The Knowledge Assistant can notify you of new reviews, Google Q&As, and upcoming holidays via SMS text message or Facebook Messenger and allow you to respond to a review, answer a question, or update your holiday hours right from your smartphone, without needing to log in. In order to set this up, you must assign a Primary Knowledge Assistant Contact to your account and specify each type of notification you’d like to receive.
Assigning a Primary Knowledge Assistant Contact enables proactive messages to be sent to that user for selected fields. Users will not receive notifications until they set up Knowledge Assistant by connecting their phone number or Facebook account. To learn more, see Set Up Knowledge Assistant.
Note: Only one contact can be set per account.
