Understanding individual inboxes
Although you probably initially started using Front to manage team inboxes more effectively (ones like email@example.com), you may find it convenient to add your individual inbox (probably something like firstname.lastname@example.org) to your Front setup so you can check all of your email in one place and work in Front full time.
How it works
By default, emails arriving in your individual inbox will stay private unless you choose to share them with another team member.
To share a single message at a time from your individual inbox, you can take any of the following actions:
- Assign the message to another team member
- Mention a team member in a comment on the message
- Move the message to another team inbox (then it will be shared with the people who can access that inbox)
You can also share your entire individual inbox with a team member, if you like.
How to set up your individual inbox
Open Settings by clicking on your profile image in the upper left corner of Front. Click My inboxes, then Add an individual inbox.
Select your individual inbox type from the list. Most users add their work email address (like email@example.com), but you could choose any type you need.
Fill in the account you want to connect and name the inbox. For example, you could call it "Work email". Click Next.
Decide if anyone else should have access to your individual inbox. It's private by default, so only have access unless you check the box next to one of your teammates in this list.
Click Create inbox. If your work email is a G Suite (Google Apps) domain, your last 10k emails will be imported into Front automatically.
