New Inbox and TeamMail features!

screenshot_1553We’ve just overhauled the SFI Inbox!  It’s now more attractive, easier to use, and includes some nice new features such as filters and inline replies.  The SFI Inbox is also now mobile-friendly (works great on all mobile devices).

We’ve also made using TeamMail much easier and more fun!  Effective immediately, you can pop up a quick reply screen from anywhere you see the TeamMail envelope. You can do this from:

  • My Movers (coming soon)
  • Genealogy (coming soon)
  • Affiliate Snapshot (coming soon)
  • Stream

Just click the little envelope icon and a TeamMail screen will pop up.  It will also be pre-addressed to the affiliate, so all you have to do is compose your message and click “Send.” You message will be instantly delivered and appear instantly in the recipient’s inbox.  Quick, simple, and easy!

Another new TeamMail feature is that you can now choose to distribute messages via Inbox + email…OR…just the Inbox (“Inbox Only”).  There is no limit on how many messages you can send when using the Inbox Only option.  This is particularly important if you hit your TeamMail distribution limit during the month.  Now, if you hit your limit (or you just want to send more messages without worrying about hitting your limit), you can use the Inbox Only option to get your messages out.

Note: If the affiliate you’re messaging has a confirmed bad email address, Inbox Only will be selected for you (with no option to use the Inbox + email option).

There’s another major feature that comes with the Inbox Only option.  That is, when using the Inbox Only (no email) option, you can now attach images to your TeamMail messages!  Attaching images is a great way to improve your communications.  For example, if you’re teaching a PSA how to do something, you can now attach an instructive image.  Or if you’re congratulating someone, perhaps a fun animated image.

Special Note: At this time, the pop-up TeamMail message composition screen works only for individual messages.  Once we’ve established that the user interface is working as planned, we will roll out this same functionality to Group Messaging from the Genealogy so that you can distribute unlimited Inbox Only group messages and include images with your group messages, too!
