Tips for support teams when responding to feature requests

When a customer submits a request through your support team, they can add that request to Receptive, tag the customer to it, and let the customer know that they'll be updated on their request.

However, instead of generic and vague responses like your competitors are sending:

“The only thing I can do is pass it along, and put this in as a feature request. Unfortunately I can not make you any promises if this will be implemented.”

“We have received your idea and we will review it soon.”

Your team, as a Receptive user, has a huge opportunity to stand out.

Here are some tips and templates that will make a huge difference: 

Download the Gorgias chrome plugin here

The Gorgias extention allows you to type a "shortcut" word and it will automatically populate the templated response you'd like to send. 

For example, you can set it up so when you type the word "request" and hit "tab", it populates the following text:

Thank you so much for your feedback! I’ve submitted this as a feature request in our Receptive dashboard, and you'll be automatically updated when your request is reviewed within xx days.

You can reach your dashboard, see your request, vote on features others have submitted, and prioritize your requests by clicking the "Request a feature" button in our app [add link location details].

Also, feel free to add additional details in the discussion section so our product team knows how this feature would help you.

Be specific

Vague responses to feature requests and ideas make customers feel like you don't value their feedback. Show them that you take their requests seriously by having a solid process in place with Receptive to listen, respond, and act on their ideas.

Save time by pointing them to Receptive

Once your customers know about Receptive (also see engagement emails) they'll submit fewer support tickets with feature requests and submit it themselves into Receptive. In your Gorgias shortcut (or however your reply to requests), make sure you explain the benefits of Receptive and how they can access it themselves.

Tip: send your customers our end-user guide to Receptive.
