From within the Agent Desk, select the chat you want to transfer to another department and/or agent from the panel on the left. Click the 'Transfer' icon in the top right-hand corner of the chat.
In the pop-up, select the department and/or agent you want to transfer this chat to. You can either select a specific department, a specific agent within a department, or any agent (regardless of department). Only agents that are currently online and available are listed in the drop-down. If a specific agent is selected, a note must be added to provide the agent with context as to why you are referring this chat to him/her. Click 'Transfer'.
The agent you selected will receive a request to accept your chat transfer. If the agent accepts, your chat will be transferred and will no longer be in your queue. If the agent declines the transfer, the chat will remain open in your queue.
