Omnichannel Agents are responsible for handling Omnichannel conversations. An agent can belong to a particular department and gets notified when a new conversation gets initiated if they are available.
To access this menu, go to Administration > Omnichannel > Agents. Here, you can view, add or remove agents.

Add Omnichannel Agent

To add a user as an Omnichannel agent,
  • Search or select the user from the username field.
  • Click Add.
This will automatically assign the Omnichannel Agent role to that user.

View Omnichannel Agent

On the Omnichannel Agent menu, a list of all the existing agents is available with their details and can be paginated if you have many agents. An agent's status can be seen on the Live Chat Status tab showing whether they are available or not.
