What are macros? How to use it?

Macros are commands that automate actions in chats and save operators time. Using just one button you can:

  • send a standard message to a client;
  • fill in a comment and other text fields in client info card;
  • leave an internal comment for other operators;
  • mark chat as unread;
  • close chat;
  • close request;
  • assign chat to another operator or to operator group and leave a comment;
  • assign or delete tags to/from a client or a request;
  • make a POST request and open a page with results;
  • execute a Python script and open the results page.

 

Macros can contain one or several actions. To run a macro simply click on a relevant button in a chat window or press alt+number
