Instant messaging

The following operations are possible in IM interactions:

  • send & receive messages.
    You are able to send (spell-checking is available) and receive IM messages when in a conversation with another party.

  • send & receive typing notifications.
    When you start writing a message, a typing notification is sent to the remote party and vice-versa.

When in a multi-session, the Agent will receive alerts whenever a client writes a chat message. The alert of the new message will be delivered in three formats:

  • Browser tab warning - the browser tab will display the "*" symbol to alert the Agent about the unread message. 
  • Session tab warning - every time there is an unread message the session tab name blinks.
