How To Monitor Keywords In App Reviews

Appbot makes it easy to monitor keywords in app reviews.

A lot of our customers find it useful to keep track of a particular group (or groups) of keywords and phrases that are unique to their apps. The keywords or phrases they usually like to keep track of are things like the unique names of their features or services, among other things.

At Appbot, we provide these customers with a quick and simple way to setup a Custom Topic, which automatically groups all the reviews, past and present that contain any or all of the particular set of keywords and phrases that it’s been configured to look for.

Once setup, these Custom Topics can easy be configured to monitor keywords and send new reviews that meet the topics conditions to any of the services Appbot integrates with. (You can even choose which star rating reviews get sent through!)

Appbot can send your new reviews to Salesforce, Zendesk, Trello, Slack, Yammer,, Microsoft Teams, HipChat and Freshdesk. Click here to learn more about Appbot’s Integrations.
