Blocking a visitor

Sometimes, a visitor may inconvenience your agents (repeated contact, malicious comments etc.). In this case, you can block this visitor from contacting your agents again.

1/ Blocking a visitor from the discussion panel
2/ Blocking a visitor from the administration
3/ Seeing all blocked visitors

4/ Unblocking a visitor




1/ Blocking a visitor from the discussion panel

To block a visitor from the discussion panel, click the link "Block this visitor" in the left panel of your chat window. You will be asked to confirm the action.



The visitor taking part in the discussion will be informed that the agent has been unexpectedly disconnected:



Once the discussion has been closed, this visitor will no longer be invited to chat using iAdvize from your site.

Note: If the visitor changes computer or browser or deletes his/her cookies, we can no longer identify him/her and the blocking will no longer apply.


2/ Blocking a visitor from the administration

You can also block a visitor from your administration after ending the conversation. For this, go to "Reporting" > "Conversations" to find the conversation.



Once you have identified the right conversation, click the icon to see more details (1) then go to the "Customer Data" tab (2). Select the "Block this visitor" option (3).



3/ Seeing all blocked visitors


In the reporting, from the "Conversations" report, click the "List of visitors" icon displayed on the right:


You will see a table showing all client files having had a conversation with one of your agents. By sorting the table by "Blocked", you will show the visitors who have been blocked at the top of the list.



Note:

  • The telephone number shown in the block column shows that the visitor was blocked following contact via the "Click to call" channel.
  • By default a visitor is blocked forever. By clicking the "Edit" icon you can see the details of this visitor, and also decide to block this client until a specific date.


4/ Unblocking a visitor



To unblock a visitor, go to the same page and then modify the visitor file. You can then disable the block:
