In this article, we will cover how to turn off read receipts in WhatsApp. We’ll also cover how to refresh your Cisco Unity Inbox to see if new messages have arrived. You can use the same techniques as before when you send a polite email, but the main point is to let the recipient know why you’re writing. For example, you can include a link to a relevant article or simply say “Let’s catch up soon!”
Check marks on WhatsApp
If you have ever sent or received a message via WhatsApp, you’ve probably noticed that the message has a check mark next to it. These mark up the status of each message. Depending on the settings of both the sender and receiver, these marks can either be grey or blue. Checking messages on WhatsApp can be quite helpful if you don’t want to miss a message, but it can also be a source of anxiety. Here’s how to check whether your message has been delivered successfully:
WhatsApp’s checkmarks let you know when a message has been read or delivered. Because it’s a worldwide application, it’s important to be sure that your message was received and read by the recipient. If it hasn’t, the functionality of the messaging app loses a little bit of its utility. The network may be down, and your recipient’s device may not have received the message. Luckily, there are some simple ways to check whether your message was delivered.
How to turn off read receipts
How to turn off read receipts when checking your messages? Turning off this feature will ensure that your Contacts do not know that you have read their message. This works both ways. Basically, if you want to block yourself from receiving read receipts from your contacts, you have to enable the toggle in the settings menu. Read receipts are useful for people who read many messages each day, but you might not want them to know that you haven’t read everything.
You can turn off read receipts in iMessage or on your Mac OS X device, but you must enable them for each individual contact. If you don’t want your contacts to be able to see your message, go to your preferences and click the toggle next to Send Read Receipts. To enable read receipts, first open your conversations with the contact that you want to turn off read receipts for. Next, toggle the toggle next to the Send Read Receipts option to “on.”
Getting a read receipt from the recipient
Getting a read receipt from the recipient can be very useful when sending an email. Not only will it tell the sender that the message has been delivered, it will also indicate that the recipient has opened the message. Depending on the email service provider, some email providers may allow you to mark a message as read without even opening it. You can opt to have the read receipt sent automatically, or switch on the setting in your email client.
If the recipient does not wish to receive a read receipt, you can ask them to disable it for the email in question. However, the read receipt will not be sent if the recipient hasn’t explicitly requested it. This can be a nuisance for the recipient. In most cases, the recipient can opt out of the read receipt request by selecting the “send receipt” option in the email program’s Options sub-menu. You can also specify a specific location where you want the read receipt to be sent.
Refreshing your Cisco Unity Inbox to check for new messages
Refreshing your Cisco Unity Inbox to view new messages will open your Cisco Phone’s message list in a new window. If you’ve received a fax, this will open a separate window, where you can view the message. If you’ve received a message from a Cisco Unity fax machine, you can click the fax icon to open the message. Cisco Unity’s message list is a convenient place to view messages and manage them.
To refresh the Inbox in Cisco Unity, go to the “Settings” section of your phone. In this section, you’ll find options for selecting the language, the order of messages and the number of unread messages. To customize your Cisco Unity, follow the steps outlined in the following chapter. You’ll also find more information about message playback settings and phone menu preferences.
