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: Searchability of emails. And good integrity with other common tools including Slack, Trello and Asana

Cons: This is just a feature request rather than a complaint, but I can have all the conversations in an email opened by default instead of the collapsed view? This may save few hundreds of clicks per week.

Overall: Without this email, I won't be able to handle my emails at the workplace. Oh, I forgot to mention that the "Undo send" feature saved my life few times.

Pros: I like front's UI and how we can change themes. Also, the private and team tags is basic for our wupport team to have an easier way to track specific tickets.

Cons: I would love to have more fonts added, the ability to add larger files to our emails and more characters for the FB inbox.

Pros: I love the fact that you can respond to your chat directly from your inbox. It makes it so simple and effortless to respond quickly, and bring value to those who are interacting with you.

Cons: I wish that there was a little more customization/personalization potential, but honestly there are so many positives that it is a drop in the bucket!

Pros: Front has a very strong brand design and it is simple and easy to work their software. My team has found it more useful for project management rather than just email. We are able to create tickets, follow-up on projects, answer to people's emails, etc.

Cons: I wish I was able to customize this more. I would like to be able to make appointments or create meetings with this software, but there is no calendar capability. Also wish I could make folders like in outlook to categorize and prioritize.

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 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.

One of the worst email applications I've ever used

Apr 02, 2018

Overall

Ease of Use
1 / 5
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.

Pros: I like Front as it is much better than using email for working on projects. It also works really well as a ticket replacement (for customer issues). You can consolidate messages from several sources and then use them as tasks to assign to people. There are lots of additional features. My favorite is the analytics as it offers interesting insights about response times.

Cons: No real complaints. The sign up is a bit annoying because you have to enter a pin to verify your email, but it¿s not a big issue.

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: 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.

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.

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: 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.

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: 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.

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: 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: Front lets your team communicate with customers without a help desk. The customer doesn't have to deal with threads and tickets. It is just like writing a mail to a friend. I don't if there is another app like this out there.

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.

Comments: We have been looking for a solution like this for quite some time. Our small but nimble team was always bouncing emails and SMS messages around in an attempt to stay in sync. FRONT helps us keep our emails more focused, properly assigned, and quickly responded to by the relevant parties. Somehow it feels like we are getting more work done with less emails and that is a great feeling.

I <3 Front!

Comments: We've been using Front for over a year. They make it easy to reply to emails, tweets, and Facebook messages as a team. You can comment on emails, assign them to members of your team, and set up rules to automate your workflow. It helps us communicate effectively and quickly without having to constantly update other team members, and it keeps messages from falling through the cracks. I don't know how we lived without it!

The Front team is also really friendly and constantly innovating and implementing improvements.

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

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.

Comments: We switched to Front after using many different tools for support over the past years. We're running support for our mobile app with an install base of 1M+ with a tiny team. Front's UX is great and allows us to give very personal support to our users. Most of all I like how Front gets better every day. They're iterating quickly and listen to their users, practice what you preach.

Pros: Speed, mobile client, Gmail integration, canned responses with variables, lightweight.

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.

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!

Comments: We use Front to stay on top of support and customer relation emails and social media engagement. It prevents us from letting messages go unanswered, we assign emails to make it obvious who is responsible for what, and being able to tag and comment lets us effortlessly triage requests. Front has probably cut down the time we spend dealing with emails by 50-60%, and it's a must-have for any company or team dealing with shared accounts.

Pros: The integrations are great (especially for staying on top of Twitter!), there's a solid iOS app, the support staff are incredibly responsive, and generally Front is just wonderfully easy to use and understand.

Cons: None right now! Whenever I have gripes they're resolved so quickly I can hardly keep up :)

Comments: This software helps a tons for use cases where you need to push information related to customer interactions to other people on your team (where BCCs fall short, and tickets get clunkly- for example, for product teams doesn't make sense to chat with a customer over tickets). Fast and lightweight.

Pros: Easy to install, Fast, Desktop App, Lots of Integrations, Little Training Required

Cons: Like any early company, it's a work in progress but they're very responsive to feature requests.

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.

The Best Inbox Management Software there is, period.
