3/ Technical prerequisites for the video chat solution to properly work
Before we begin, make sure your computer is equipped with a webcam and a microphone.
1/ Receiving a new video call
1.1/ What should agents do?
Be careful: Agents often miss this step because the alert on your web browser is not very noticeable. The alert appears at the top of your browser (screenshot taken from the Chrome web browser).
Once these actions done, the video chat window opens up in your discussion panel. As long as you haven't accepted the video call, you only see your own picture. From the visitor's side, as long as you haven't accepted the video call, visitors only see their own picture.
When you accept the video call, your picture becomes smaller and ends up at the bottom right of the video. This way, you can see the visitor you're chatting with. The same happens on the visitors side of things.
1.2/ What should visitors do?
Visitors have to allow their web browser to have access to their webcam and microphone.
No other action is required. The connection is complete, you can now see the visitor!
2.1/ On the agents side
(1) Click on the red icon or click x to end a conversation.
(2) Click on the camera to deactivate it or reactivate it.
(3) Click on the microphone to deactivate it or reactivate it.
Visitors can deactivate their webcam (1), microphone (2), or the agent's microphone (3) and they can hang up (4). They have access to the discussion thread and see the alerts and messages you're sending them. They can also send you written messages.
