What does 'waiting for an answer' mean?

You will see this message if you have pending requests in your meetings.

When you send a meeting request to an attendee in Brella, there are three different meeting statuses:

meeting-statuses_1
  • Accept your request
  • Reschedule your request for a better time
  • Decline your request

After you have sent the first meeting request, you will have the chance to write one more message before the chat closes and opens again until the receiver has made a decision on your request.

It may take some time for them to get to your request, so please be patient. You will be notified of any decisions by email and push notifications, so don't worry.

👉 If the event day is happening soon and you still not have a reply, you can cancel the meeting request to free up the time slot. The chat will remain closed.

👉 Note as well that if the receiver declines your request, it may not mean that they don't want to meet you. There is an option to leave the chat open so you two can still talk.

💡 Tip! Ensure to enable notifications a few days before and during the event. So you don't miss any updates on your meetings. 

❗ Please remember to go through all meeting requests you receive and make a decision on them. Many pending meeting requests may negatively affect your matchmaking score in Brella.
