Manage departments

As a Supervisor, you can set up departments (e.g., Sales, Technical, Billing) and group your agents accordingly. When engaging with a customer, agents can transfer the chat to a specific department or agent within a department based on the expertise the customer requires.

  1. Click Add new department.

Under Chat Desk Preferences you can set the departments that should serve as the first line of contact. All incoming chats will be routed there first.
