In this section, we are going to guide you through the basic functions of our inbox screen. The main inbox screen is split into various modules, namely the conversation module on the left, chat module in the center, and information modules on the right.
The inbox screen will be the most commonly used screen for your agents and operators. It serves as an omni-channel messaging suite that allows you to send and receive messages across all messaging channels including Live Chat, WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, WeChat, Line, SMS and many more.
You can start by typing messages in the input box at the bottom and send both photos and files by dragging and dropping.
By default you'll be able to see all your assigned conversations. You can also view "All Conversations" and as well as "Unassigned" conversations by clicking on the drop down arrow next to "Your Conversations".
The assignee of the conversation is listed on the top right-hand corner of the chat module. Simply click on the drop down menu to search for and choose the teammate you'd like to re-assign the conversation to.
You can toggle between "Reply" and "Note" in the input box at the bottom of the chat module.
Messages sent using the "Note" function will be in orange text bubbles and will not be seen by your customers. You can use the "Note" function to write a note-to-self or tag teammates to mention them in the conversations.
People who are mentioned in the conversations will be able to see and reply to the conversations within 24 hours. You can also see your mentioned conversations by accessing to the "Mention" dropdown from above.
You can search through conversations across all channels by typing keywords into the search bar above all your existing conversations in the conversation module.
Filter your conversations according to channel type or conversation status by using the drop down menus on top of the search bar in the conversation module.
You'll be able to see which channels you are using to contact your customers right next to their names at the top of the conversation module. Click on the badge to toggle between different status.
You can also see whether the conversations are "Open", "Snoozed" or "Closed" from the status indicators and filter them accordingly. The 3 icons below, from left to right, represent "Open", "Snooze" and "Close"
You can also filter conversations status with the dropdown on the left.
In addition, we have set some rules below to better help you segment conversations by status:
After you integrate with any messaging channels, the conversations that were last contacted within 2 weeks will be "open", while the other conversations will be "closed". This is to make sure that you can focus on the most important leads.
When you broadcast messages to contacts that you haven't talked before on SleekFlow, their conversation status will be defaulted to closed.
When a customer replies to a closed conversation, the status will automatically be changed to "open".
You can edit contacts directly in the inbox page, by clicking the edit button on the top right-hand corner of the contact information module.
You can also add tags to a contact to better classify and segment them. Just search through the list of tags and add the relevant hashtags using the hashtag module at the bottom right-hand corner. You can use hashtags to filter contacts, classify customers or run broadcast based on hashtags.
You can add a phone number to your existing channel (e.g. Facebook, Line, Live Chat), and you'll be able to send WhatsApp messages to that contact at the same time. However, you'll not be able to combine to separate contacts.
