Welcome to the E-mails section. The mluvii email client allows you to connect mailboxes and manage incoming and outgoing mail in a single mluvii environment. As an operator, you will be able to receive all requests in a unified queue, saving you time whether you are communicating with a client in chat or via email.
You can find the E-mails section in your operator interface under the envelope icon immediately below the Operator tab. The notification next to the icon shows the current number of incoming messages.
Emails is a switchable feature of mluvii. If you do not see the section and would like to use emails in mluvii, please contact your sales person or contact us via chat on our website.
On this page you will learn about the individual parts of the email client in mluvii:
The section is divided into three parts. The right side of the screen shows open email messages. The top left shows the emails that are assigned to the appropriate operator. Below that is a list of emails received by the operator. The size of these two windows can be adjusted by moving the split bar. The email messages are sorted in the queue from oldest to newest.
Note: Emails contained at the top are typically assigned to multiple operators at once and are available to multiple operators until someone actually receives them.
By clicking on the preview of the associated message, you can preview the selected email. You can accept a pending email by hovering over a specific email using the Accept button. Similarly, you can accept the message by clicking the Accept button in the top right corner of the preview.
The Ignore button in the upper right corner is used to clear spam, or emails that are no longer needed to be responded to (e.g. Thank you.) An ignored email will disappear from your request queue and can only be returned by your company administrator.
SLA of emails
If you have SLA set at the mailbox level, emails in the unified queue will be coloured. An email message that has less than an hour to expire will be coloured yellow. If the value is exceeded, the color will change to red. Within the email message, you can also see how much time is left before the SLA expires, or how long ago the email expired.
Manage multiple mailboxes
You can also manage multiple mailboxes at once (for example, email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org) using the mluvii email client. You can also choose which mailbox you want to send the message from. To change the sender, click the button with the open envelope and the name of the mailbox.
The Redirect button in the email message detail offers the option to redirect the email to a specific operator or group (identical behavior to webchat redirection). This redirection will be useful, for example, when your mailbox receives a request for another department.
You can tag an email with one or more tags Email tagging is used, as with sessions, to tag individual messages, for example, by topic or seasonal campaign. To make tagging even easier to understand, you can use color labels to differentiate them. You can read more about tag management in Application.
Tag previews are located under the subject of the email or under the button below, where you can also search.
At the top right of the message is the date and time the email was received and a Info icon to display additional details about a particular message (such as sender, recipient, date, and subject).
Note: If you do not see a preview of incoming emails, it is possible that this action has been disabled by an administrator, who is also the only one with permissions to enable it.
Note 2: Added tags are always associated with the entire thread of email messages.
As with webchat, you can ignore, forward, tag or view basic information about emails you have received. You can also use the button in the top menu to change the sender of an email.** This option is useful if you manage multiple connected company mailboxes in mluvii.
If the operator has accidentally received an email or needs to return it to the incoming email queue for some other reason, the Return button located in the upper right corner can be used. The message is then moved back to the common inbox queue. This function is switchable at the level of the e-mail box.
The application allows you to change the email address of the recipient to whom the operator is replying. This is particularly useful if the client has entered their email address in the wrong format in an offline form (e.g. "gmail.cz") or expressed a preference to be contacted at a different address.
Tip: In cases where you are filling in a recipient's email address, mluvii will whisper to you recipient addresses that have been used in the past - so they are stored in the contacts directory.
Working with e-mail
The Text Formatting menu appears when you click on the A icon. The choices are:
setting the text type (heading, subheading, normal),
bold, italic, underline,
numbered list, bullets,
text alignment, link attachment and delete formatting.
The entire text can be deleted using the basket icon.
To insert an attachment to an email, use the staples icon. You can then:
select or search the saved files in the mluvii environment,
browse files on your computer,
insert an image using the CTRL+V keyboard shortcut,
or simply drag and drop a file.
If the received mail includes an unsupported file type in an attachment, the operator is informed so that they can request the attachment from the sender in another supported format.
The written messages are automatically stored in the thread and can be returned to by the operator.
After clicking the Send button, the operator has 5 seconds to cancel the action for each email message thanks to the Suspend Send feature.
An incoming message received by the operator can be forwarded to another email address using the forward button. When forwarding an email, you can select which attachments from the email thread will be included in the forwarded conversation. It is also possible to add notes to the thread for internal operator use. These notes are visible only to the mluvii user and are not visible to the client.
The operator can create a completely new email using the _New button located at the top of the email queue. In this case, the subject, recipient and message text must be filled in. Using the drop-down menu, it is possible to change the sender's address (in case you have multiple e-mail boxes connected). You can work with a new e-mail in the same way as with received messages. You can scroll around the desktop and minimize the window with the opened email. It is possible to have multiple messages open at the same time. Unsubscribed messages appear as additional items in the list of received emails.
Since version 2.81 it is possible to add parameters to emails. Parameters in emails are especially useful in case of integrations to your systems.
You can now also display email parameters in the table All emails (Threads tab). As an admin, you have a perfect overview of the parameters assigned to each email thread and can export their values to a .csv file that can be further processed outside the mluvii application.
