Below you will find 2 ways to rename a shared inbox.
If you apply the second method, it will allow you to change the name of a shared inbox at once for all members of a shared inbox, but all the previous emails that were part of the shared inbox will be unassigned with the Open status.
1) Change the name of a shared inbox in Gmail settings (for yourself only)
- In Gmail settings, head to the Labels section
- On the right side of your shared inbox label click on "Edit"
- Rename the shared inbox as per your preference
Once the name is changed, in your Gmelius dashboard, if you click on the shared inbox you will see next to your email address the new name you appointed to the shared inbox. For the other users, the name of the shared inbox will remain as is. This way users are free to rename the shared inbox to match their preferences.
2) Change the name of a shared inbox by recreating it (rename at once for all its members)
Let's imagine you have a shared inbox for the email@example.com email address called the same way - "firstname.lastname@example.org", and you wish to rename it to "General Mailbox".
- First, you need to delete the existing shared inbox(In our example it's "email@example.com"). Head to your dashboard and under Actions, click on
- Create a new shared inbox for your email address (in our example, it's firstname.lastname@example.org), edit the name the way you want (in our example, it's "General Mailbox"), and add users.
- When you delete a shared inbox it becomes a regular Gmail label (no longer shared). So if you have email conversations that were already shared in the deleted shared inbox (in our example, it's "email@example.com"), you need to apply the label of the new shared inbox (in our example it's "General Mailbox") to email conversations that are part of that Gmail label (in our example, it's "firstname.lastname@example.org").
You will find all those email conversations will be in the Unassigned folder of the new shared inbox.
