To improve your team’s productivity you can auto-resolve (close) conversations with customers who have stopped interacting. You can set the time for auto-resolving conversations.
This will help your team to better organize their Inbox and focus on conversations that require their attention.
To do this, go to Admin Settings > Auto-resolve Chats. Push the toggle to Enabled. You can do this for all the conversations or conversations assigned to specific groups.
Set the time limit after which the conversation will be auto-resolved.
You can also label auto-resolved messages to easily identify them later.
Now if a customer doesn't reply to a conversation for more than 15 minutes, the conversation will be auto-resolved (closed) and moved to the Resolved view.
