Rule condition keywords can now be case-sensitive

 

Improvement

  

You can now make subject, body, and header condition keywords case-sensitive. For example, if you’d like to extract country codes for Australia and India, you could set up the rule condition to be case sensitive for “AU” and “IN”.

Coming to you live from the Mac App Store

 

New

  

The Front desktop app is now available for all to download from the Mac App Store! IT teams can now easily distribute the Front app effectively across their organizations.

Updated Developer Settings page

 

New

  

We’ve released a fully redesigned Developer Settings page to all customers that makes it much easier for developers to build and manage apps on Front’s platform. The new page allows developers to self-serve more of the development process and make use of multiple APIs (like a plugin that also has an OAuth client) in a single app. Behind the scenes, we’ve also significantly improved our platform architecture and APIs to scale for the long term.

Other notable changes:

  • The Plugins & API tab has been renamed to Imports

  • The Imports tab now only contain importers for Freshdesk, Office 365, Zendesk, and Help Scout

  • Plugin and API token management have been moved to the Developers tab

Compose and respond faster with quick insert commands

 

New

  

Composing and responding to customer messages just got a whole lot faster! Type a forward slash in the composer to easily insert a message template or scheduling link at your fingertips. For example, type “/template” to search and insert a message template, or create a new one if you don't already have templates. You can also type “/schedule” to search and insert a scheduling link, or create a new one if you don't already have scheduling links.

Share conversation access instantly

 

Improvement

  

It has been a long-standing pain point that sharing conversation message links leads to teammates receiving “you don’t have access” notifications. Front launched a new default behavior for conversation and message links that will instantly grant access to any Front user within your company who clicks the link.

This only applies to net-new conversation and message links created from December 2022 onwards. For more details, check out this help center article.
