Pros: From the moment you launch either the desktop, web or mobile views, Front is an easy-on-the-eyes tool for processing high volumes of email in an efficient way. Unlike other solutions I have explored, Front finds the right balance between traditional inbox and ticket-based helpdesks -- both of which have strengths for digital comms power users. In Front you will find useful tools for snoozing messages, discussing messages in an iMessage-style chat and most importantly, delegating emails to specific team members using the 'Assign To' function. Teams that utilize Slack in their workflows will appreciate Front's Slack integration which lets you seamlessly move conversations to and from the chat platform. Two smaller but highly valuable features are the ability to set a buffer between when you click send on an email and when the message is actually sent, allowing you to cancel a misfired email, and the auto BCC feature which is great for logging emails in our CRM.

Cons: There are two annoyances I have with Front. First, the app doesn't seem to properly process received calendar invitations. Instead of allowing me to accept, decline or otherwise respond to invitations, Front simply downloads the .ics file, which is then opened in my default calendar app, Outlook. Second, though Front syncs with Office 365, messages deleted in Front are not removed from Outlook. For some users this may be beneficial, but for me it creates extra work and annoyance.

Overall: Overall, Front is a pleasure to use because it is feature-filled yet not overwhelming, and certainly one of more aesthetically-pleasing apps in our workflow. I appreciate that as I use Front, I am motivated to quickly process messages and get to inbox zero.

Pros: Front allows teams to work in a more organized flow with incoming emails. One of the ways we have been able to utilize Front has been to group all emails for specific teams into Team inboxes and then team members can take emails out of the queue and work to bring the box to zero. This has saved us a lot of time from trying to organize emails in outlook.

The main selling feature for us however was the ability to create a custom plugin in the panel on the right as well as pull data from the current conversation from the Front API that is well built. This allows us to customize our flow.

Front also has several default integrations some more useful than others. They seem to be growing at a large pace so you can expect to see major enhancements with the product in the future.

Cons: The price can be a little high per user and the Enterprise version doesn't seem to offer the kinds of benefits you would want to see for such a large price jump. There also seem to be some features on enterprise that feel like they should be one tier down like user roles and authorization.

Overall: Major time savings and better organization is the key benefit we get as well as being able to build our own custom plugins.

Pros: Easy to use, scalable to any size company and has a fantastic phone app.

Cons: No issues so far.

Overall: My company uses Front in a way that it was not created. I say this because the company accommodated our use rather than letting us go. Because of this allowance, they have made our day to day use of hundreds of emails efficient and effective. We are able to assign incoming email, share with unlimited employees and a number of integrations keeps the app connected to our CRM and other integral apps. Folders allow us to keep a very organized view of our incoming mail stream with employees that are offsite or in different countries.

The number one reason for choosing Front was their phone app. Beautifully designed and easy enough to use by my least technical employee with ease. Compatible with IOS and Android. There are regualr upgrades so they are a growing and innovative group of people.

Their willingness to work with us and even take suggestions for upgrades was a deciding factor to stick with Front.

Recommendations to other buyers: Work with the company if there is only one thing that is not working for you. Great developers and a willingness to try new options is a big selling point.

Pros: Front is an amazingly powerful tool backed by a team of professionals who provide us with the ability to manage our email as a team. We work together to help our customers succeed and share an email account - with Front we're able to assign out emails, have thread-specific chats by mentioning team members and use the Sequences feature to send personalized messages to our customers. Using Front has increased our communication internally and has dramatically improved our efficiency when addressing customer requests. Sequences allow us to stay personal and deliver proactive outreach without sacrificing time.

Cons: Front is a growing company which means they roll out updates from time-to-time - anytime there are bugs they are quick to address the concerns. The CSM team and technical support have been super helpful anytime we've run into issues.

Excellent tool for a team that has a number of email accounts!

Pros: Front if used correctly can be a powerful service. We use it for our company. Everyone has access to Front with their personal account (after they get invited) and they can manage themselves which inboxes to receive emails from. The main features that I see are the following:

- User friendly interface

- Customization

- Excellent support

All in all I would recommend it for anyone searching for such a service. We are very pleased so far.

