How to Set Your Live Chat Business Hours


ProProfs Live Chat lets you set business hours during which your chat support team can handle customer queries.


By setting business hours, you can:


1. Enable transparency around your customer support services.

2. Manage incoming chats effectively, even with a small support team.


Here are a few use cases of this feature:


1. It will prevent operators from connecting with visitors after business hours, thus ensuring security.

2. It will automatically switch the operator’s status to ‘Online’ (Accept Chats) during and to ‘Offline’ (Don’t Accept Chats) after business hours.


Note: Before setting up the active support hours, you must select the correct timezone. Here's how you can do it: How to Set the Chat Dashboard Timezone
