Google Document Viewer

Google document viewer is a safer way for your agents to view files attached to tickets or chats.

This function routes the tickets based on how long the ticket has been unanswered and based on the created SLA levels applied to the tickets. This way, the tickets from the customers that have been waiting for the answer from your support team the longest or the customers with an urgent issue, if defined by the SLA level, will be prior...

Chat/Call queue indicator

In order to define the number of chats that agents can handle at the same time, navigate to Configuration --> Agents --> Edit any agent --> Settings (tab) --> Max chat ...

Besides pausing yourself, administrators are also able to pause or logout their colleagues who might have forgotten to pause themselves. - How to p...

Auto pause

Whether going on a break or leaving the office for the day, sometimes agents (https://www.liveagent.com/features/agents/) can forget to click 'pause (https://support.liveagent.com/350128-Pause-feature)' in their agent panel or close the panel completely when leaving the computer. Since the system still counts them as active and includes them in the routing, this can lead to frequent "no answer" events, such as missed chats or calls. Live Agent brings a great solution to these accidents with its...
