How to “Listen” a WhatsApp Reply in the middle of the Scenario?

I have a WhatsApp Trigger at the beginning of my scenario, listening to incoming messages from a user
Then, my Step #2 is sending a new message to the user, asking him to click one of the reply buttons…
How do I wait for a reply message? How do I listen and wait for the user’s response?
So I can respond based on the user’s reply?

Thanks for any help,

Hi @Ronen_Yahaloms,

Welcome to the Make community!

I advise you to create a separate scenario that listens for replies. Scenario’s have a maximum running time of 40 minutes and cannot ‘wait’ for external responses mid-scenario.

Please, follow these steps when asking a question, and you’ll be more likely to get a helpful answer:

:writing_hand: Give us a detailed explanation of what you’re trying to achieve

:footprints: Tell us about any steps you’ve tried so far

:camera_flash: Include screenshots of:

  • your scenario flow and setup (functions, mappings, variables, etc.)

  • module configurations and outputs

  • any error messages you are getting

:card_file_box: Share the blueprint of the scenario you are asking a question about. (this does not contain any connection or personal information)
