Change the Maximum Number of Concurrent Chats

You can set the maximum number of chats an agent can handle concurrently:

  • At the individual user level
  • At the team level
  • At both levels

Team-level settings apply to all members of the team. If you configure a different maximum in a user profile, the user setting takes priority. For example, you might have a large team with maximum concurrent chats set at 3. However, a few experienced agents on that team can handle more, so you set a limit of 5 in their user profiles. The minimum number of concurrent chats you can set is 1 and the maximum is 12.

If your tenantClosed High-level organizational grouping used to manage technical support, billing, and global settings for your CXone environment is configured for single-channel handling, and you assign an agent to skills for different channels, that agent can only handle one interaction per channel at a time. For example, you assign an agent to inbound voice, chat, and email skills. The agent could handle one chat, one email, OR one phone call. This is true even if you set the agent's concurrent chat maximum higher than 1. However, if the agent is only assigned to a chat skill, the maximum concurrent chat settings apply.

If you want agents to handle multiple channels and multiple interactions per channel, dynamic delivery offers this functionality.
