How to: Reduce clutter by marking messages as read & de-cluttering sidebar

In this series of “How to” help articles, we’ll tell you how to reduce clutter by marking messages as read and de-clutter sidebar.

Remove clutter, mark stuff as read

Inbox is your entire activity stream (messages, tasks etc. from 1-on-1 conversations, teams & discussions) and you only see whatever is unread. Once you read up all unread activity, you click Mark as read at the bottom to clear the clutter.

You can always go back and read up all messages in the inbox by changing views for the Inbox.



Cluttered left sidebar causing panic?

We know how things can get so busy in Zapty, especially when you are part of many teams, discussions and even one-on-one conversations. It all starts building on the left pane and suddenly there is a long scroll to see everything on the left.

Don’t worry, we’ll show you how to clear it all easily. To get it back, go to the team/discussion/people list and click on the conversation you want to show in the left bar and it will start showing there again.

Watch the animated image below to see how to remove unwanted items from the left pane.


Hope this blog has been helpful.

Happy Zapty-ing!
