Courier chat

  1. Logistics coordinator
  2. Message templates

To quickly respond to changes in a route and adjust delivery information, use the chat available in the Yandex Courier app and the routing workspace. Chats take place in a different app: Yandex Messenger. For detailed instructions on how to work with chats, see Help.

In chats, you can exchange text messages and send photos. This is a secure and reliable way for the logistician and courier to exchange internal information. A courier can verify something was delivered or report a problem by Adding photos.

  • Route: number.
  • Route URL: <link>.

Message templates

Couriers often face the same problems. To save couriers time, you can compose messages in advance for any number of situations. The list of messages will be displayed in Yandex Courier and couriers can send them in just one tap.

Note. This can only be enabled via the API by sending a request to the support service.

Information can be worded to account for your orders, routes, and couriers. Just remember that the descriptions must be concise and fit on the screen of the Yandex Courier app. Keep them as short as possible. For example:

  • Wrong address
  • No answer
  • Road accident

To send a message template to the logistics coordinator, the courier chooses the problem from the list in the app. The message is then inserted into Yandex Messenger.
