Monitor your Facebook Page private messages, Twitter direct messages, LinkedIn Page comments and Showcase Page comments in one place: Inbox . Inbox gives you the full context of your messages in threaded conversations, so you can reply to customers efficiently. Inbox activity on mobile and the web dashboard will sync with each other.
Inbox is available to Professional, Team, Business, and Enterprise plans. Team, Business, and Enterprise plans can also use Inbox assignments to triage message replies. Users with the social network permissions to reply to your social networks can reply to messages in Inbox.
If your Facebook Page or LinkedIn Page messages are not appearing in Inbox, have a Page admin reconnect the Page on the web dashboard.
Working in Inbox
If you belong to more than one organization, tap the icon in the top-left to select one, to ensure you're seeing the right social networks. To view messages for one or more specific profiles, tap Filter in the top-right to select the social network(s), or to filter by public or private message types, and then click Done.
The Unassigned queue (or Incoming for Professional plans) is the default view. All new messages will appear here in chronological order with the newest at the top. Tap the arrow at the top of the queue to reverse the sort order. Each message displays the social profile that received it, as well as the time it was received.
Swipe right on a message to dismiss it, or tap to open and take action on it.
- Tap the Replying as field at the bottom of the thread to enter a reply and then tap Send .
- When a message has been replied to or doesn’t need to be actioned, tap Dismiss in the top-right corner of the thread. This moves the thread into the Done queue, reducing clutter so you can focus on the next message in the queue.
- You can also tap more in the top-right corner of a thread to Assign it to yourself, a team, or another team member (Team, Business, and Enterprise plans).
Tap Unassigned to switch to another queue.
Assigned messages move from Unassigned into either the Assigned (assigned to any teams you are a member of) or Assigned to Me (assigned specifically to you) queues. Swipe right on an assigned message in the list to resolve it right away, or tap to open it and respond. Then tap Resolve on an assigned thread to move it out of Assigned and into Done.
In the Done queue, tap more and then Reopen on a dismissed message to return it to Unassigned/Incoming. If a customer replies to a dismissed conversation, that thread will re-open and move from Done back into Unassigned/Incoming.
