We are seeing email threads increasingly being passed from team to team as a case progresses through stage gates. Now, you can use tags to progress these stage gates so everyone knows the status of an email, who the owner is and the next steps to be taken.
In the example below, we have created an escalation workflow. When an email needs to be escalated to a manager, the only action that needs to be taken is the tag #escalation is used. This triggers a rule which assigns the email to the manager with a short note asking them to review.
How to replicate:
- Create your tag
- Create your rule
- Find some other examples

Other examples could be:
- Spam - If an email is labelled as spam, it's automatically deleted
- Use "post chat to team" to give guidance on what process to follow next