Cons: Front hasn't got many things going the wrong way. If I should say something that would be that at first glance it might be a bit too much and intimidating to have all those inboxes and emails coming in but after you find your way around Front you realize that it was just wedding jitters! Everything turns out fine in the end :)

Overall: Centralized mail management was the main reason for choosing Front. It is a great tool indeed.

One of the worst email applications I've ever used

Ease of Use

Features & Functionality

Pros: The overall look of Front is simple, which is nice. The snooze function on emails. The support staff were friendly and quick to answer.

Cons: My company switched my team over to Front after a couple people who shared an inbox had issues with managing it. I didn't have a shared inbox, but struggled with the lack of functionality for just personal inboxes. There are so many missed functionalities to Front it made my job incredibly inefficient. I found myself spending more time doing my job which consists of heavy emailing because of Front problems. 1. No calendar. Cannot make appointments, set up meetings, etc. 2. Unable to edit messages in a previous thread. Say someone sends you a list of questions. You cannot just answer next to their list in the previous email and say "see below." 3. Archiving messages... when we first switched to Front, the management team used it for a few weeks to test it. When the team was instructed to switch within the next couple weeks, and BOOM thousands of emails that Front could not autoarchive. I had about 10 emails in Outlook during the switch. The front inbox had accumulated thousands over the course of the management test period. Front could only auto archive shared inboxes, not personal. I had to spend 20 minutes selecting 3000 emails to auto archive since it didn't sync correctly with Outlook. 4. Saving emails... you can't. You only have the option to send a link of the email which only works for those that also used front. 5. You cannot edit pasted tables in front, as far as formatting goes. No deletion of columns or making rows smaller. 6. No red flags or categorizing. Often I'd keep emails in Outlook and red flag them to remind myself to check on it before I leave. No flagging in Outlook. This is replaced by snoozing in Front to make it reappear later, but I do miss the flag option. 7. You archive something in someone else's inbox that they share with you... it archives in their inbox, too. 8. No options to make folders. You want to move emails to a folder to refer to later? You cannot. I could go on and on and ended up emailing a list of 18 problems after using Front for the first 3 months to management who sent to Front support. The responses were basically they hope to rollout that feature one day. Which obviously doesn't help now.

Pros: We love using this for syncing with Pipedrive - the implementation was easy. The powerful autoresponders are helpful as well. On any given day, we can have a different auto responder, which is great because we're always in a dedicated project on Wednesdays and out of office on Fridays. It's also a bonus that send later is active right out of the box - so when I'm working on emails after my kids are in bed they show up to my clients as sent at 7am the next morning. Set up wasn't too bad since I had already used Support Bee previously. The mobile app is solid as well, though my Android phone tells me it takes a lot of battery power. I wish it was listed as a native email provider on Andoid phones - so right now if I click on a email link in my Pipedrive App, I can't have it open in Front. Front is better than Pipedrive for sending emails since I can drop screenshots inline in emails in Front - something we do on a daily basis. I recommended this to a client who initially liked the idea that it connected with Shopify, showing order information beside each email (see cons for rest of the story). It's normal email stuff works just fine as well - removing formatting, adding bullets, bold, etc all work as expected. As an admin, I like having the ability to make sure my team is keeping on top of shared emails. Additionally, when a teammate needs some help on a message, they can share it with me to help advise them.

Cons: Buyer beware on the TOS regarding refunds. I set this up for a client and got them paid up as an annual client with several users. However, it wasn't a good fit for them. I was not pleased to find out Front does not offer pro-rated refunds, which is costing my client a lot of money and jeopardizing my relationship with them. Customer services was unsympathetic. For this reason I can't recommend Front anymore. If a user signs up with an annual plan, they will at some point be losing money, not saving it - unless they cancel on the anniversary of when they started. Just because it's in the TOS doesn't mean it's the right thing to do: Front is one of the companies that needs to learn this.

Front offers unsurpassed visibility between customers and your support staff.

Pros: Front allows my support team to fully engage with customers and each other across platforms all within Front. We're able to see the Tweet that customer sent and if they sent multiple emails about an issue. It allows us to give their time the highest value and the highest productivity for ourselves.

Cons: Their pricing structure is limiting with cost per user and price hikes for additional features that would benefit the platform and experience for every user. Their support staff can also be slower to respond than would be expected for a support platform.

Overall: This software is the only command center for support that you need to fully engage with customers.

