Home > The “Call Me” Feature
Categories: Getting Started
(Last Updated On: November 21, 2018)
The Call-me feature allows your visitors to talk directly to your agent either by phone, headset, or mic and speakers. Unlimited incoming calls are allowed and the feature is available on all plans and free of charge.
When a visitor clicks the Call Me button they will have the option to call by computer or by phone. Your agent will see that the visitor is calling from their computer and your agent will receive a call from a system based phone number with a US 720 area code. Once the visitor clicks the Call Me button then selects the call by phone option they will receive a call from a system based US 720 number. Next the agent will be called and the two phones will be connected. When a visitor calls from a phone your agent will see the visitor’s phone number they are calling from.
During the “Call-Me” we will pause your agent. When the call ends they will be automatically unpaused.
