Create an email ticket from live chat


Create a ticket is a gated feature. Contact support to activate it.

In customer support industries, live chat serves as the default platform for rapid communication. However, certain complex issues may surpass the capabilities of Level 1 (L1) agents. In such cases, Create a ticket feature becomes a crucial tool, allowing L1 agents to seamlessly transition from live chat to a ticketed system. By addessing the live chat an agent can convert the same query to an email ticket by clicking Create a ticket. This feature facilitates a smooth process wherein L1 agents can extract essential information from customers, subsequently creating a ticket for in-depth analysis by Level 2 (L2) agents.

Create a ticket option proves valuable in scenarios such as:

  • Creating a ticket for internal analysis by L2 agents.
  • Facilitating a threaded conversation between a different agent and the customer on the email channel.
  • Recording the chat conversation and creating a ticket for reference.