Pros: First, front streamlines all of our team communication in one place. It allows for teams to have visibility on incoming messages/inquiries, assign them to the appropriate staff member, and even have internal conversations/notes that are not visible to the customer. You can also set reminders, alerts (i.e. snoozing a conversation for a few days), and set time-saving canned/saved responses. It's incredibly user-friendly.

Cons: First, It's very expensive.

Pros: I work remotely, as does the rest of the team I belong to, and using Front to coordinate client emails is essential to presenting a united front in terms of responses and feedback. The ability to tag, comment and reassign is especially helpful in providing clients with a consistent and uniform voice when answering.

Cons: If I had something that I like least about Front, it is the problems that can arise from someone re-opening an already archived email. It can cause the email to show up in the inbox of the individual who archived it and nothing can be done with it, and it is a pain to make it re-archive.

Pros: My company is a call center, and we use Front to help organize and track our leads. Often our customer service department will take web chats, which are then viewed by sales through front. We really enjoy the ability to sort multiple inboxes, add tags as well as comments. We also have many users, so each representative can track the leads they have submitted, tagged or commented on.

Cons: We came to a point where our growth was too large for Front alone. We designed our own web application to work in tandem with front, because the reporting was not the easiest to use.

Pros: Front App, which is a mail management software, hits all the right marks. We use it for e-commerce and received 100s of emails a day. Front has easy to use Filter to filter out the important ones from the unimportant ones. We have used it for over a year and never had a single complaint. We love this app! Also, their customer service (which we rarely use) is A+ as well.

Cons: I think they adjusted their pricing a little bit but otherwise all good. We contacted them about pricing and were promptly grandfathered in with our original plan.

Pros: The interface is very attractive in comparison with other software. I really like the option that allows you to assign emails on-the-go and the way it organizes your mail. Also, that you can add your own automated responses which makes easier your workflow when sending important emails to clients.

Cons: I think the monster faces that the software had initially were a unique characteristic that nobody else had. You should switch back to that version or add the option.

Usually, the app takes some time to load and it can be very frustrating. Seeing things load quickly, or at the very least improves the user experience.

Overall: I can answer emails on-the-go and it allows me to sync it with my salesforce account.

Pros: Front allows our small team to share an inbox of customer support emails, in addition to the calls we receive, and organize them to best see the types of emails that we are receiving. Additionally, the tags allow us to track what types of emails and calls we receive to determine our weaknesses.

Cons: I would like to see the calls and emails integrated into the same threads within the customer history page in a timeline. Additionally, I wish Front integrated with other software in a more productive manner.

Pros: This software makes it easy to collaborate on emails, gives staff accountability, has fair audit features, and if you pay enough money, the ability to create additional roles is also pretty nice.

Cons: No built-in spam filtering. Have to use your own email provider for that. Extras like additional roles and the ability to separate teams is too expensive. The software can't be customized aside from creating rules, which don't always cover what you needed done.

Overall: After a year of using it, the software has definitely shown that if you're not collaborating on emails, you've been missing out. BUT, the lack of flexibility in the software has me searching out other options for an email client.

Pros: I can share and comment on threads with the rest of my team. As an admin, I also have granular control over users' access permissions to email inboxes.

Cons: The disregard the little details over and over again in favor of new updates. The app (iOS especially) makes me wait a lot of times when it shouldn't, making it feel slow in stark contrast to other mail apps. Things don't load instantly. Contacts aren't cached. Their UI designers blatantly disregard Android / iOS / Mac / web design conventions (which are there for a reason) in favor of their own convoluted system. Their release notes are boring and they make me update my app even when it's perfectly usable (this condescending attitude is particularly annoying). Many of these small glitches have actually led to catastrophic disasters within my team like unwittingly sending followup emails ("sequences") to 200+ recipients. My advice to them: focus on stabilizing your current, buggy product rather than trying to introduce a million features that don't work 100%.

Overall: Ability to respond to and manage emails as a team.

Front is generally great but there are a few features that are not fully fledged out.

Pros: I love how it connects my other products and especially the feature about assigning or looping in other team members and creating a thread about an email. It keeps things organized and makes my life less confusing!

