How Does Blocking Work?

  • Blocking will stop all incoming messages from that number for the entire team.
  • The number will be blocked for all users in the team.
  • An automatic opt-out is triggered so that the blocked recipient does not receive any messages from any users in the team. 
  • Users can choose to block a number but as a reminder, it will be for the entire team.


1. Open the conversation view of the record

2. On the right hand side, toggle on  Block

3. You will be prompted with a message to confirm that you want to block this number. Click [ Block] to confirm.

4. Once the number is blocked, the number will also be automatically opted-out for the entire team.
