How to Add a Custom Status


In ProProfs Chatthe chat admin can add a custom offline status such as "In a meeting" (when busy with internal meetings) or "Out for lunch" (when they are offline), which allows the chat operator to select the preferred status from the user account menu. This lets the chat admin monitor their chat operator(s) productivity and working hours via status reports. 


NOTE:  Only the chat admin can add a custom status, whereas the chat operator can only select from the available statuses.


Here’s how a chat operator can set a custom status :
