We like it... but there are a few things we would like to share.

1) We have 3 stores and it's VERY hard to switch between each chat. We have to log out of each store and then log into the 1 store we want to chat with.
2) When the conversation is done it would be great to have a "copy conversation" button. We have a database and we save all customer conversations.
3) We have 3 people who respond to messages.... it would be great when the conversation is closed an email goes out stating that so the other agents know it has been handled and no need to long in and respond.

Great basic chat support system, native to shopify. Would like to see a few things before moving to Shopify Inbox full time.

1. Initiate ticket via email. If your customers email you for support, you can't use Shopify Inbox. All tickets must be initiated in chat first.

2. Shopify Inbox recently lost the ability to connect to social media messengers like Instagram and Facebook, as well as Apple's iMessage. This was a big step back; hopefully it returns.

3. Shopify Magic surfaced answers. Right now, Magic is only used for the merchant to pre-fill quick answers that the customer needs to click. The AI should be able to pull answers from around the website, such as product pages, blog articles, policies, etc.

due to the type of equipment we sell in our online store it seem that we do not see a lot of B2B customers.

Incredible app on so many levels. Shopify has done a good job keeping the app incredibly simple, easy to use and cross-device. That being said, this app lacks some very basic integration tools that knock it down from 5 to 3 stars. It would be amazing if it could do something as simple as integrate with Google sheets for reporting, Slack for notification and team tracking, etc. A Zapier integration would be really appreciated!

Really needs voice or video connection to the customer for better customer service.

Works well, but the limitation of not being able to attach files (pdf invoices / quotes for example) is a big isssue.

Great potential BUT so many flaws that I'm looking for an alternative now....

1-Like all other reviews, I don't like that profiles are being created when someone enters their email address - I doubt this is even legal (following current privacy/GDPR regulations)

2-The fact that customer have to screenshot an image so I can see what product they're talking about is not practical. The app should be able to automatically "capture" whatever product-page they're contacting me from (other apps do this).

3-I should be able to reply to these people via text (instead of -or as well as - email). I've lost sales because of this. A customer may not see a reply if it's sent to their email inbox, even if I reply within minutes. That email may even end up in their spam folder and I don't have the time to be chasing POTENTIAL-customers individually.

Good things: the design is beautiful. Installing the application super easy. The FAQs feature is beautifully designed and so easy to use/customise (the faq-suggestions given are amazing).
