column from your model must contain the user phone numbers to send a message to.
If the selected template contains variables, each variable must be mapped to create a complete message.
