Using Conversations

In Conversations you can find all conversations you had with your customers via all the channels you have connected to your account. The Conversations Inbox allows you to initiate a conversation with your customers or reply to customer-initiated messages.

We divide the Conversations into 5 categories:


All new conversations land in your ‘Inbox’, which is visible to all your support agents. An agent just needs to pick a conversation and reply to it.


Conversations that are specifically assigned to you will be shown in Yours, until you close the conversation.


Any agent can access all messages in Open to check which conversations are currently active. This enables collaboration among agents as they can quickly pick the conversations to handle from Open conversations.


All ongoing conversations between your chatbot(s) and customers will be shown here. An agent can always check to see if an intervention by the agent is required.


Here you will find all conversations that were closed either by one of your support agents or automatically closed by your chatbot.

TIP: After selecting a conversation, you can directly answer the customer, add templates, save contacts and much more.

Teams are an easy and flexible way to organize your agents. Each team can be assigned an email address, so your team doesn’t miss out on important notifications.

Businesses use Teams to reflect the organization of larger customer support teams. For example, a company with specialists for certain topics can create a team to handle incoming customer questions better, by assigning a conversation to a dedicated team. 

Or, businesses with customer support agents for different countries and languages can create a team to differentiate incoming customer questions by region or language.

In Team you can find detailed information about your team:

   1. Overview information.

   2. Agents assigned to the team.
