Create and manage the discussion types

However, you can switch them ON or OFF  so that they will keep on being display in your statistics but the agents won't see them in their conversation panel. Once a conversation type has been deactivated, the agent can't select it anymore in the dropdown menu. 


4. Allow agents to qualify conversations when they close a conversation

5. Using conversation types

When a conversation is being closed (or at a later point, from the chat logs), the agent is asked to tag the conversation. This step consists of tagging the conversation using one or more types, and also adding an end of discussion note if necessary.
These actions are available for agents using the Desktop or Mobile application of iAdvize and IBBÜ.

This is when the discussion types are used.

Note: it is possible to force agents to use at least one discussion type. It is also possible to prevent them from creating new types. To do this, please contact the iAdvize support team.

A Manager or Administrator can also tag a conversation afterwards : 
Reports -> Conversations -> Edit a conversation 

... and can also remove unsuitable labels. 

6. Take advantage of the conversation types

If the conversations have been tagged, you can filter your reports by type and highlight productivity factors.
