If you have a use case which requires you to distribute the new chats to agents via queue this is for you.

You can define the rules of each queue and how it will be distributed through the agents.

Below are the steps on how to enable the chat session and setup your queue.

Step1: – Go to “Value Text Setup” >>> Enable “Omni Channel Message Routing” >>> Enable the below check box and click “Update”.

Step2:- Go to the Sender IDs tab >>> Edit your Sender ID

There you can enable the default queue for your Omni Channel (OR) you can configure specific queue for a specific object as shown below.

Click “Edit” and configure it as per your requirements.

You can do the same configuration as the image below.

Step3:- Go to “Omni-Channel Settings” and enable the check box shown on the image below and click “Save”.

Step 4: Create a “Service Channel” for the required objects and click “New”, refer to the image below. 

Name the Service Channel and select the object’s name (Chat Session) and click “Save”, as shown below.

Whenever a new chat session comes in it will be assigned to an available user. When the user accepts the NEW CHAT a mini chat console will be opened so the agent can communicate with the customer.

To open the Mini-Chat console refer to the image below.
