Archiving and Deleting Chat Conversations

💡 A great way to keep your inbox organised is by archiving past conversations.

What is archiving?

Archiving helps to keep your Inbox clutter-free by moving old chats into the Archive folder.

You can still access archived chats by switching to the Archive tab. Archived chats will automatically move back into your Inbox if you receive a new message from that customer.

Archiving a conversation is an Agent Side feature only – your customers will not see that they have been archived.

How do I archive a chat?

First, select whether to send your message by In-app, In-app and Email, or Email Only.

NB. If you click Send without selecting an option, GoSquared will select a message type-according to whether or not the user is online. You can read more about sending options from the GoSquared Inbox here.

Once you have selected your message medium and sent your message, simply click Archive and the message will be stored in the archive list of your Inbox sidebar.

NB. You can also type the slash command ‘/archive’ in the message input box

Send & Archive

You can select to Send & Archive a message simultaneously by following the steps below:

  1. Type a message into Inbox to your recipient
  2. Press cmd+shift+return to Send & Archive

Archiving vs. Deleting

Archiving does not permanently delete the conversations. You can manually move the chat back to your Inbox by clicking the Unarchive button or typing /unarchive in the message input box.

Delete message history

Message history is tied to each persons profile in Contacts. Therefore the only way to erase all history is to delete the profile from Customer Data Hub
