About the Chat trigger:
When a customer requests a chat, this Chat trigger will instantly send the customer your message. Instantly let your customer know you appreciate that they chatted in and an agent will be with them shortly. Optionally, you can include a condition that makes this Chat trigger only run if your queue size is greater than a certain amount. In the example below, the auto-reply will only send to new customers if there are more than 12 customers waiting in the chat queue.
Tip: Consider pairing this Chat trigger with the Chat trigger described in this article: Chat trigger recipe: Send messages to your customers waiting in the queue.

Does this work for Messaging?
Unfortunately, this trigger only applies to chat for now. For Messaging, you can map your responses using the Flow Builder. More information can be found here: Using Flow Builder to create bot flows
Thanks, we're using flow builder. Unless I've missed it, I don't see an option to send a message to the end user based on queue size in the flow builder?
Unfortunately, it is not possible to add an option to send a message to a user based on the queue size in the flow builder for now. Don't worry because our team is looking into this and hopefully, it can be added soon.
Was this ever added? We really need a warning message for users if all our agents are busy. Flowbuilder will just make the user wait forever.
We truly value customer feedback and your voice and votes in the forums help influence future Zendesk functionality. I appreciate your understanding of this limitation.
