How to Tag a Message or Conversation

Updated on : September 8, 2022

Message Tags are used to tag messages or conversations in a ticket. Both public and private notes tagging are supported. It can be used to add more context to the message or conversation. You can also use it to categorize or filter. These tags are not exposed to the customer for internal categorization purposes.

The difference between a Ticket Tag and message tag is that ticket tag is added to the whole ticket whereas a message tag is used to tag a particular message. Tag added in message is not added to a ticket tag.

One of the use is, meeting-notes in a conversation can be tagged  “meeting-notes” and all the meeting notes activities across the organization are viewed in one view using the conversation report. Another example is logging a call note and tagging message with the tag “call-notes”.

Note: The message tagging feature is only available in the Agent Portal. It can be used only by Agents, not by customers.
