Conversation default assigned rules


By default, incoming conversations are left unassigned in the inbox. With the Default assignee setup, you can set assigned rules so that incoming conversations are automatically assigned to specific agents by following these steps:


1. Go to Settings > Members > Collaboration


2. In Default assignee field, there are three options for you to choose from:


  • No one: New conversations will not be assigned to anyone. Agents have to take each of their conversations manually.
  • Random online agent: New conversations will be assigned to any of the online agents randomly.
  • Default for each channel: New conversations will be assigned to one specific agent of each channel. You can change the assigned agent by clicking on the dropdown icon (it could be a human agent or a bot agent).



Auto-assign when agents reply to a message


Chative allows you to automatically assign the agent to the conversation right at the moment you reply to customers, so you don't need to manually assign yourself into conversation anymore. 

You can enable this option by following these steps:


1. Go to SettingMembers > Collaboration

2. Enable the option Auto-assign conversation when agent reply a message


Note: You can change the assigned agent manually to yourself in the conversation's assigned section or turn on the option Auto-assign the conversation when the agent replies to a message.
