WA Activator

This is the WA Activator v5 that will be replacing WA Activator v2 - Slack-Zapier service.

To use this feature, you need to have the WhatsApp phone number available, meaning you need to have it included in your WhatsApp Business Account so you can have your WABA id associated to that phone number so you can properly assign and activate. This is because you will require a code that will only be sent to the WA number you are trying to activate. This feature will only be available for Admin and Manager users. Remember, if you don't have a phone number and SIM card yet assigned to a specific Business Account or Sandbox you will need to request it to Yalo IT using their service desk here.

1) Flow Setting Screen (Right Click or Three Dots selection on a new flow and select Settings…choose “activate a number here” link)
