Have you ever wondered if a recipient is interested in your email? If you have, Mixmax Smart Notifications can help. Smart Notifications use the power of Mixmax Rules to notify you when your recipient has opened a message three times. This lets you reach back out to those recipients knowing they're interested in your message.
You can setup smart notifications to notify you by adding a message to your email thread, by sending a message to a designated Slack channel through our Slack integration, or both.
Email smart notifications are available for users on Mixmax Starter plan and above. Slack Smart notifications are available on the Mixmax Growth and Enterprise plans.
Enabling Smart Notifications
You can enable smart notifications for individual messages while composing in Gmail. To do so, click the lightning bolt 'Tracking' menu while composing. You'll see this menu:
Then, check the box next to 'Smart email notifications' or 'Smart Slack notifications' to indicate which kind(s) of notifications you'd like to receive.
If you'd like to enable smart notifications by default, or to change the Slack channel used for smart notifications, you can do so on the tracking settings page of the Mixmax Dashboard:
You can check the box next to 'Smart email notifications' or 'Smart Slack notifications' to turn these on for all messages. You can use the 'Select default Slack notifications channel' dropdown to select which Slack channel your smart Slack notifications will be sent to. By default, notifications will be sent to the 'slackbot' direct message channel.
Smart notifications will be sent when your recipient opens a message for the third time. Smart notifications will not be sent for any domains or recipients you have excluded from the live feed, to prevent you from getting notifications from your internal recipients.
Turning off smart notifications by default will change the setting for future messages, but will not affect messages that have already been sent.
