Hey everyone! I’m the CEO and co-founder of Front. We’ve spent the last 6 months rebuilding Front from the ground up, and I’m thrilled to finally share it with you! Our biggest investment was completely rewriting the app in React for faster performance, a more modern design, and a strong foundation for new features in the future. We also rebuilt the core workflows of Front to make collaborating on shared conversations simpler — emails, SMS texts, social media messages, and more. Now, every user has their own personal workspace for handling Front messages, a clear view into who’s involved in each conversation, and a natively integrated calendar for staying on top of meetings and calls. We’ve also expanded Front’s rules engine to enable more powerful workflows using AND/OR conditions and rules sequences that are easier to maintain when processes change. Can’t wait to hear what you think! Let me know if you have any questions 🙂
@collinmathilde congrats... Love the modern look and feel, rules and calendar integration.
@bretthellman thanks 😊glad you like it!
@collinmathilde congrats to you and your team, this is really impressive. I particularly love your philosophy of transparency that you discussed at SUS this year. For anyone who hasn't seen it yet, I suggest watching Mathilde's interview:
@rueter thanks 🙂let me know if you have any questions about it!
I’ve really been enjoying the new Front. UX makes collaborating on tickets easier, and the UI’s beautiful. A great update to an already excellent product. 💪
@jakeapeters so great to hear! 🙂

Everybody know how to use email software : your team will master it in minutes.

But the collaborative aspect of Front will change the game !

Pros:

Perfectly tuned for the real users. The first support software that my team loves.

Cons:

Only in english

So many cool new features in this version! Congrats on launching @collinmathilde and the Front team 👏 The kind of tools I want to use even if I don't need it yet :) Having everything in one place means fewer tools so less context switching, helping focus and Deep Work 👍 More and more companies are now switching to React with lots of benefits (I was talking with one this afternoon) Good to see Front do the same
@mrcalexandre we're really happy with the decision to switch to React! a big effort for our team but we think it's the right move for our long term foundation.
