How to: View the Communications Tab
Navigate to the Owner Profile.
Click on the Communications tab.
You will see a chronological list of all emails and SMS your business has had with the customer.
Categories included are: SMS, Call Log - Inbound, Call Log - Outbound, Email, Marketing Campaign, Checkout Survey, and Lead Forms.
There are up to 100 entries on the initial load.
How to: Filter the Communications Tab
From the Communications tab, click on the Filter Icon for a column header.
Input your desired filter parameter (i.e. SMS Category, Sent at 01/01/2022) and select Contains, Not contains, Equals, Not equal, Starts with, or Ends with. Each column can have two filters at once - in order to access the second filter input, the first filter input must be completed. You can also filter by multiple columns at once.
i.e. if you enter equals 08/03/2022 as well as input OR equals 07/25/2022, you will get results from both dates.
If you filter by Category in addition, you will see only the selected category on those dates.
- If you wish to remove all filters, click the blue button above the list that says Remove All Filters.
How to: Sort the Communications Tab
By default, the Communications list will sort chronologically by the Sent At column. However, you can sort by any column.
- From the Communications tab, click on the column you wish to sort by.
Click once on a column header to sort the entire table alphabetically by the column you clicked.
Click a second time on the same column header to sort the entire table reverse alphabetically by the column you clicked.
Click a third time on the same column header to undo the sort on the Communications list.
If you click on a different column header it will remove the previous sort and apply an alphabetical sort for the entire table by the newly clicked header column.
