The following messages can be found in the Actionable tab:

  • Drafts will appear at the top of list in italics

  • A blue dot Screen_Shot_2021-06-30_at_10.59.32_AM.png  indicates a new unread message

  • yellow dot Screen_Shot_2021-06-30_at_10.57.38_AM.png indicates a message has been opened by your office, but has not yet been responded to
  • A red dot Screen_Shot_2021-06-30_at_11.00.30_AM.png indicates a message that was undeliverable

Messages can be removed from and returned to the Actionable tab.
