Using the integrations switcher

🎉July 2019: This feature will roll out to Front teams over the next several weeks!

Overview

One of the best parts of Front is that it integrates with your favorite tools for easy access to customer data and other apps from your inbox.

You can easily open your favorite integrations and toggle between them in the integrations switcher, which is always visible on the right side of Front.


Open and close integrations

The integrations switcher is the vertical sidebar on the right edge of your Front inbox. You will see a list of icons that represent each integration you have pinned as a favorite.
