Active: Use this field to enable the rule as soon as it is created. By default, a rule is enabled as soon as it is created. Inactive rules are greyed out in the rules list.
Label: Use this field to name the rule. The label is displayed in the audit log when the rule is run. For example: ‘Rule [label] updated the priority of an interaction on content [message]’.
Only for Channels: Allows you to apply the created rule to one or more channels that you specify. If the rule applies to all channels, leave the field blank, otherwise select one or more channels from the Only for Channels dropdown list. This list includes all the channels that you have configured in the platform, organized by channel type.

Categorize thread: Automatically categorizes the thread corresponding to the conditions chosen in the Condition setting.
Change language: Allows you to change the language of the content according to the chosen condition.
Update priority: Allows you to set positive or negative boosts for for interactions in the Routing mode.
Category weighted dispatch: Allows you to distribute content in different categories using percentages. For example, you can choose to assign the Community Management category in 40% of cases and the Customer Care category in 60% of cases for private messages from a Facebook channel.
Condition: Specifies how the rule will be triggered. You may choose to always apply the rule (by removing any conditions), or you may apply the rule only when one or more conditions you specify are met.
If you’d like to create more than one rule, you can do this by using the Add icon. To delete a rule, click the Delete trash can icon to the right of the category settings.
