How Do I make a WhatsApp chatbot that talks first? Say I have a database of team members and I want the WhatsApp bot to send the first message (push notification) of Company news letter. How do I do that?

If you scroll down to "Starting a conversation proactively" there are some helpful instructions for exactly this!

Thank You, I'll have a look
Hi, I tried this, but it's not working out at all. The Bot works fine on it's own, but As soon As I add the "Start WhatsApp conversation" card, it doesn't work any longer. I did everything as required, from the message template to the phone number fields, it doesn't seem to work. Any chanse you've tried this and can walk me throught it?

hmm, what's not working exactly? Did you check the bot logs to look for errors? I haven't actually gone through the whatsapp setup, but I did go through the source code a bit to help me build my own integration.
