You can find or create WhatsApp templates from the Infobip dashboard. To do so:

- From the list of templates, search for your template. Expand the template that you want to save in the CleverTap Dashboard.

Exporting a Template
The Infobip dashboard does not display all the details for the selected template. We recommend exporting the template and keeping the details handy. You can copy and paste the values from the exported template to the CleverTap dashboard to ensure you are not missing any field. For more information, refer to Adding a WhatsApp Template in CleverTap.
Naming WhatsApp Templates
Template names and language variants must be unique for each provider configuration. This means that you can use the same template name once for each provider configuration.
For example, if you have multiple provider configurations, such as Phone_1, phone_2, you can use the same template name once within Phone_1 and Phone_2.
To create WhatsApp campaigns, you must have pre-approved WhatsApp message templates saved in the CleverTap dashboard. To add the message templates:
- Navigate to Settings > Channels > WhatsApp > Provider Nickname from the CleverTap dashboard.
- Select the Templates option, and click +Template.
- Enter the template name in the Namespace field.
- Choose the type of template header (Text or Media). For Media headers, you can use Image, Video, Document, and Location.
- Enter the message content.
- Select Footer to add a footer text and a button (Quick Reply or a Call To Action).
- Select the Language in which you want to display the message.
- Click Save Template.
You can send a test message using the saved templates from the CleverTap dashboard as follows:
- Hover over the desired template for which you want to send a test notification.
- Click Send Test.
- Select the test profiles or manually enter the mobile number to whom you want to send the test message and click Send Test.
The success or failure response is displayed on the dashboard. If the message is not delivered, you can copy the response payload and share it with the Infobip team to debug the issue, as shown in the following figure:
