    Thanks for your feedback. This is a know limitation we have put in place in V2 since a ticket is assigned to a conversation.

    How often you get into this situation ? do you notice lot of your chats reporting multiple issues which need to tracked on separate tickets ?

    In V1, many customer had issues with chats creating multiple or duplicate tickets per chat which is why V2 binds a chat with a single ticket. This also works well when a chat get transferred to another agent or even if it gets reassigned due to auto chat routing.

    We would consider allowing multiple ticket per chat using manual ticket creation button in future. Right now it is not on the immediate roadmap.

    Thanks Harish. This is a key use case for us. We're using chat for internal support through someone's shift, so it's not uncommon for them to chat us multiple times for completely different issues.

    Zopim chat channel does not close even if an agent ends a chat from his end, it is is left open for the visitor to send the message.  A chat really ends when visitor leaves your website or ends the chat proactively or is idle for 20 min.

    What is your team's common chat workflow ? does your team ends a chat proactively when they answer a question or resolve an issue? And hence you have multiple agents joining a same chat? or your website tends to have customers lingering for hours on a webpage ?

    Hi Harish,

    Thanks. We can use that workaround for now, but would love to be able to "force" end the chat from our side or create a quicker timeout.

    Totally agree ! We need the button to close the chat  from our side.

    Harish,

    We proactively end our chat sessions with customers and then go to Zendesk to solve the ticket.  We need a new ticket created for each chat request instead of appending the existing solved ticket from that user.

    This is an issue too because agents are graded on productivity, so when a customer repeatedly asks different questions in the same window even after an agent closes, it gets routed to a second agent who then is not given credit for the time spent with that customer.  Any work around?

    How can issues like these remain open for over 3 years with apparently no action being taken by zendesk? Anyway, why not give licensed users the choice of how they prefer to handle chats that have been closed, instead of locking the system? This is all a bit frustrating to be honest.

    Hi William -

    We keep product feedback conversations open for users to continue to up-vote or add their comments to so long as the conversation remains active and it is something we have not determined that we would absolutely never do.

    However, we receive thousands more feedback requests every year than we can act on. As a result, there are sometimes threads that stay active for long periods of time but never make it to the top of the priority list for a variety of reasons.
