Chat notification filter
If more departments were created (sales, technical, ...) it would be very useful to be able to decide which department the chat notifications arrive at without using any pre-chat form. For example, I might decide that notifications only go to members of the sales department, who can then turn the chat into a ticket and send it to the technical department.
Thank you for choosing tawk.to and for reaching out.
Currently, we cannot assign chats to a specific agent or assistant. All incoming chats can be viewed and answered by all agents logged in to the property.
Departments allow you to make sure the right agents answer visitors. They also allow you to assign a ticket to a particular department, ensuring everyone in that department receives the email/notification.
Here is how the department function works:
1. Chats can be assigned to departments. All agents, including those not assigned to a department, can see all incoming chats. However, only those assigned to the selected department will receive a notification. This makes it easy to transfer chats..
2. Once a chat is assigned to a department, agents will only hear chat notifications when there are no agents online in the selected department. This prevents chats from going unanswered.
4. Currently, there is no option to hide chats from departments or property members outside of a selected department.
