  • Is it possible yet to create an SLA type rule that respects business hours?

    eg If I need to escalate a message if it hasn't been replied to within 4 business hours, so if the message arrives at 9pm Tuesday and we work 9-5 Monday to Friday the message would only trigger the rule 1pm on Wednesday.


    PS By business hours I'm referring to the same business hours that we've setup in the analytics

  • Ben George Rules can't look at business hours at this time, but you can use the Time is between condition in Rules to accomplish this.