Cons: I don't like the send later functionality. The software doesn't mention or give the option to select time zone, which can be an issue when you work across many offices, and also doesn't have a summary or a warning before firing off an email. I think it would be more beneficial to schedule a send and then have the ability to edit the delivery time, access those emails etc in a clear and easy way

Pros: I love how easy it is to arrange your inboxes in an orderly way and how easy it is to respond and archive emails. It makes it look very organized - I like that you can have all company inboxes and anyone can work on an email. I like that I can mention a colleague on an email I want her/him to respond to.

Cons: I would like the option to see what my colleague is writing on a ticket that's inside a shared inbox. I think that would be a useful tool to add.

Overall: The ability to work on shared emails and respond to emails efficiently. The ability to monitor the emails and provide QA feedback.

Comments: Our customer support team has been using FrontApp for the past year and it's totally streamlined our inbox management. You can comment on emails before responding, assign them to various people to respond, etc. It's so much easier to assign ownership to our team, to keep things from falling through the cracks.

Pros: They have a desktop app (+ mobile & web), they support multiple channels (emails, SMS, phone calls, tweets, Facebook messages, in app messages etc.), you can easily collaborate on drafts and see responses from different team members, email templates and reminders are very handy! If you want to manage your email all in one place you can add your individual inbox as well. And their customer support is top-notch!

Cons: They don't offer a live chat feature yet - we use Olark for that.

Pros: In this modern era, we are paid for numerous prospects to modify the world, and even fewer while these prospects are with a collection of diligent, compassionate, and modest persons. I can effortlessly say Front App is one of these prospects. In my time here, I have been continuously challenged by the working team's grit and inquisitiveness; asking hard questions to explain hard problems. Furthermore, I am continually enthused by how everybody celebrates their achievements or be trained from their stumbles with an air of elegance, forever determined for the continuous enhancement as an individual, for their team, and for the corporation.

Cons: Individuals here are super fervent concerning what they achieve, but occasionally that can direct to irregular work/life stability. It is also quite costly.

Overall: Front App offers the whole thing you would desire from a team-based support and email management system. The pricing form may not effort for all types of corporation.

Pros: Easy set-up, great usability and finally a good way to work on emails together.

Cons: Nothing about the Front email software. The Front chat software could use some optimization I guess. For example: I don't think the messages in the Front app are clear wether it's an email or chat. While chat is more urgent than responding to an email, it would be better if these two are more separated from each other.

Overall: Really, really good!

Pros: It is very flexible and allows you to do a lot of what you need.

Cons: It is very expensive per user.

Overall: Front is very flexible we use it to house all our emailed leads and we use it as our system to respond to chat. It has some limits but we have been able to do a lot of what we want with it, and it wasn't originally designed for that. It is however very expensive, so we have limited our user pool. Overall a good software.

Recommendations to other buyers: Talk to the customer service team about how it can apply to your company's needs. They are very helpful.

Comments: After being a loyal user of Front since I came across their website about a year ago, I couldn't even imagine using another email client. Front has made a tremendous impact with a number of organizations I consult with, significantly improving internal communications between team members and improving efficiency... in fact, I constantly find myself recommending Front to people I am speaking with. The team at Front actively listens and implements feedback from their users. They are constantly shipping new integrations and improvements. I would highly recommend Front for any organization looking to stay innovative, it's going to be the future of email.

Pros: Easy to use Always updating Always adding new integrations Great user interface Mobile app Affordable

Cons: I can no longer use any other email clients

Pros: I like the snoozing feature, as well as the API abilities since my company has built out a robust sidebar

Cons: Very buggy. For a while you had to scroll on the page in order to even send an email. It also doesn't have a 24 hour snooze option which is ridiculous and leads to all our emails being reopened at the exact same time. There should be an ability to create custom snooze times. The analytics are also not great

Vendor Response

by Front on July 10, 2018

I am happy that you enjoy Front's snoozing feature, and API abilities.

I am confused to how buggy the app seems to be for you ¿ this is a piece of feedback that we almost never receive. Would you mind sharing with our team the issues that you are experiencing so that we best address them? (support@frontapp.com).

You can definitely use our custom snooze feature, and snooze a message to any date at any time. There are also a variety of set snooze options that you can use (1h, 2h, 4h, next day at various times, 2 days, 4 days, 1 week... or custom).

