Answer an Incoming Message

Answer an Incoming Message

Your incoming notifications appear in a black rectangle. You can move notifications around your screen by dragging them. You can also minimise them into Waiting activities using the arrow in the bottom left corner.

The notification displays:

  • the customer's details. Click their name or company to open their CRM details.

  • the name of the Queue and the amount of Time the customer has been in the queue.

  • the amount of time since you received the notification.

Accept or Reject the message by clicking one of the corresponding buttons. You may see a white button next to the reject button. This opens a URL defined by your administrator.

You may have limited time to answer the message. If you take longer, you may automatically be put on an unpaid pause.

Notice the Waiting activity badge?

You may be able to answer web chats even if you don't receive a black notification (e.g. because you are logged out of a queue or because the call is being routed to one of your colleagues).

Click the Waiting activities button above the main menu.

Click Accept to answer the chat.
