What is Quick Text?

Quick text saves users time and increases standardization. With quick text, you can insert predefined messages, like greetings, answers to common questions, and short notes. Social25 Quick Text uses the standard Salesforce object for QuickText, added with own logic so it can be used within the Social25 chat window (Lightning Component).

All fields and related fields (such as First Name) on the Case Object are currently supported for now.

Can I use the same folder structure as Quick Text in Salesforce?

We’ve implemented a folder structure, through which you can navigate to find specific Quick Text. You can do this manually or with key shortcut 'CMD .' (so type Command and a .) within the text are of the chat component. You can now navigate through the Quick Text with arrows and open a folder with the 'Right arrow' key. Insert a text with 'Enter' or by clicking it.

How do I use the merge field functionality?

Merge fields can be used for related fields on the case object. In the Quick Text settings you are able to define merge fields which will fill with the value in the corresponding case field. This holds for all standard fields on the case object. If you would like to make a merge field with the first name of the customer to thank them for their message (for instance) you can make a formula field which relates to the case with the following formula (Contact.FirstName) and then use this field as a merge field to address your customers with their first name.
