Each department in our system has its own title, email and transcripts sending setting.
You can create any number of departments in your account, we don't limit this.
Note! You need to have at least one department in your account and one operator assigned to this department. Otherwise your chat will always show offline. If you don't want to display the list of departments on your pre-chat survey, please remove "Select department" field from the Pre-chat Survey.
