Shared Inbox

TIDY's Shared Inbox feature is designed to make communicating with your cleaning and maintenance pros much easier.

Communication is Hard

We have heard from many customers about the pain of managing communication with cleaners and maintenance people on your properties. The problems include:

  • It is hard for teams to communicate as a team with cleaning & maintenance vendors. For example, what happens if the vendor's point of contact at your company is on vacation?
  • You want to communicate in the systems you already use (like Slack).
  • Pros want to work a different way (like SMS).

Many customers have tried things like shared WhatsApp or Slack channels, but these are unwieldly and not meant for this.

How Shared Inbox Makes Communication Easier

TIDY's Shared Inbox feature centralizes all communication in jobs into TIDY. Here is how it works:

  1. Anyone in your team can see all messages from the pro for a specific address or job. This allows your whole team to work together seamlessly. Someone on vacation? No problem. Anyone can step in.
  2. You can control permissions for users, granting limited access to people as needed.
  3. All messages sent using TIDY's apps or connected channels are visible to all users in your account, and tagged to a job for a more detailed history. This makes looking at "what happened?" easy.
  4. Anyone on your pro's team can see your messages from anyone on your team, so their team shares in this benefit.

To use this feature, just tap any job, and you will see the option to message your pro. Any user on your account who can see that job, can view messages and send them.

Notification Integrations (BETA)

You want communication tied into the tools you already use. We support Notification Integrations (in BETA, with an expected GA in Q3 2022). Notification Integrations takes the Shared Inbox to the next level, by allowing both you and your pros to get notifications where each of you independently prefer.

We support pretty much any integration, with our webhooks, open API, Zapier, and our pre-built library of integrations. So far, pros most often prefer SMS, and property managers most often prefer Slack. We support the following integrations, with more coming:

  • Slack
  • Microsoft Teams
  • Salesforce
  • Hubspot
  • Intercom
  • Monday.com
  • Asana
  • Pipedrive
  • Zoho
  • Zapier
  • Webhooks
  • API

If you ever want a new integration, please reach out!
