Engage Digital | Searching for messages in Inbox

Last updated on February 08, 2022
The search function allows agents to search for message threads according to search criteria such as content, categories, or dates. 
 
The search bar is located at the top of the left panel. To look up a message, type in a keyword inside the search bar and press Enter. The search result that matches the criteria will populate under the search folder. 
 
The search bar has a filter option that allows you to filter messages from certain agents or identities. This option is useful when you want to identify particular messages when there have been multiple agents responding to a customer.

Now let’s discuss how to use the search assistant. At the right side of the search bar, you will see a triangular icon that enables you to perform an advanced search. When you click this, the Search assistant window will pop-up. This allows you to filter the search result of the messages based on a set of conditions that you can enter in the search criteria fields.
 
You’ll find the following search filters when using the search assistant:
  • Text: Search for specific keywords.
  • Status in: Search by the status of the message. Options include Agent message, Agent reply, Assigned, Ignored, New, and Replied.
  • Channel: Search by the digital channel from which the messages came.
  • Approval required: Choose whether you want to search for messages that required supervisor approval (Yes) or not (No) before the message was sent.
