Setting up live chat in Zendesk Support (standard agent interface)

    Parts of this article appear to be outdated. For example, the following needs to be done via the Admin center as far as I can tell:

    To turn chat permissions on or off for an agent

    Open the user's profile.
    Toggle the Zendesk Chat field to On or Off.

    Also, why do I (as one of the managers) need to use up a chat license just to manage the chat side of things? Please consider adding an "admin only" role that allows a manager to, well, manage chat agents and chat settings without using an actual chat license for that role.

    Hello @...

    Thank you so much! You are absolutely correct. I've sent this off for updates and we should get that fixed pretty quickly.

    Thank you for the heads up!
