    Hi, yes we do have plans as part of our next 9 months roadmap to launch Public APIs that will allow getting and updating unified agent statuses across Talk, Support, Messaging channels.

    Are there any plans to include an API endpoint to check for how many agents are in a given status? 
    This would help a lot as the ZenDesk Chat endpoint seems to have been depreciated when Messaging is enabled and used..

    Hello Volkan,

    Thanks for your answer. An API would help a lot in combination with the messanging Widget, in order to only display it when agents are online.

    Another question: Does the status apply to routing in general, or only routing via triggers or the routing EAP.


    E.g. could an agent that is in a meeting still manually get a Ticket assigned from an admin?

    Hi Shayan Moussawi

    The routing references the routing EAP capabilities.

    So yes, an agent can still be manually assigned tickets regardless of their status.
