Never keep a customer waiting by automatically assigning new live chat conversations to available agents with our Round-robin automation.

The round-robin automatically assigns conversations to available agents based on their availability, and distributes conversations evenly amongst available agents, ensuring that the load is fairly distributed.

Settings

To enable Round-robin, navigate to Widget → Live Chat → Chat Routing. There'll you'll find an option Enable round-robin, along with some additional customization options:

  • Don't assign new conversations to agents that are away
    This ensures we only assign new conversations to agents that have their status set to "online" or "offline".
  • Don't assign new conversations to agents that are offline
    This ensures we only assign new conversations to agents that have their status set to "online" or "away".
  • Maximum conversations per agent
    This sets the maximum number of conversations each agent can get assigned automatically. If new conversations when every agent has reached the maximum, the new conversations will remain unassigned. If you've set up the No Agent Online bot you can have it take over at this point.
