How to Create a Help Desk Ticket Within a Chat Window


ProProfs Chat enables you to create a Help Desk ticket without leaving the chat window. As a result, it reduces the turnaround time (TAT) and equips them to deliver an improved customer service experience. During ticket creation, your operators can also attach chat transcripts and access their Help Desk inboxes directly from the chat window.


Creating a ticket from within the chat window helps you:


  • Reduce response time

  • Save time that operators otherwise invest in ticket creation

  • Improve customer experience
