Transfer A Chat Interaction

In this lesson, you will learn how to transfer chat interactions to an internal target. This lesson contains the following section:

Transferring a Chat Interaction

The Workspace Chat Interaction window enables you to transfer your current chat interaction to another party. In this section, you will learn how to use the Team Communicator feature to transfer a chat interaction to an internal target. The Team Communicator enables you to find an internal target or a contact, send an Instant Message (IM) to an internal target, call a contact or an internal target, initiate a chat conference, or transfer chat interaction. This section contains the following procedure:

Lesson: Starting an instant chat transfer

Purpose: To find an internal target (such as an agent, Routing Point, or queue), and then transfer the chat to the internal target.

Prerequisites

Start

  1. In the active Chat Interaction window, click Transfer to open the Team Communicator (see the Finding an internal target for a chat transfer in the active Chat Interaction window figure) to find the internal target to whom you want to transfer the current interaction (see the Lesson: Using the Team Communicator feature to find an internal target).

  2. Click the Action Menu drop-down list that is displayed next to the name of the internal target to whom you want to transfer the interaction and then select Instant Chat Transfer. An invitation is sent to the target to accept the chat transfer.

Lesson: Receiving a transferred chat

Purpose: To receive a transferred chat interaction from another agent.

Prerequisites

Start

  1. If another agent wants to transfer a chat interaction to you, they can choose between an instant transfer and a transfer from a consultation. You are notified of the consultation request by the Workspace Interaction Preview interactive notification (see the Interaction Preview interactive notification, informing you of a transfer request figure).

    Tip
    If you are using a screen reader, your system might be configured to give the focus to the Interaction Preview window. In this scenario, your screen reader will automatically read the window title to you. Navigate to the content area to have your screen reader read the Interaction Preview content. However, if your system is not configured to give the focus to the Interaction Preview window, to have your screen reader read the contents of the Interaction Preview window, you must use screen navigation to give the focus to the Interaction Preview.

    Click Accept to accept the transfer or to consult first with the calling agent:

    • If the calling agent initiated an instant transfer, the call is immediately transferred to you. Go to Step 3 of the Lesson: Handling an inbound chat interaction.
    • If the calling agent initiated a consultation transfer, the Workspace Chat Interaction window is displayed. It shows your status as connected to the calling agent.
