What Is The Priority Inbox?

This article covers the Priority Inbox which is intended to display important messages that you might need to view and respond to. Messages will be displayed in the Priority Inbox if you select the option for alerts to be brought into the Inbox when setting up a posting service.

The Priority Inbox is essentially an alerts view and, as outlined below, there will be delays between when a message is left on a social channel and when it's displayed in the Priority Inbox. Streams, however, will display updates in real time and, once you add a Stream service or one is added automatically when adding a posting service, the Stream will be available to select from the menu to the right of the Compose Box.

Please Note:
There can be a 1 - 2 hour delay for messages to be brought from your social channels into the Priority Inbox as messages will need to be analyzed for sentiment. To monitor your social channels in real time, please set up a Stream where possible.


1. By clicking on Engage and then Inbox the Priority Inbox will be displayed by default. 


2. You can respond to messages from the Priority Inbox as well as re-posting to share it on your own social channels, etc. You can also Translate, Archive or Assign a message as a task if you click on the 3 dots on the right side of the other icons.

Please Note:
The options will vary depending on the social channel the message has come from.

3.  The dots at the beginning of the comments are showing the predicted Sentiment of the content of the comment. Grey stands for Neutral, Green for Positive and Red for Negative sentiments.

Please Note:
Updates to the Priority Inbox are linked to services where you've selected for updates to be added to the Priority Inbox in the settings for that service. These are normally services that enable you to post to the related social account / page. Streams are normally a separate service from the service that enables you to post and therefore, when you look to set up a new stream, this use up a service allocation.

10. You can Search for words in the body of posts.
