A message strategy defines how you interact with your customer. What types of message groups and messages are delivered to the customer based on the strategy or criteria in which the decision is made.
Message strategies can have one or more delivery channels assigned to them. All messages that are returned in a message strategy decision are delivered to the select delivery channels for that message strategy.
Messages can also have delivery channels selected on the message. If a returned message from a message strategy has a delivery channel selected, and the message strategy also has delivery channels selected, the messages will be delivered to all of the selected delivery channels across the messages and message strategies
The message and message attributes, along with the extended channel are recorded in the contact history.
