    Check out our complete WhatsApp Template Message Guide to know how to fill Template Label, Type, Category & Language.

    In Template Format, you need to add the format of your WhatsApp Template Message as shown in the image on the right. There are 2 rules for using parameters while drafting Template Format.

    • Make sure to use variable parameters and that they have the correct number of curly brackets (i.e., there need to be 2 brackets on the left and 2 on the right of the variable)

    • Make sure the parameters (e.g., {{1}}) contains some text
      For example:
      Correct Format:
      Hello {{1}}

      Wrong Format:
      Hello
      {{1}}
      {{2}}



  3. Parameters in Sample Message

    In Sample Message, you need to copy-paste the same WhatsApp Template message as in Template Format.

    The only difference is that instead of curly brackets, you need to use "[]" square brackets. Also, instead of the number (1), you must add a sample value i.e. name.

    Similarly, if there's another bracket, you must add a solid figure, instead of a variable in Sample Message.

    Don't worry, the parameters won't appear when your Broadcast goes live.
