The desktop conversation panel

As an agent, your main tool is your iAdvize conversation panel. Here is a presentation of information and features that are available.


1. Agent ID

It is visible in the title tab of your browser.


You may be asked to enter your agent ID, especially when using DDI (click-to-call).

You can also find your login in the menu "..." at the top right. You will be able to easily copy it in one click if you need to communicate it to your visitor, for example.


2. Toolbar

It is divided into two functions :

  • Show or hide the actions of the visitor (mouse movement, form input, position on the page, etc.)
  • Display up to four discussions simultaneously on the screen

3. Status management

Visualise your status for each channel.

The channels displayed in your conversation panel are those associated with your user account from the administration.

There are three colours, each corresponding to a status:

  • Green: you are available on this channel, and can get a new contact
  • Orange: you are busy and cannot receive a new contact on this channel
  • Red: you are not available on this channel

Statuses are updated automatically. If you reach your limit of concurrent discussions, your status will change to occupied until a discussion is concluded.

Need a break? You can manually change your status to unavailable while you take a coffee break.


4. Logout button, iAdvize Garden and personal canned answers

Click the three dots button visible at the top right in order to access the iAdvize Garden, manage your personal canned answers, and to log out.

Please handle your current conversations before logging out.



5. Mirroring / Co-browsing

During a discussion with a visitor, you will see their navigation on your site. Identifying the current page, observing the actions of the visitor or taking control of the navigation can be very helpful when dealing with your visitors.

6. The Chat box

The chat box is the central element of the conversation panel. It contains information about the visitor, messages exchanged and the tools available during the discussion (message filter, sending a link or an offer, etc.).

An article is dedicated to to the chat window: Introducing the chat window (on the conversation panel side).

7. Ongoing discussions

At the bottom of your conversation panel is a bar containing all of your discussions in the form of boxes. 

Each box contains information about the conversation :


  • An icon indicating the chat channel currently used
  • Few letters identifying the project ("iAdvize" in this screenshot) followed by the contact ID
  • A green or red dot indicating whether the visitor is online or offline (= left the website)
  • Time elapsed since the agent last message pupitre-visiteur-dernier-message.pngand the duration of the conversation pupitre-visiteur-duree-message.png
  • The last message of the visitor

There are 3 colours that enable you to identify which conversation must be prioritised:

  • In green, the active conversation on the screen.
  • In red, conversation waiting for a response from you.
  • In white, conversation awaiting a response from the visitor.

The visitor status is displayed :

  • In red, the visitor is offline.
    In green, the visitor is still online.

Click on a box to display the associated discussion on your conversation panel.

8. Snooze a conversation

A visitor does not answer momentarily because he has left the site? 

If asynchronous messaging* is configured on your account, it is then possible to snooze a conversation for a certain length of time (3 hours, 24 hours or custom). The conversation in progress will disappear from the conversation panel. 

It's also known as the snooze. In this case, the "Pause" button will appear on your desk.


Asynchronous messaging is a new way to engage your online visitors. Online visitors can send messages even though no respondent is available to answer their queries in real-time.

NB : You can now choose to keep a chat after the snoozed expires if you think you will be available at that time.

This way, when the chat is out of snooze (new visitor message or out of the snooze period), it will be assigned to you and will reappear in your conversation panel as soon as you are available to receive a chat.  



⚠ When the conversation is assigned to you and is not handled within 24 hours, the conversation will be re-assigned to another agent in the same group. This is implemented to avoid a long waiting time for the visitors (this is also the case when a conversation is transferred to an unavailable agent). 

9. Transfer a visitor

You don't have the answer to a question or if you are simply not available to respond to request ? You can always forward a conversation to another agent or a group of agents


Another agent will take over.

10. End a conversation

Do not forget to end your conversations when they are finished, in order to free up slots and receive others chats :
