Make Notes in the Shared Team Inbox

Switch to Notes mode in the chat box section effortlessly to create and manage user notes for future reference. You can add notes in your conversation to easily coordinate with your teammates. For example, you can add notes to help your teammates understand the context better when you reassign a chat to them.

In the example below, we’ve added a note about a customer interested in placing a bulk order and requesting special rates. Next, we’ll assign this chat to a teammate who can address the customer’s query effectively.

Chat Events in the Shared team Inbox

The text in grey that appears in your chat window with the user is called Chat Events. Chat events are status updates which will be visible only to you and your teammates.

For example: These could be updates like when you assign a conversation to a teammate – you then get to see when this chat was assigned to your teammate, like this.
