Can I set up automated response messages?

Auto responders are messages that, if enabled, are automatically displayed to end-users in certain scenarios. There are 10 different types of auto-responders that you can enable and edit in the ‘Auto Responders’ tab under your Chat Desk Settings. These are:

● Directing to Agent message (all channels): inform your customers that they are being redirected to an agent
● Greeting message (Web Chat): greet customers with a friendly response when they engage via Web Chat
● Connecting Agent message (Web Chat)
● Connecting Agent message with Agent Name (all channels): let customers know which agent will be handling their chat
● End Chat and Opt-Out Keywords message (all channels): enable your customers to end a chat or opt-out of the service using specific keywords
● Direct Channel message: refer your customers to the direct messaging channel of your social media accounts
● Session Timeout message (Web Chat): inform your customers that their current chat session has timed out due to inactivity
● Agent Busy message (all channels): manage customer expectations by informing customers when all agents are busy
● Out of Support Hours message (Web Chat): let customers know they have reached you outside of support hours
● End Chat message (all channels): display a message when the chat ends to include information such as a link to rate the service or just a friendly goodbye
