    [Delivered] Preview what customer is typing on chat
    User Story / Description:


    I would love to see the addition of the function where the chat agent can see, what the customers is typing before he clicks on "Send Message". I came across one of the competitors who have this function and the handling of the chat agent is reduced due to the fact that the chat agent can see what the customer is querying about BEFORE the message comes through to the agent. Like this the chat agent is already prepared of the question and can prepare a resolution before the customer is actually asking. This will reduce massively the chat handling time.

      Hello Chat Community,

      I'm happy to report that we have "Sneak Preview" on the roadmap for delivery within the next two releases. Sneak Preview allows the agent to see what the end-user is typing, before the end-user submits the text into the conversation. Thanks again for your participation on this thread and for your ideas around this feature.

      I will update when we have an exact release date!

      Hi Jessica,

      we are planning to upgrade to August 2016 (only one upgrade per year). Can you tell, if this feature will be included already in this version or more likely November 2016?

      The current plan for release is November 2016, however that is subject to change. That being said, I have high confidence that we will make the November time frame. -Jessica
