Messaging Web Widget: allow custom fields to be skipped in Agent Transfer if the field is optional in Support
In Messaging, we'd really like to collect order numbers from customers who have that handy, but we don't want that data collection to be a roadblock between Requesters reaching our agents (or worse, for customers to enter random numbers in just to get past the form).
Currently, even if you have a custom field "Required to submit a request" unchecked in Support, on the Messaging "Transfer to Agent" step, that field is still treated as Required to proceed to the next step:
Ideally, fields in Messaging should honor the required vs not required settings applied to that field in Support > Tickets > Fields and give customers an option to skip a custom field if it's optional.
Thank you for sharing your feedback. We will take this feedback into consideration for future product iterations.

This is currently a roadblock for my customers using Messaging. This really needs to be fixed urgently.
Also, all aspects of the messaging widget and bot end user experience (what the customer sees) should honour Language and Dynamic Content :)
