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.


For example, if you've assigned the URL ‘’ to an operator group called 'Sales,’ chats initiated by your website visitor on that URL are routed to the 'Sales' group. All operators in this group receive the chat invite based on their availability.


Note: All our pricing plans start with a 15-day free trial. During this time, a customer can have a maximum of two operator groups. For more details, please check your plan to know how many groups you can create once the trial period ends.


Benefits of creating operator groups:


  • Auto-route 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:

When your website URL 'is all pages' - It means the entire website on which you’ve added ProProfs Chat. When your customer or website visitor initiates a chat on any webpage of your website, it goes to the 'Sales' group.


When your website URL 'contains' - You can provide a part of your website URL as a keyword in this option.

When your website URL 'is' - You can enter a particular URL in this option. For example, you can provide your product pricing page URL here, so when a customer initiates a chat on this URL, it will go to the 'Sales' group.
