This page describes the different statuses that you will see in the 360 Client Hub during the activation of your WhatsApp Business Account.
Each folder in the 360 Client Hub is connected to one WhatsApp phone number.
By clicking the button "Show details" - you can view all of the statuses of the WhatsApp Business Account and the phone number.
The folder is divided into four sections that can be seen in the image below:
The Project Status shows the status of your WhatsApp Business Account and Phone Number together. There are three possible states:
This is the starting status for all numbers.
We are either 1) waiting on an outcome from Meta or 2) they are requiring some action to be taken by you.
The setup is complete.
If your number is stuck in Draft status, please contact support and we will advise the next steps. The common reasons why a number might be stuck in Draft mode are:
- The phone number is still connected to a standard WhatsApp App or WhatsApp Business App. To continue with the registration process - you must fully delete any existing WhatsApp Account.
- Number already exists on Meta Business Manager - a number can only be added to a WA Business Account once
- Classic Signup / Embedded Signup Flow failed
The Account section shows:
- The Client Name (Business Name)
- API Connection Name
The Status of the WhatsApp Business Account is shown in the center column.
The WhatsApp Business Account side shows statuses connected to your WhatsApp Business Account. This data is related to your company as an entity and must be only completed once, no matter how many different phone numbers you decide to connect to your WhatsApp Business Account.
The WhatsApp Business Account has three statuses: External WABA Account, Message On Behalf, and Business Verification. Once these three statuses have been verified/accepted, the icon will turn from gray
. If not all three statuses have been verified/accepted, the yellow icon
will appear. If one of the statuses is failed/denied/rejected the red icon
In case any of the statuses get rejected, please check out our Documentation. If the problem persists, you can contact us at Help and Support.
When your company's account has been submitted to Meta, the External WhatsApp Business Account (WABA Account) status will change from
When the External WABA Account and External WABA Channel are submitted, you will receive a notification in your Business Manager asking you to allow 360dialog to send messages on your behalf. The possible status states are:
The Message On Behalf (MOB) request has not yet been sent.
The MOB request has been sent. Go to your META Business Manager and accept the MOB request from 360dialog. Click here for more info on how to approve the Messaging On Behalf request.
You have successfully accepted the Message on Behalf request.
If you deny the Message on Behalf request on your Facebook Business Manager, we will not be able to proceed with the activation of your WhatsApp Business Account. If you have accidentally denied the Message On Behalf and wish to revert that decision, please contact us at Help and Support.
Find information on Business Verification in the Official Meta documentation. The possible statuses are:

The Phone Number side shows statuses connected to the specific phone number to be connected to WhatsApp. This data is related to the activation status of the specific phone number and must be completed for every new phone number that you would like to add to your account.
Once your company's phone number (channel) has been submitted to Meta, the External WhatsApp Business Account Channel (WABA Channel) status will change from
DRAFT(in grey) to
