Wrap-up Time and Delay Between Chats Settings

How do the Delay Between Chats and Wrap-up Time settings work?


Chat - Agent Console
Oracle B2C Service


The 'Delay Between Chats' setting controls the time between invitations.  In an example profile, if the delay is set to 30 seconds, an agent will receive one invitation and then 30 seconds later a second invitation, and so on.  This is helpful for when an agent first logs into chat.  If the queue is full, the agent will not receive multiple chat invitations all at one time.  There will be a 30 second delay between each invitation the agent receives, up to the Max Sessions value.   

For additional information, refer to the 'Add Chat permissions to a profile' section in the Online Help User Guide documentation for the version your site is currently running.

Wrap-up mode is designed to allow the agent to complete any post-chat tasks such as creating an incident, adding the chat to an existing incident, or creating an opportunity from the chat. Wrap-up time is configurable and represents a guideline in which the agent should finish post-chat operations.

NOTE: Chat will not close automatically after the wrap-up timer expires. In order to achieve this, the agent must manually click on the 'Terminate' button from the ribbon.

If an agent is set to a Max Session value of 3 and they have three active sessions, once one chat completes, that agent will then have one available session.Chats that are in wrap-up mode count as an active session.

For additional information, refer to the 'Configure incident creation and editing for chat' section in the Online Help User Guide documentation for the version your site is currently running.

In the above scenario, with one available session, and as long as at least 30 seconds have passed since the last invitation was received, the agent will then receive the next chat invitation.
