Add operators and Assign roles in SalesIQ

Add operators and Assign roles in SalesIQ

Add more power and make your customer service run smoothly by adding operators in Zoho SalesIQ. With the ability to add members to your team and configuring them into one of three roles, you will be able to find the optimal structure for your live chat operation. 

How to add operators?

From the moment you create your Zoho SalesIQ portal, your live chat operation is staffed with one operator and administrator—you. But as great as you are, we think Zoho SalesIQ becomes infinitely more powerful utilized as a tool for small teams, where everyone can pitch-in and connect with visitors as a part of a total-support culture. That is why we made it easy to add your team members to your Zoho SalesIQ, so they too can connect with customers and get started delivering instant happiness.To add an Operator: 
  1. In the Settings > Operators (under General settings), click the Add button at the top right corner.



  1. Then, enter the operator's e-mail address in the field to proceed. 
  2. Now, choose what role you want this particular operator to have:
    1. Administrator - Can access all the information, edit configurations and has the power to perform any action in Zoho SalesIQ. 
    2. Supervisor - Has restricted power to perform actions and can access selective information (i.e., they can access the Websites, Automation and Integrations sections in the Settings tab.) 
    3. Associate - Connect and chat with the website visitors and can access/view only their personal data and chat information in the Zoho SalesIQ console.

  1. You can associate the operators with your existing departments. Enter the name of the department in the input field or select the Department by scrolling through the drop down menu. Select the departments you want to relate the operator with. 

  1. You can toggle on the Available to take chats switch to enable the operators to attend incoming chats.
    Toggling it off will disable their access to Visitors Online Module and modify their availability status.
  2. Enable the Monitor chats option to monitor the operators ongoing conversations to train and jump in immediately when they require your help. 

  1. Finally, click Add Operator button at the bottom.

Change Operator Role

  1. In the Settings > Operators Section, hover over the operator you wish to edit and click anywhere on the operator tile.
  2. On the operator profile page, click on the settings icon on the right side to edit the operators profile.
  3. Scroll down to Choose a Role and select your required Role from the list.
