How do I change a message's status?

Messages can be divided into 4 statuses: 

  • Open: The customer was last to respond.
  • Closed: Customer has received a response or no follow-up action is required. 
  • Blocked: Conversation is spam or marketing - it does not warrant your team's attention.
  • Unsubscribed: Customer no longer wishes to be contacted.
