Push urgent conversations to the top of the queue so agents can address them first. This can help you align your queue to your organization's business strategy, focus on important contacts, and streamline staffing.
Set up prioritization rules
You can prioritize topics, contact groups, channels, and conversation types (public or private). In Inbox 2.0, Admin settings, expand Routing and automation, and then select Prioritization.
Use scores to increase priority
Each rule you create has a weight of 1. When you apply multiple rules to a single conversation, Inbox adds each rule to create a priority score. Inbox arranges the queue based on the that score, from highest to lowest. When two conversations have the same priority score, they’re sorted from oldest to newest.
The priority score can change while a conversation is in progress. For example, if a conversation enters the queue with no prioritized topic or contact group, it starts with a priority of 0. If an agent then manually assigns a prioritized topic to the conversation, its score becomes 1, increasing its priority. Similarly, if a conversation has a prioritized topic and an agent removes it, the priority score decreases.
Priority scores recalculate when a conversation moves from the Pending queue to the New queue.
