I am seeing a lot of missed chats because I don't have enough agents to answer them. What can I do?
There are some best practices you can implement to help lower the number of missed chats:
- Staff up for peak time periods when missed chats are at the highest.
- Allow Hybrid Assignment Mode for agents to take more than their concurrent limit. For more information, see the article: Configuring Hybrid Assignment Mode (live chat and messaging).
- Consider using the Chat in Web Widget (Classic) to increase deflection rates.
- Make sure the pre-built Chat rescuer trigger is active in your account. The trigger won't prevent missed chats but will inform the customers that they can wait until an agent can respond.
