Using The Main Dashboard: Inbox Filters

Inbox Filters make it much easier for you to stay organized and locate the conversations you need to find.

Important Filters

The "Important" filters are the top three filters in your side-view, and include Me, Awaiting, All Unresolved, and any saved filters / custom views.

The “Me” filter is designed to make conversations related to your activities easier to find and much more relevant in the context of interacting with customers. With this filter, Re:amaze has made conversations pertaining to yourself much more accessible. Within the “Me” filter, there are a few sub-filters (similar to the main filters) that you can use to view the conversations of your choice.

The "Awaiting" filter shows you conversations that are currently show open and unresolved conversations that are either assigned to you or unassigned.

The "All Unresolved" filter shows you conversations that are unresolved across all channels regardless of who it is assigned to (or unassigned). The "All Unresolved" filter can also show you conversations broken down by chats and emails.

You can also star any commonly used filter, sub-filter, or custom view and add it to the "IMPORTANT" section.


State Filters

Filters show you what you want to see, plain and simple. And instead of using custom views like Zendesk or Freshdesk, Re:amaze approaches conversation management in a more fluid and more consistent manner for all staff members. Every staff member has access to the exact same core filters. The pros to this approach is that it's immensely useful to coordinate with team members on how to find something or see something. This also means less confusion. The con is that it is a little less flexible than custom views.

The main filters are: All Conversations, Awaiting, Subscribed, Participating, All Unresolved, All Archived, On Hold, Auto-Resolved, Outbound. To read about the various conversation states that affect these filters, see this article.

  • All Conversations shows you every single conversation (both unresolved/open and resolved/closed) in chronological order and should be the first place you start your day. Our recommendation is to use the "All Conversations" filter to get a glimpse into your overall workload because it'll be in context of what has arrived before.
  • Awaiting is a smart filter that, by default, shows you unresolved conversations that are either unassigned or assigned to you. This smart filter also utilizes machine learning and surfaces conversations (regardless of channel) that most urgently require your attention. This algorithm is based on a combination of timestamps, thread size, message volume, and message frequency. We highly recommend learning to rely and trust this filter when it comes to helping customers. Being that the awaiting filter does not treat any particular channel with more priority than others, it allows you to help customers equally and without prior biases.
  • Subscribed is a filter that shows you only conversations from channels that you've subscribed to in reverse chronological order. Reverse chronological order means that the customer who has been waiting the longest will appear on top.
  • Participating is a filter that only shows you conversations that you're a participant of. This means if you have at least one reply in the conversation, or if a note is addressed to you, or if you're assigned to the conversation, or if you've clicked on the "Follow" action. Only unresolved conversations will show up here.
  • On-Hold is a filter to shows you conversations that are temporarily resolved but only because there's an active reminder set. Conversations that are On-Hold will be moved out of On-Hold and into an open/unresolved filter when the reminder date and time is reached.
  • All Unresolved is a simple filter that shows you, well, unresolved conversations only in reverse chronological order. It's a quick access to see what is still pending and what requires attention. We recommend using this filter as a day-starter if you don't like seeing a cluttered inbox provided by the "All Conversations" filter.

Channel Filters

Your Re:amaze channels appear right on the dashboard under the respective brands they belong to. If you only have one brand, then only one brand will show. Clicking on a channel filter will show you conversations that belong only to that channel. This is the recommended method of filtering out specific types of conversations such as emails, Facebook messages, Instagram comments, Tweets, or SMS messages. Keep in mind that live chat (real time messages) conversations that originate from your embedded website widget is always tied to an email address on the back-end. Clicking on the right email channel filter will help you locate these conversations.

Another thing to note is that each channel filter has the same subset of state filters just like the main dashboard.


Assignee Filters

Are you a customer service team member that only works on conversations that are assigned to you? If so, your personal assignee filter is where you want to start your day. It shows all conversations (both resolved/closed and unresolved/open) that are assigned to you in reverse chronological order.


Tags Filter

Tags can be thought of as labels or folders. Clicking on a tag filter will show you conversations that belong to that tag and that tag only. See how tags work in this article. Tag filters also have a subset of state filters to help you more easily navigate to certain types of conversations.
