Manage Your Podium Inbox

3. To map RSAs (retail sales associates) from kiosk to Podium, you can create multiple users in your Podium account. Select the Settings icon from the top navigation bar.

4. Select Users from the side menu.


5. If the Sales Associate field from the form on the kiosk app matches a User in your Podium account, conversations will automatically be added to their personal inbox.
