Monitor the HR chat queue

Employees can ask a question from the Chat with HR link on the HR Portal. Their question is placed in the HR chat queue, and any HR agent monitoring the queue can respond to it.

About this task

By default, all members of the HR group monitor the HR chat queue. When a question is submitted to the queue, a pop-up notification appears.
