Can I use trigger feature to send a message to a user's cellphone who last sent a message few days ago on WhatsApp?

Hey @incalculable-bird-83091, WhatsApp requires that all messages sent after a 24 hour window be a Template message - have a certain format with predefined variables. You can learn more at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/whatsapp/message-templates/guidelines/
I will confirm if you could use a Trigger to do that

Hey @incalculable-bird-83091, this is coming real soon!
In the meantime, please build your bot and the workflow logic so you are ready when the template option is released!

Hi @early-train-33247 so does the released trigger feature also support WhatsApp template messages?

Hello mate, not yet. But I can see it in our Todo list already!
Moved from backlog to Todo. Couple weeks to release I believe!
Hey @incalculable-bird-83091, It's possible now
But you will need a node.js server where you will install our client https://www.npmjs.com/package/@botpress/client
