What is Keeping?

Learn how Keeping works and how you can use it to assign, track, and prioritize customer support email right inside your Gmail inbox.

Keeping is a customer support tool that works on top of Gmail. After you install Keeping's Chrome Extension or Safari Extension, you can assign, track, and prioritize customer support email right inside your Gmail inbox.

Keeping is built for teams that do more than just customer support. It comes with everything you need to get a handle on your shared inbox without all the clutter and confusion of a tool like Zendesk.

Our mission is to make customer support fast and simple, right inside Gmail. Because who wants another inbox to manage?

Good to know: Keeping requires that you have a Google Workspace, Gmail, or GSuite account and our Gmail integration works exclusively with Safari or Chrome browsers.

How Keeping Works

When you connect a shared mailbox to Keeping, every message sent by your customers is sync'ed to the work or personal Gmail of your team members. And when a team member replies, that message is sent via your shared inbox back to your customer and it is also sync'ed with the entire team. This keeps everyone in the loop without messy cc:s or forwarding around email.

Of course, every Keeping ticket can be assigned, prioritized, or discussed right inside Gmail. All of Keeping's features are meant to be powerful & simple so you can stay on top of your shared mailbox.
