Conversations Inbox | Tutorials | Labels

Labels are an easy way to classify and prioritize a conversation with a customer. Every business can create their own labels to manage and mark conversations.    

Labels are typically used by businesses to identify the type of conversation or prioritize it. Both can be achieved with labels. For example, you could create a label named ‘Urgent’ for conversations that should be prioritized by your agents. Another example could be to define the department with a label, e.g. ‘Sales’.

4. Choose a name for your label and select the color.

Tip: You can also choose the Priority for your label. If the priority is set to Normal, it won’t affect the order of a conversation in your inbox. If you set the priority to High, it will automatically push a conversation with your new label to the top of your inbox.

5. Save your new label.

Your label is now available in your Conversations Inbox 🎉