We are currently working on enhancing our analytics ¿ we would love to hear more from you (support@frontapp.com) on your feedback as a user of this feature; if you don't mind sharing.

Thanks for your feedback.

Pros: It's easy to use, you can integrate various email addresses into one main account. You can assign emails to team members and converse with team members in the same interface as the customer email. It's very easy to manage. Our customer support is very fast and effective because of this!

Cons: At first it took getting used to. There could be a better how-to guide!

Pros: It was very simple and hassle-free to get started with Front and I believe that it is much easier to manage high volume amounts of work email using this platform. I also like that it integrated seamlessly with my current email client and nothing was really made to be difficult or time consuming when deciding to use Front instead of simply Outlook.

Cons: The only con that my team and I came across is that the app defaults to "replying all" with Front. My coworkers have unknowingly sent emails to people that they weren't intended for because of this.

Overall: My team and I were able to collaborate with our emails much more efficiently with this software! Sharing emails seems nearly effortless with this software.

I can't imagine a world without Front!

Comments: I use front every day to manage our shared inboxes (support@, contact@, payments@, reviews@, partnerships@, finance@, press@, jobs@ + our Twitter account) and it's the right tool for us. No message falls through the cracks, we reply to inquiries as fast as they arrive, and everyone knows in the team knows what they have to do. They also have a great analytics dashboard to monitor your team and individual response times.

Pros: Simplicity, flexibility (lots of different workflows are possible), interface is fast, native apps (desktop & iOS), lots of integrations, multi-channel, IMAP support. Customer service is very reactive.

Cons: No knowledge base. No native android app yet.

Pros: It integrates with your Facebook Page It was pleasant to use The customer service team was responsive when I had a problem

Cons: It does not integrated with your Facebook posts for reviews (meaning you still need to go to Facebook or something else to use this) The customer service team wanted to get me on the phone to solve the problem and I didn't make time for that. Would have been better if the problem could have been solved in the background.

Pros: Front has been incredibly easy to use and the functionality to quickly assign people emails that are specifically directed to them or fall under their responsibility is a big time saver. This tool allows for great organization and enables you to archive mails that demand future follow up or additional attention.

Cons: I don't find the interface to be quite as friendly as gmail or outlook for that matter. With that said, the features and functionality are easier to locate and quickly use.

Overall: Streamlines the process of sifting through a large inbox and enables the collaboration of an entire team to accomplish this task.

It's an easy way to handle emails. Efficient, and easy to use in a daily basis.

Comments: I've been using Front for over a year now, on 3 different projects. I've used it to deal with support requests, partnerships enquiry emails, Twitter messages (for an account with more than 75k followers) and more recently for their SMS support to onboard people to an app. Front was essential to all these projects, super easy to set up and use and most importantly perfect to work as a team (without forwarding messages or cc-ing everyone). I love how transparent it is. Big thumbs up as well for the super reactive customer support!

Pros: New features coming out constantly, great customer support, lots of different channels, easy to use as a team, the canned answers option is extremely helpful...

Cons: All the ones I can think of have been fixed these last months.

Lacks "basic" email functionality that would save you time. Instead, using Front adds more time...

Pros: Team Inboxes, rules, snooze feature, etc. are all great features that not many other programs have. But like with everything, the added features are great but they are missing some very important "email management" features that just kill your time.

Cons: If your used to using Gmail, FastMail, ReplyManager, etc. well get ready to "wait" your life away on FrontApp if you attach a lot of files to emails. Other email programs they allow you to "send" email while it uploads the images in the background, not on FrontApp you will wait, wait, wait on images to upload allowing you to click send on emails (terrible flaw IMO). Also, make sure you have a mouse with a scroll up/down wheel as "page up" or "page down" is totally useless in FrontApp within browser or windows app, etc.

Overall: Team functions.

Comments: Front has really changed the way that we do business, in a very good way. With a team of 6 all using the same email and responding to hundreds of emails every day of the week, we've each cut our time on email down by a huge percentage. After a short learning curve, we have all grown to love this application. It allows us to communicate effectively and quickly with our clients without having to update our other team members constantly. We are also constantly impressed with their customer service. They address all of our concerns quickly and have implemented many requests.

Pros: Allows a large team to all use one email address. Easy to use. Customer service is great.

Cons: Every time we mention a "con" Front fixes it, so none left at the moment!
