Can a chat agent answer chat requests from multiple interfaces?
Chat, Chat Routing
Oracle Service Cloud
The Oracle Service Cloud application does offer the functionality to allow agents logged into one interface to accept chats coming from endusers on different interfaces. This gives the agents the ability to service multiple interfaces.
The use of Oracle RightNow Chat Cloud Service allows multiple interfaces to integrate very easily. Chat routing rules and chat queues become solely responsible for routing chats with Oracle Service Cloud Chat. By default, an agent logged into chat will have the capability of accepting chats coming from multiple interfaces. By default all enduser chat requests, regardless of interface source, will be routed into the Chat Default Queue. As long as the chat agents have profile permissions to accept chats from this queue, they will have the ability to accept chats from any interface.
If you do wish to keep chats separated according to interface then the use of chat rules and chat queues will grant this functionality. A chat queue will need to be created for each interface. From the chat rules you can then separate the chats into the newly created chat queues according to their interface source. The chat rule example shown below will route all chats coming from Interface A into Queue A.
If: Incident.Interface = Interface A
Then: Assign Chat Queue = Queue A
