Chat is normally active. Perhaps someone disabled it through the registry. Check the CTIOS registry on the servers. Search for "AgentChatLevel".
If this is the string "Disabled", then change it. Here are your choices for this STRING value.
Disabled=All agent chat disabled.
PrimarySupervisor=Agents can chat only with primary supervisor of their team.
TeamSupervisors=Agents can chat with the primary or secondary supervisor of their team.
Team=Agents can chat with anyone in team.
Unrestricted=Agents can chat with anyone on the same peripheral
Sorry it's been so long, but we are again looking at the issue with the chat button being disabled (greyed out) on the agents including supervisors.
The issue is only affecting our Los Angeles call center. Our Sacramento call center is fine.
We checked the registry settings on the serves and the AgentChatLevel is set to TeamSupervisors and the SupervisorChatLevel is set to Unrestricted.
Any other registry settings I should look at? Thanks!
Are these agents connecting to the same CTIOS server as other agents? Are they using a customized CTIOS desktop? Did you check the registry settings on both side A and side B? Try cycling the CTIOS servers to make sure the changes are processed.
Yes, all agents point to the same A and B servers. Both A and B side servers have the same registry settings. Servers have been cycled few times.
This doesn't make sense. Can you start with a laptop in Sacramento where you've verified that chat work, then ship that laptop to LA and test chat?
We can try that. What I did too was logged in using one of LA's supervisor and agent account on a SAC pc and chat was enabled. I've asked the LA IT staff to verify if the issue is affecting all or certain users. Will keep you posted. Thank you for your responses!
Chat is working in our LA office. We removed/re-added the registry settings then rebooted the server in LA. That was it.
Thank you guys for your replies and comments!
