How to Create & Manage Operator Groups


Creating operator groups and managing chats with your customers and website visitors is simple with ProProfs. You can assign a keyword and URL to specific operator groups and auto-route chats to a particular group.


Let's say your e-commerce website has a high cart abandonment rate. To tackle this issue, you can create a new operator group that will receive chats when a customer initiates a chat from the cart page. 


Benefits of creating operator groups:


  • Automate rerouting of customer chats to the right groups

  • Reduce the response time to a customer query

  • Improve the overall efficiency of your customer support


Here’s an overview of operator groups you create in ProProfs Live Chat:

Set up an Operator group


1. Group Name: Enter the name of your new group in the box. For example, ‘Abandoned Cart,’ to resolve any customer queries related to the checkout and order placement.

2. Routing: To direct customer chat invites to the ‘Abandoned Cart’ group, you can use the following options:


  • Choose a condition between “Is” or “Contains.” Enter the URL or a specific keyword to target.


Specify URL or keywords in the URL to route chat to operator(s)


When your website URL ‘contains’ - You can provide a part of your website URL as a keyword in this option. For example, you can specify the keyword ‘cart’ here, so when a customer initiates a chat on this URL, it will go to the ‘Abandoned Cart’ group.

When your website URL ‘is’ - You can enter the exact URL to route customer chats from that page to a group. 


  • Use the “Add another URL” option to target multiple URLs and redirect customer chats on that page to this group of operators.
