Message Throttling enables hotel speed limits on Ivy's group outbound messages (versus sending all at once) to soften the peaks in incoming text message volume during busy times (especially magic hour).

This defaults to "off," and is configured as a "# of seconds" delay between each message. Ivy waits 0.3 to 0.5 of a second between messages when not throttled. 1-3 second delays between messages produced good results at small & big box hotel beta tests.

Throttling applies to Group Messages as well, which are deemed less time sensitive and prioritizes manual individual outbound messages over group outbound messages. A manual outbound message can cut in line and get faster delivery to the guest even if many group messages (e.g. SKIPLINE) are waiting in queue!
