Interacting with chat users

Support agents use Live Chat to resolve user queries. When you receive a new chat request from a self-service user or a BMC Helix Virtual Agent user, you can view the chat and join the session. You can view user information and use resources to help resolve the user's queries. From a chat session, you can also create an incident or a work order.
