Sending direct messages in Appulate

A few months back, we've launched Notes, which let you leave notes on markets and submissions and can be used as a live chat for your company. We’re happy to announce that now you can send private messages to other companies in Appulate.

Appulate messages are the easiest way to connect instantly with markets.

How to send messages

For now, we've turned on messages only between agencies and markets added on the RFQ interface (and if a market has an Appulate submission and actively uses Appulate). Messages are not available for submarkets. To check if you can send a message to this company, simply look at the icon near a market name:

– You can send messages and leave notes

– You can only leave notes

Please also note that you can send a message to a market only after you request a quote from them. If you're a market user and want to message an agency, make sure you've assigned an agent to the RFQ.

Note: You can send messages from:

  • the Markets Selector section on the RFQ interface;
  • the All Active page in the Quotes menu.

1. To write a message, click the Messages & notes icon near a market name.

Appulate will also notify you of any new messages by email, to help you keep track of your conversations.
