Overriding your working hours
Your working hours include your recurring availability plus any date-specific overrides. You can override your working hours by toggling Accept chats ON or OFF.
Outside working hours, Accept chats will be OFF. Toggle it ON to accept chats temporarily. Remember to toggle it back off, else you’ll remain available to accept live chats outside of recurring working hours.
Inside working hours, Accept chats will be ON. Toggle it OFF if you do not want to accept chats temporarily. Remember to toggle it back on to be available to accept chats again.
