Adding an individual inbox
You likely started using Front to manage team inboxes more effectively, such as your firstname.lastname@example.org, and now you may find it convenient to add your individual inbox to Front as well. This way, you can check all of your email in one place and work in Front full time. Individual inboxes are private by default, but you can share conversations with teammates in a variety of ways, documented below.
Go to your Personal Settings, click on Inboxes, and click Add an individual inbox.
Fill out the name and description of your inbox. Click Create.
Choose a channel type from the menu. The most common individual channel type is Email, though you can add any channel type as an individual inbox that's compatible with your plan.
Follow the steps on screen to complete setting up for the channel type you've chosen. We have specific setup guides for the different channel types in this section of our Help Center.
Click Finish to complete.
Privacy and sharing
By default, emails arriving in your individual inbox will stay private unless you choose to share them with another team member.
Share specific messages
To share specific message from your individual inbox, you can take any of the following actions:
- Assign the message to another team member
- Mention a team member in a comment on the message
- Move the message to a team inbox, which allow the people who can access that inbox to see the message
- Create a private rule to automatically notify other teammates of certain messages, and your teammate will get a copy of the email in their Shared with me section.
Share whole private inbox
You can also share your entire individual inbox with a teammate if you'd like. Grant access by delegating your inbox to a teammate.
