    CSAT collection not being possible is a major factor for us as an organisation, but we would really like to make use of these new features due to the increasing volume of live chat's we're recieving. Do you have an estimate on what CSAT collection will be possible using Zendesk Messaging?

    Hi Oscar, 

    We completely understand your perspective and agree that CSAT is an important feature. We are currently working on to enable CSAT for Zendesk messaging and it should be available soon. 

    Regards,

    Ayush

    Hi Ayush, thanks for that. Is it possible to be alerted when CSAT is launched on Zendesk Messaging? Do you know if we're talking weeks or months or? We're keen to start using Messaging ASAP. Thanks :)

    Sure Oscar, I will reply on this thread when we launch (or about to launch) CSAT for Messaging.

    What about conversations API?

    When this is turned on, what happens when messages are sent outside of business hours? We utilize schedules, and I tried testing this feature off-peak hours as suggested, and a chat was served even though we were closed. I assumed it was because I hadn't set up anything but I am curious to know if it will provide the same options as AB when offline, aka "leave a message".

    I'm going to echo Keela's concern regarding receiving messages outside of business hours.  I had the same scenario occur during the Thanksgiving break.

    good day, i need to say this is not a good  update

    First, my shortcuts all gone, and i cannot view incoming chat's content before click "conversation" to serve customer.

    also, some message are missing, how can i find out the setting to see location of customer. if i don't click conversation to serve a customer, i cannot see how long this customer wait?

     

    Original page is clear to see all the information, and now i cannot find an option to go back to old version, quite a sad story for me.....

    Apologies for the late response. 

    Keela Ross, Dave Rothe


    Messaging , unlike Chat, enables your customers to reach out to your business, even when agents are offline. These messages create tickets which can be found under Unassigned Tickets View. Messaging specific View can be created with Channel is Messaging. Your admins can triage these tickets to the agents. Agents will be able to respond to your customers. Your customers will see the agent's response when they revisit your website. 

    You can setup auto-responders to set expectations on response time / business hours using Chat Triggers with condition : Account status is Offline.

    Enabling messaging does not impact shortcuts. Is this still an issue ? 

    'Conversation' is used to notify the agents whenever there is new messaging ticket waiting in their queue. Can tell me more about how the content of conversation is useful for picking up conversations in the queue? 

    Messaging can be disabled from Admin Centre > Channels. More information can be found here

    Hi,
    Chat conversations API will continue to work for messaging in agent workspace. Few callouts
    a) A chatbot built using CCAPIs will not be invoked automatically once you enable messaging experience for a brand. 

    b) CCAPIs for non-chatbot use cases will continue to function and we are not filtering messaging conversation from CCAPIs.

    If you still see a need for invoking CCAPI based bot, you can run a support trigger and assign the conversation to CCAPI based bot though this is not a recommendation from Zendesk side because a visitor will see Answer bot interaction followed by CCAPI based bot. Correct workaround for this would be building chat bot using sunshine conversation APIs.

    I understand that there's no buttons for CSAT in the Messaging web widget, but is it possible to collect this via an email trigger? i.e. in the same way we would to collect CSAT from an email ticket please?

    I am running into an issue where the broadcast notification is going to ALL chat agents online and NOT just the agents that are for that specific Brand where the chat is being initiated. How can I limit what agents get the notifications since we don't have agents working across multiple brands?

    So is it not possible in Zendesk Workspace suite to route certain skills for specific agents? As chat routing is disabled for messaging? What are our alternatives?

    Hi Maurice, 

    Routing to a specific group of agents based on the type of customer, nature of issue etc is supported for Messaging.

    You can follow the steps outlined in this section of the article.  Skills-based routing is not supported at the moment. It is on our roadmap. 

    I am also curious to hear how do you group your agents and how would you like to route messaging conversations.

    Does the trigger for incoming Zendesk chats actually work?!
    The conditions are any incoming chats are on the Answer Bot Channel OR Zendesk Brand.
    Surely this isn't correct.
    Kind regards,
    James

    Hi James,

    The trigger serves as a workaround to assign any chat ticket to the chat bot. In the condition statement, just set  Brand | Is | [name of your brand]  so that the trigger will run on tickets under the brand where Messaging is enabled.

    Thanks!

    • No more than 6,000 concurrent visitors with 300,000 total visitors per day
      Is this directly on the help center, or does this visitor limit apply to anywhere the widget is embedded? 
      Is it on the roadmap to increase these traffic limits?

    Will Skills Based Routing be supported for Messaging in the future? 

    Is there any update on when CSAT for messaging will be available? 9 months ago it was going to be "soon". 

    Is there any update on when attachments from end users will be available? It was mentioned it would be "Sometime in the middle of the year" five months ago.

    CJ Johnson:

    CSAT ratings are available for messaging. See About CSAT ratings in Zendesk messaging.

    Skills-based routing and attachments are still being worked on. I don't have an ETA for either feature, but maybe someone else can chime in on that?

    Messaging tickets conversations created when agents are offline are sent to the Unassigned tickets view or the agent’s Group view.

    There's no such thing as "the agent's Group view", and tickets cannot be "sent" to a view. A ticket can have fields set to make it appear in a view or set of views, but to say "tickets are sent to specific views" is explicitly not how the product works or how views work. Tickets are not sent -- They either show in a view because they meet the conditions, or they do not, and they can appear in many views simultaneously. To say they are sent implies that they would not show up in other views or be available to other agents in other groups, and that's just not at all true or how the system works at all. 
      Is the expectation that everyone uses views where the group is the main controlling factor in what tickets show?
    This isn't remotely how the vast majority of our views are set up, and I think we'd have to rework literally every view to prevent in-progress Messages from just popping up all over the place.

    Hello!

    Should Chat Conversations API subscription to incoming messages still work when using Zendesk Messaging? Like when a visitor transfers a conversation to an agent or writes a new message.

    Thanks!
