  3. Click on the Add welcome message link. A field appears with a formatting toolbar at the top.
  4. Type your welcome message in the field.
  5. (optional) Format your welcome message using options in the formatting toolbar.
  6. Click the Save button. Your welcome message appears at the bottom of the list of responses.
