What is a shared inbox?

A shared inbox allows your team to send and receive messages from a wide variety of channels, including SMS, MMS, Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, Apple Business Messages, and many more. All of your team members can read and respond to messages from desktop or their mobile phones.

How do businesses use shared inboxes?

Brands use shared inboxes across all areas of the business where multiple people need to monitor and respond to incoming messages. Shared inboxes centralize communication, streamline workflows, and ensure that all team members have the visibility they need to contribute to conversations.


Shared inboxes offer a wide range of productivity features to help teams organize and prioritize their workload so no message is overlooked or left unanswered. Agents can assign messages to specific team members, marked conversations as completed, or categorize texts using tags. Heymarket’s shared inboxes includes message threading, and internal notes, enabling teams to work together efficiently and provide timely responses to customers or stakeholders.
