The Smart Inbox makes it easy to manage messages directed at your social profiles. Occasionally, though, you may want to complete or tag more than one message at a time. Bulk Mode makes it easy to manage multiple messages at once.
Note: You need Tag Messages permissions to bulk tag messages and Manage Message Status permissions to bulk complete messages.

If you want to complete or tag multiple messages:

- Click to tag the selected messages or click to mark the selected messages as complete.

Tip: Marking messages as complete in Bulk Mode immediately marks those messages complete and disables Bulk Mode. If you want to tag those messages, we recommend tagging before marking as complete. Do note that Bulk Mark as Complete is available on all plan levels. Bulk Tagging is available on Professional and Advanced plan levels.
