Glossary of terms
This is a glossary of core terms relevant to working with the agent dashboard.

A group of support agents that can be configured by a Mavenoid admin. Live support nodes can route conversations to different groups, so if your support team is organized by location, time zone, expertise, or any other factor, flows can ensure the right conversations go to the right agents.

Any problem, question, or task that an end user encounters in their use of a product.
The process of collecting information about a support request. In traditional support processes this can be a tedious back and forth between an end user and a support agent that must be completed before any real progress can be made; with Mavenoid, the assistant automatically collects the relevant information as part of its troubleshooting flow. If the support request is escalated the information is provided automatically to the relevant support agent, saving time for both them and the end user.
During live chat, a call between a support agent and an end user in which the user is sharing their camera so that the agent can see what they see.
See Understand video calls for more.
During live chat, a call between a support agent and an end user in which the user is sharing their microphone so that the agent can hear what the user hears and so that the agent and user can converse via voice.
