Understanding Inbox Settings in Aloware

Inbox Settings in Aloware help admins manage the Inbox efficiently within Aloware Talk. These filters streamline the process by categorizing and organizing communication based on various criteria.


  1. Contact Task Status

    Allows for the transitioning of contacts between different statuses.

    1. If enabled, the contact task status will continue to function with the Open, Pending, and Closed statuses tracked and displayed within the Talk Inbox and contact pages.

    2. If disabled, statuses are removed from the Talk Inbox, displaying contacts based on set filters and order, and also removing status controls and audit information from the contact details view.

  2. Company Wide Inbox Filters

    Admins define Company-wide Filters in Aloware Admin for all Agents (in Aloware Talk). Agents can use the predefined filters from the Inbox filter in Aloware Talk.

    How to Create Company Filters

    Admin defines the filters that are considered as Company filters.

    1. In your Aloware Admin account, navigate to the Accounts menu.
