Work with chats and customers

On the main product page, you can find all chats available to you:


The chat page view may vary depending on your role and the configuration set by an administrator.

Select account

If you are using Tovie Platform, you can work in different accounts and switch between them. To switch to the account in the Tovie Agent interface, select it from the dropdown list next to the logo in the upper left corner.

If you are using Tovie DialogStudio, you can work in only one account named My projects.

Join chat

Аn agent can join chats manually unless an administrator has enabled the Automatically assign chats option:

  • If you see the In queue tab on the chat page, you should join chats manually. Chats won’t be assigned to you automatically.
  • If there is no such tab, chats will be assigned to you automatically.

Please note that you cannot have more chats in progress than the administrator specified in settings.

Internal comments on dialogs

You can leave personal comments or comments for other agents and attach files to them.

To add a comment, go to the dialog and select the Comment mode next to the message input field.

Adding a comment
In the dialog, comments are highlighted in yellow as well as the message input field. Please ensure you have placed the comment in the right field. Once it is sent, it cannot be cancelled.

You can hide all comments or all messages using the  filter in the top pane.

Use prompters

You can refer to prompter bots during a dialog with a customer:

  • To use the context prompter, select next to the message input field. Prompts will be displayed automatically.

  • To see its prompts for earlier messages, hover over the necessary message and select next to the customer’s name.
