The inbox is a unified messaging platform that allows you to control all of your communication with guests from all sources such as Airbnb (including multiple accounts), Booking.com, HomeAway, Agoda, Expedia, etc. And in addition, new incoming messages will appear in the Inbox in real time - no need to refresh!
Why should I use Guesty's inbox?
In the thread you can track all of the communication with the guest, it means that if you started the conversation on Airbnb, sent check-in instructions over email, and lock-box code in an SMS, it will all show as one coherent conversation.
- Airbnb - sends the message over Airbnb's platform. Currently, the functionality of sending messages inside a platform's messaging system is limited only to reservations originated from Airbnb.
- Email - sends a direct email to the guest, based on its default email address (can be edited in the Guest widget on the right bar).
- SMS - sends an SMS message to the guest's default phone number (can be edited in the Guest widget on the right bar).
Attachments can be received in the message thread via your guest's email or an Airbnb message. We support ‘doc’, ‘gif’, ‘jpg’, ‘jpeg’, ‘mp4’, ‘pdf’, ‘png’, ‘xls’ files.
- Use the search bar for a conversation by guest name or reservation number.
- Use the filters to show tickets filtered by tags, cities, listings, assignees and reservation status.
- Sort conversations by time or by priority.
Direct Reservation Management
Pre-Approve Airbnb inquires, Approve/Decline reserved reservations directly from the conversation itself.
Highly detailed conversation tickets that enable you to prioritize at a quick glance and simplify decision making. Also, you can archive conversations once handled.
Each conversation ticket preview contains the guest's name, last message time, message preview, unread/read indication, and a reservation progress bar (upcoming stay date, currently staying, checked out).
Use the bottom status icons to switch between showing open conversations , snoozed conversations or archived ones .
If a guest responds to an archived message, the message will automatically go back to the inbox and will show as unread
Use the top left action buttons to perform various actions such as mark as read/unread, assign/unassign to a team member, snooze a conversation and archive. You can easily move an item from the open conversations list to the archived list and back. When the item is in the open conversations list, you have the 'Move to archived' action , and when in the archived list you have the 'Move to open' action in the actions button section.
Useful widgets that provide you with all the information you need right inside the inbox such as reservation info, guests' details, listing data, and quick links.
