Before getting started

You will need:

Create Inbox Step

The Create Inbox step enables the connection between Flow Builder and Inbox. You can configure several options to match your desired use case:

  • Tags: Add or remove tags that will be applied to the created ticket. You can use tags to route tickets to the right agents.

  • Languages: Add the language you want to associate with the created ticket and route tickets to the right agents.

  • Callback URL: Here, you can set up an URL/webhook to receive updates every time the status of the Inbox ticket changes - from its creation to its resolution. All ticket data, including the status, channel, conversation, contact, tags, sentiment, and the agent will be included.

  • Enable Handle long wait times automation: an automated message in case the ticket isn't picked up within a defined time.

  • Enable Handle failures feature: additional branch handling the case when an error occurs.

📝 Any step that comes after the Create Inbox step in a Flow will be executed only after the ticket created by the step in Inbox has been moved to the Resolved status:
