Managing your Inbox contacts

When using Inbox, you'll want to add and edit your contacts to keep your information up-to-date and provide great customer service!

To keep things organized, your Inbox contacts are kept separate from your Dashboard contacts.

Adding contacts to Inbox

There are three ways that you can add contacts to Inbox:

  • By importing a CSV file. This option is great for bulk uploads, as you can add up to 100,000 contacts at a time. Use this option if you're migrating contacts from an old system to Inbox.

  • By manually adding an individual contact. This option is useful if you have a small number of existing contacts that you'd like to start chatting with through Inbox, or if a customer has contacted you on a channel that's not connected to Inbox.

  • By adding a contact from a ticket. This option is useful when a customer has reached out to you who has reached out to you on a channel that's connected to Inbox, and they've given you their contact information while you've been chatting to them.
