November has been a huge month for Respond and our incredible customers! Though the holidays are just around the corner we’re continuing to improve the product and experience at a blistering pace.

Working smarter: Automation features in Respond

One of the most powerful new features to come to Respond are automations. Respond can now auto-tag, route, assign and filter your conversations based on a number of criteria including keywords, phrases, language and a whole lot more.

With automations, we’re helping teams separate their support and marketing conversations, assign items to the right team member and even filter out things like auto-status updates and spam.

Now available: HelpScout Docs integration

We’re huge fans of HelpScout. So it only felt natural to bring these products even closer together. You can now include a HelpScout article directly into your Respond replies:


And we’re just getting started. We’ve got a ton more planned for HelpScout (and other helpdesks) too. Stay tuned!

Better, easier-to-read reporting features

We’ve released a brand new reporting experience with the key metrics you need front and center. We’ve also added new data export options and a tag reporting feature:


For that one customer or conversation you need to find: Better search

It’s now easier than ever to find a past conversation with a customer. Search by customer name or social username to quickly find conversations across Twitter and Facebook:


Bulk Editing

Maybe a new article just went viral or you’ve just launched a new product. Either way you can use our new bulk editing feature to select multiple conversations and quickly tag, assign, or close all in one fell swoop:


Track Respond’s latest updates in real-time

Be the first to know with our new in-app release notifications (huge thanks to Headway). We’ve even got a detailed set of release notes if that’s your thing. You’ll never miss another product update:
