Facebook Inbox (Messenger)
- Select "Inbox" on the left navigation tool bar
- "Add" will show all the inbox messages for each location (determined by your date & filter selection)
- "Awaiting" will show all the people who have sent messages to your facebook inbox that have not been replied to "moved" to the "replied" tab
- "Replied" will show all the people who have sent messages and have received a reply or have been move to this replied tab
Features of Inbox
- facebook limits reply time to 24hrs to avoid "spam"
- If someone replies to you reply or sends a new message your 24hr reply time countdown timer will start over
- You can filter inbox messages by "good," "bad," "non applicant." "applicant awaiting," "applicant hired," "applicant not hired"
- You can sort by "newest" or "time limit"
- Newest inbox messages are the ones that were recently received
- Time limit message sorting is based on how much time you have left to reply
- Category and Status shows what a inbox message has been changed to (default is none). You will also see "applicant awaiting" and "awaiting response" depending on where you are in the conversation.
- If you received a facebook applicant's response to a facebook job posting you can update their "status" from "awaiting" to either "hired" or "not hired".
- By clicking Download Conversation you will get PDF of the entire conversation. A best practice is to share this with the team members at the location if you are replying on their behalf.
- To expedite this step you can click "Send Conversation", which will allow you to send this conversation via email to one or more team members.
- Summaries of the last 24hr conversations will automatically be emailed to all the recipients selected to receive facebook inbox message. This can be found under the location tab - under TEAM.
- Automatic "reminder" emails will be sent to all inbox email recipients within 2hr of when the reply time to reply to an inbox message expires.
- Click the EXCEL icon next to the date range to download a complete summary of all the applications based on your date range, filter and sort.
Best practice - if your time expires to reply to a inbox message and you have access to your location's facebook inbox you can always reply to the message directly through facebook.
