Setting your availability status Follow

    Is it possible for an admin to set the availability of other chat agents? Some of our agents often forget to set themselves as available.

    Yes! Being able to change another agents status would be very helpful. 

    Also, what are the parameters for being "idle?" It seems to be logging us off even though we are in the chat module.

    Agreed - We are a small team so that capability is very necessary.  I can control it in 'Talk' why not in 'Chat'.

    + 1, it comes up quite often that I'd need to change someone's status.

    Is there a way we can add a widget or API that admins will be able to control the status of the agents.

    Any updates on this becoming a possibility? It would be a very helpful feature!

    It appears that the auto-timeout is based on the Zendesk chat tab in your browser staying as the primary focus on the desktop.  Although this functionality is fine for full-time agents, this doesn't work for part-time agents who only occasionally answer chats throughout the day.  It would be nice for the inactivity timeout to rely on Windows Screen Saver (or some other system level inactivity indicator).
