An admin/agent can see other ongoing chats under 'Other active chats' section.
Click on any of the chats from the “Other active chats” section to start monitoring the chat conversation. Multiple chats can be monitored at a time.
The monitored chat window and active chat windows can be differentiated by the colour of the window and the chat reply area. Admin/agent cannot reply to the chat that is being monitored by them.
You can hide the monitored chats by closing the cross icon on the chat window. Or collapse the other active chats section by clicking on the downward arrow icon.
Actions like adding tags, requesting visitor info, creating lead/contact etc., during chat will also be displayed in the monitored chat window.
If the monitored chat is transferred to the monitoring admin/agent?
The chat will become the admin/agent’s active chat and will not be listed under the “Other active chats” section.
