Both agents and users can receive an email notification when a new message is received.
Email notifications for admin and agents
When a user sends their first message, if the conversation is assigned to a department, an email is sent only to the agents assigned to that department, if the conversation is assigned to a specific agent, an email is sent only to that agent, otherwise an email is sent to all agents who are not online at the moment. Subsequent emails are sent only to the last agent in the conversation.
Email notifications are sent only if the last agent in the conversation is offline.
If you’re using the Dialogflow App, and
Settings > Dialogflow > Human takeover is active, no emails are sent if the chatbot knows the answer.
If you don’t receive the emails make sure they are working by sending a test email from
Settings > Notifications > Test user email or
Test agent email. If you don’t receive the test email, your server, or your SMTP server, is not working. Open the browser console for more details about the error. Because this is not an issue related to EBOT365 , the support doesn’t cover it, please contact your server/hosting/SMTP support instead.
