Agent triggering phrases


From here you can turn on or off the agent chat and set the triggering words or phrases for live chat invocation. By default, if the bot fails to answer for three times then it will automatically switch to live agent.

Once you turn on the agent chat, it will enable the live agent chat flow in the chatbot dashboard (Only visible if agent chat is turned ON). This flow gets started when the user asks for live chat.


Step 5: Agents can login with the Email-Id and password (created while adding agent) from agent webapp: floatbot livechat and manage their chats with customers from live chat dashboard.
