Agent types and permission

Agent is the person who will log in Subiz system to work with customer.
Each agent owns one account included: Name, Email and Username

Once register, you cannot change Email and Username.

Base on the roles in Subiz live chat, there are 3 types of agents corresponding to 3 types of accounts in Subiz

  1. Owners
  2. Administrators
  3. Normal agent

1. Owner

Owner is corresponded to the owner account which registers and creates Subiz lience.
This agent owns supreme rights such as: adding ,deleting, locking, unlocking, changing setting, decentralizing other agents.

Owner is always in ON state.

Note that only owner has right to access Subscription to check as well as manage service package’s information.

Each account system has only one owner. If you need change owner, you have to send request to for our assistance.


2. Adminitrator

Agent belong to administrator group takes role as team leader in real life. This account has every rights like Owner except for accessing to Subscription

On your Subiz account system, it is better if you limit your administrator in 1 or 2 account(s) to manage settings.


3. Normal agent

Normal Agent (or normal account)  just has basic rights such as: chatting and observing visitors’ actions

On Setting, normal agent only can set up and use canned response, chat tag

Owner or Adminitrator  can decentralize  normal agent to view the chat content of other agents or not. 


Subiz message delivery status

While you are chatting with visitors, sometimes, your messages are not delivered to customer. So what’s happen? This page is designed to help you walk through troubleshooting steps to diagnose and hopefully fix the problem.

Firstly, you should understand Subiz message status mechanism. This mechanism has been developed and updated on August, 2015 by Subiz. We use some different symbols to describe the state of message. By this one, you will know at a glance where the conversation stands.


1. Translucent (semi-transparent) message


Via descriptions above, you might understand a part of Subiz message status. However, after working with our clients, we realize that the number of semi-transparent cases is more frequently than others. That’s why we want to focus on this phenomenon: translucent message.

When you see translucent message, it means the message has been sent to the Subiz serve but hasn’t reached Subiz chat widget. So, your customer hasn’t received the message yet!

2. Why does translucent message happen?


Translucent happens  because by the time you send message, your visitor has been disconnected from Subiz serve. There are some reasons for this disconnection such as:

 + Visitor device gets internet’s disconnection

 + Visitor has loaded your page or turned into new page

+ Visitor has closed your website

Especially, visitors who are browsing from mobile devices: Right after their screen is not in your website, their website connection will be interrupted immediately.

If visitor doesn’t re-connect within 60s, Subiz will inform: “Visitor is offline”

3. What should you do in this case?


The message stored in Subiz serve will be sent to visitor right after they reconnect to your website. You should wait 5s or 10s and resend message to certain that customer just has been disconnected temporarily.

To minimize the number of undelivered message, Subiz strongly recommends that you reply customer as soon as possible to decrease customer’s waiting time which might cause them to leave your website

For futher information about Subiz message status, do not hesitate to contact us. We always stand by you for effective support.
