What is a Universal Inbox?

A universal inbox is a all-in-one inbox that enables you to access your conversations on all channels from a single place. You can access emails, social media messages, Live chat messages and much more from a single dashboard.

This gives the flexibility to users to answer all incoming conversations directly from one screen instead of toggling between multiple screens.
