forward

  • When the bot is not trained to handle a visitor, it can forward the chat to a human operator.
  • The bot can also forward the chat to a specific operator who is an expert in the topic.
  • You can also add an info message indicating the status of the chat that the bot will display once the chat has been forwarded to the operator.
