With the extension of the disconnection time, agents can now receive new conversations when the iAdvize app is in the background (unlike before, when the agent's app was in the background on iOS, the agent was disconnected after 30 seconds).
From now on:
- When the application goes into the background, conversations continue to be pushed for 5 hours to agents before they are automatically switched to unavailable status and disconnected from the app.
- To ensure a satisfactory response time to the visitor, if agents do not respond to the visitor's first message within 30s, the conversation is pushed to another available agent, only in the context of an asynchronous conversation AND when the transfer comes from a bot.
This functionality is unified for all agents, whether they are on Android, or iOS.
In your profile, an information appears when you activate the green button "available" (channels: chat / mobile app, video):
"When the app goes into the background, you remain available for 5 hours. If you receive a conversation, you have 30 seconds to return to the app, otherwise it is reassigned and you become unavailable."
If your application is in the background, you have 30 seconds to be active/back on your application to respond to your new visitor. If you have not been responsive enough, so as not to leave your visitor with a long period without a response from the operator, the new conversation is pushed to another agent, only in the context of an asynchronous conversation AND when the transfer comes from a bot.
You receive a notification:
"The conversation has been reassigned. Come back into the app to receive new conversations."
Overall, if your app is in the background and no conversations have been pushed to you for 5 hours, your status automatically changes to "unavailable" and you are disconnected from the app.
After 5 hours, you receive a "reminder" notification that explains that you need to reopen your app to receive new conversations.
"You are now in unavailable status. Come back into the app to receive new conversations."
