Automating tasks within support workflows is crucial for efficiency. AppFollow offers powerful automation features: Auto-tags and Auto-replies. By utilizing these tools, support teams can save time and ensure timely responses to customer reviews.


Manual tagging of reviews can be time-consuming. With Auto-tags, you can automate this process based on predefined conditions. Here's how to set it up

  • Access Auto-tags: Go to the Automation hub section and click on "+Add a new rule".
  • Define Conditions: Choose conditions that will trigger tag assignment.
  • Select Tag: Choose the tag to be assigned when conditions are met.
  • Save Rule: Save the rule, and it will be automatically applied to new and relevant reviews.

These Auto-tag rules run every 5 minutes, ensuring reviews are promptly tagged. Additionally, if you have a Zendesk App integration, applied Auto-tags are sent to Zendesk tickets.

  • Prepare Reply Templates: Create a set of Reply Templates for Auto-replies.
  • Access Auto-replies: Go to the Automation hub section and click on "+Add a new rule".
  • Define Conditions: Specify conditions that must be met for the rule to apply.

  • Set Priority and Publication Mode: Prioritize the rule and choose between Approval or Auto-posting modes.
  • Save Rule: Save the rule to apply it to relevant reviews.

Auto-replies run every 10 minutes, ensuring timely responses. Users with roles like Admin, User, or Support Manager can create Auto-reply rules. How to change Roles?
