Companies look to different types of analytics to determine the performance baseline for different projects, different time periods, and much more. While there are many performance metrics to consider, the insight of email analytics for shared inboxes provides managers with a valuable measure of team performance.
Email is an integral part of almost every business, whether working in-person, with a hybrid format, or fully remote. For companies working with shared inboxes—like @sales, or @info—the ability to track the paths of different emails can provide useful information to streamline the daily workflow.
This tracking information, known as email analytics, can show the traffic flow for each individual email as well as entire shared inboxes. This article will describe some of the most useful analytics and the corresponding best practices and features for managing shared inboxes.
