Assigning conversations in a round-robin fashion.

Last updated on Apr 10, 2024

Chatwoot follows a round-robin auto-assignment system for conversations. This means that if there are people available (called "agents") who can respond to messages in a specific inbox, the system will divide the conversations evenly among them. If all the agents are not available, the conversations will not be assigned to anyone and will be categorized as “Unassigned”. This feature is turned on by default.
