Tags in Slack

Insent allows you to tag visitors from Slack and segment them into groups. Your agents can assign pre-defined tags to your visitors or create and use new tags from Slack.

Tags will help different teams in your organization to identify and filter visitors based on their needs.

If your organization prefers working out of the Insent Dashboard, refer to this article to understand how an agent can assign tags to a visitor in Inbox.

You can also automatically assign tags to visitors based on conversation steps that they encounter. Learn more about automatically tagging your site visitors here.

Create a visitor tag in Slack

Insent allows agents to create tags from Slack from the ‘More Options’ button under the ‘Profile Information’ section.

Update advanced info of lead

You can create or update lead information from the ‘Create lead’ and ‘Update Advanced info of lead’ options.

You can create tags for your visitors from the ‘Update Advanced info of lead’ option. Once the ‘Update Advance info of lead’ button is selected, a popup with a list of available lead fields that can be updated is shown. The ‘Update Advance info of lead’ option allows you to update personal information such as:

  1. Region: The geographic area of the visitor
  2. City: The city of residence of the visitor
  3. Country: The country of residence of the visitor
  4. Job Title: The current role of the visitor in the company


You can remove a tag from a visitor profile whenever you like. You cannot delete or edit tags once you create them.

Below the lead info fields that can be updated, you can see all the tags that have been assigned to visitors from a conversation flow, Inbox, Slack, or MS. 

Locating tags in Advanced lead info (Slack)

Tags can be created from the Tags dropdown list → ‘Create new tags’ option. Selecting the ‘Create new tags’ option will open a popup where you can create a tag of your choice.
