A tool to show and export the contents of all the messages in your inbox, along with information such as the sender's User ID and username, date/time posted, and whether you were the one who sent the message. Depending on the options selected, you can also view information such as the sender's Contributor Tier, what type of Contributor they are (e.g., Socialite, Scribe), their specific contributions, and whether they're an admin. You can export to the following formats: Excel, CSV, PDF (as well as copying or printing the results).
To access and use this tool click on the Inbox Display & Export Tool link and then fill in your User ID and API Token. There are two drop-down menus, Column Option and Text Format.
The Column Option drop-down menu allows you to choose what the tool will display for you. For Column Option, you can select from (in order from least to most information) Baby Bear, Mama Bear, and Papa Bear. For example, Baby Bear allows the tool to display the sender's User ID and username, date/time posted, whether you were the one who sent the message, and the contents of the message.
The Text Format drop-down menu allows you to choose how the tool displays the text. The options for Text Format are (in order from most to least formatting) Hot Porridge, Warm Porridge, and Cold Porridge. For example, Warm Porridge displays and exports text formatting with emoji and converted text while HTML is removed.
Most sections contain tables that can be sorted. To sort based on a single column, select its header. If you wish to change from ascending to descending order, select the column header again.To sort based on multiple columns, select the first column header and then hold the Shift key while selecting subsequent column headers. Again, if you wish to change from ascending to descending order for a specific column, select the header again. Selecting a column header a third time removes the sort.
Sorting by Conversation with Specific UserEdit
To view a conversation with a specific user, follow these two steps:
- To sort by user, select the User ID column header. This is preferable to sorting by the User column as players may have renamed themselves.
- Hold down the Shift key while clicking the Posted column header to sort by posted date. (You can select the Posted column header multiple times to change the sort order.)
If you are running a challenge and have asked participants to use a particular emoji or phrase to identify challenge messages, you can further filter your inbox messages by using the Search field above the table to the right. Please note: for emoji, ensure you are using the Cold Porridge Text Format option so that you can see the text in raw format and thus are able to search for the emoji as text.
