Deliver a personal touch at scale

With Workflows, you can set up powerful automations that enable you to deliver great customer service in less time. All it takes is some simple if/then logic to get started.

Here’s just a few examples of what you can do with Workflows:

Automate actions

“If the subject contains Software Invoice, assign the conversation to Samantha and add the tag billing.”

IfSubject contains Software Invoice

Then Assign to Samantha and Add tag(s) billing

Send Bulk Replies

“If a conversation has the Outage tag, send an email to the customer and change the status to Closed.”

IfTag(s) is equal to Outage

Then Send an Email to the customer and Change Status Closed

Create Custom Folders

“If a conversation has not received a response within 24 hours, copy it to the Overdue folder.”

IfStatus is equal to Active and Customer Reply is not in the last 1 Day

Then Copy to Folder Overdue
