How to use the Skill Based Routing?

Skill-based routing is a feature used with the erxes Messenger. Moreover, it makes conversations easier since each member can be assigned to a conversation automatically based on their skills. For example, if the operator deals with people with different languages there's a possibility to create a Language Skill Type and add the list of languages that are needed. Also, the person with the German language will be assigned to the person that chose German as an option.

Here are the steps to activate the Skills-Based Routing:

  1. To use the Skill Based Routing the permission must be given. Please go to Settings -> Permission and add Skills Permissions.

  5. The team member can only see the conversations that he/she was assigned to certain skills.
