Whats New: Skill-based Routing

Your chat routing logic determines with which Operator your customers get in touch with, so it has a big impact on the speed and quality of their chat experience. Our default routing method brings your widget online when an Operator of a connected Operator Group comes online. Our Group Select feature lets your customers select the Operator Group that they wish to chat with. Now you have another option: Skill-based Routing.

With this, you define Skills and connect them to your Chat Widgets and Operators. So when your customer starts a chat through a specific Widget, it's guided to one of your Operators based on a Skills match of your Widgets and Operators.

To start off, head to the Userlike Dashboard and select Config > Skills. Here you create skills that define the abilities, languages, and topics that your Operators are able to service. Next, you assign them to your Support Team. To do this, head to Config > Operators, then select an Operator to edit. After selecting an Operator, click on the Skills tab. Here you can select the skills of this Operator, and update its Operator settings. To set your Widget to Skill-based Routing, head to the Config > Widgets. Select your widget, then Chat > Routing. After selecting the Skills option, you can select each skill you wish to connect to this widget. After updating your settings, your widget will load when an Operator with one or more of Skill Sets goes online within the Chat Panel.

To make getting started with Skills easier, we've put together a handy tutorial for you to follow. Take a look at our Chat Routing Setup Tutorial!

Skill-based Routing is available to customers beginning on our Business Product.

Thanks for reading, and happy chatting!

Daily Widget Service Times

With the widget service time you control how your Chat Widget behaves outside of your service hours. You can hide the chat button, for example. Or if you make use of Chat Butler, you can prevent it from showing up when your chat isn't staffed. This way you don't create false expectations for your web visitors.

Now we've expanded this feature by adding service times per day. Maybe you don't offer chat support on, say, Sunday's. Now you can process that in your Chat Widget, as well as your fixed service times for all other days of the week.
