Updating your Settings and Individual Preferences
Find your Settings by clicking your avatar in the top left corner of Front.
From here you can customize your workspace and account preferences to best fit you. Here's an overview of what you'll find in each menu.
Change your username, reset or change your password, or enable two-factor authentication.
Connect an email address or another account to sync with Front — it will only be visible to you, not your team.
Automate repetitive tasks for your individual inbox, like sending auto-replies or tagging messages based on the sender or keywords.
Create or delete private tags (you can tell when you use a private tag by whether it has a lock symbol on it).
Change your Front workflow options — choose the default email address your messages are sent from, make Front your default email client, set your snooze timing options, and more.
Create or edit your private canned responses (which only you can use) or set your vacation auto-responder.
Create a signature for every occasion — Front designates the first signature as the default, so make sure the one you usually want to use is at the top.
Enable desktop notifications, mobile push notifications, or email notifications for activities you care about, like being mentioned in a comment or receiving a new message.
Change the appearance of your navigation and settings panel. Choose between a light or dark theme.
Choose between 'Send' or 'Send + Archive' as your default send button behavior.
Choose between 'Reply' or 'Reply all' as your default reply button behavior.
Reply or forward in new conversation
If you want every reply or forwarded message to be tracked as a separate conversation enable this setting.
Auto-subscribe on comment
If enabled, automatically subscribe to a conversation after posting a comment on a conversation. Any additional activities on the conversation will resurface it back in your Inbox.
Auto-subscribe on reply
If enabled, automatically subscribe to a conversation after replying to a message on a conversation. Any additional activities on the conversation will resurface it back in your Inbox.
Mute on move from individual to team inbox
If enabled, automatically mute conversations when you move them from your private inbox to a team inbox. Any additional activities on the conversation will not resurface it back in your Inbox. Only an @mention will resurface the conversation back into your Inbox.
Mute on unassign
If enabled, automatically mute conversations when you unassign a conversation from yourself. Any additional activities on the conversation will not resurface it back in your Inbox. Only an @mention will resurface the conversation back into your Inbox.
"Enter" to send in chat
Chat channels like Facebook, Intercom, and Smooch have light-weight composers that allow you to respond quickly. Enabling this preference will make it so your messages are sent when you hit 'Enter'.
Reply in a new window
Replying to a message will pop out an external composer.
The channel you set here will be used whenever you reply to a conversation.
Allows you to leverage the Gmail shortcuts in tandem with Front shortcuts.
Paste as text
Strip formatting when you paste text in Front's composer
No attachment warning
If we think you meant to add an attachment but didn't, we will alert you.
Many recipients warning
Always surface a confirmation when you send an email to more than 10 recipients.
When the conversation you are on disappears (archive, sent), determine the conversation you want to see: the one above or the one below it. Choose Smart if you want the next conversation selected to be dependent on which direction you were just navigating.
If enabled, attachments will also be printed when printing a message.
Long time format
Choose what format you want to see time in – short (12 hour clock) or long (24 hour clock)
Determine which snooze timings to display in your snooze/reminder menus.
Send later timings
Determine which sent later timings to display in your send later menus.
Determine your default composer format (HTML or Markdown)
Canned response #1 -#5

We will use this when you store a phone number without a prefix.
