What is an internal chat?
LiveAgent’s internal chat allows you to connect with your colleagues without having to use any third-party application. The team chat gives you the ability to send instant text messages and as well as attachments (all common file types are supported). Moreover, the communication is only visible to you and the recipient of your message.
How do you start an internal chat?
To start, find the agent you want to contact in the “Online agents” section of the dashboard. Click on the green (online) or grey (offline) dot and select “Send instant message”. Keep in mind that you can send messages even while your colleagues are offline (they can read them at a later time).
Alternatively, you can start an internal communication directly from a ticket, or from an ongoing chat. The process is the same. Simply click on the green dot and select “Send an instant message.” When you start the communication this way, the chat will contain the ticket number that you started the conversation from.
What other features does the internal chat support?
If you want to ask for help, you have the option to copy and paste a ticket’s unique ticket number into the internal team chat, which instantly creates a clickable link. The recipient of your message can click on the link and be instantly redirected to the ticket.

The internal chat window supports multiple conversations at the same time. The size of the window can be changed according to your preference and positioned anywhere within LiveAgent’s UI.
