Find out if you’re missing out on potential customers. With the missed chats report, you can check which visitors didn’t get a reply from your agents and left the chat. This report helps you both keep an eye on the numbers as well as follow up on particular cases.

A chat counts as missed if there was no reply either from an agent or a bot. The first welcome message sent automatically doesn’t count as a reply.
