Setting up personal rules for automation

'Rules' let you automate actions that you might perform repeatedly. Define the workflow, automate it and you're all set.

Every rule consists of three parts.
  1. Trigger - Defines what should initiate the rule.
  2. Conditions - Defines the criteria that should be met for the rule to take actions.
  3. Action - Defines the actions that are to be performed when the condition is met.
Let's assume a scenario to understand 'Rules' better. Let's say you want to archive every incoming email that you are CCed or BCCed. Then, your rule should be as follows.

Trigger - Inbound message
The rule will trigger every time a new message is received in your personal inbox.

Conditions - Select 'Match Any' radio button; click 'CC' from the dropdown box; select 'contains'; 'enter your name'.
Click '+ Add OR Conditions'.
Select 'Match Any' radio button; click 'BCC' from the dropdown box; select 'contains'; 'enter your name'.
The rule will now check if the message received has your name on CC or BCC..

Action - Archive
When the above condition is met, the message will be archived.

Steps to create a personal rule

  1. Login to Zoho TeamInbox.
  2. Click the Settings icon in the top right corner.
  3. Click More Settings.
  4. Click Rules under the Personal tab.
  5. Click Add Rules.

    2. Outbound message - when a new message is sent out; This message cannot be a reply in an existing thread.  
    3. Outbound reply - when a reply is sent in an existing thread.  
    4. Comment - when a new comment is made on any thread.
      You can select more than one trigger.
  8. Define the Condition that is to be met for the rule to perform actions. You can add any number of conditions. Following are the conditions you can choose from:
    1. Inbox is - the thread should belong to the inbox you select. 
    2. From - the thread will be filtered based on the sender of the message.

    10. Received on day - the thread will be filtered based on the day the message is received.
    11. Received on date (range) - the thread will be filtered based on the time period the message is received.

    If you've selected Comment as the trigger, then the following are the conditions you can set:

    Comment text - the thread will be filtered based on the content of the comment.

    Received on day - the thread will be filtered based on the day the comment is made.
    Received on date (range) - the thread will be filtered based on the time period the comment is made.  

  9. Select the actions to be performed when the above mentioned conditions are met. Following are the actions you can choose from: 
    1. Archive - the thread will be archived.
    2. Trash - the thread will be moved to trash.  
    3. Unarchive - the thread will be unarchived.    
    4. Apply tag - the tag you select will be applied to the thread.  
    5. Remove tag - the tag you select will be removed from the thread. 
      You can add any number of actions as needed.

Once you create, the rule is active. You can stop the rule anytime by clicking Disable next to it. The rules you create under your personal space are private to you with no access to your teammates.
