Why can't a custom field value be saved by the chat workspace?
Oracle Service Cloud
The chat agent sets a custom field value from the chat workspace for a contact custom field. However, the value of that field does not save successfully. The custom field value remains unchanged in the contact record.
This can be resolved by enabling the Data Synchronization option within the chat session workspace used by that agent. To do this, go to related chat workspace > Options > Other Options > Ticked 'Synchronize common fields across related records automatically'.
For additional information, refer to the 'Configure Incident Creation and Editing for Chat' section in online documentation for the version your site is currently running. To access Oracle Service Cloud manuals and documentation online, refer to the Documentation for Oracle Service Cloud Products.
