The chrome extension is your one-stop-shop for easy and quick bookings, checking to see when your next meeting is, setting yourself free or busy for calls/meetings, and linking to your Chili Piper settings.
In this article, we'll go over several elements of the Extension:
- What does "Available for Calls" mean?
- What does "You are Away" mean?
- What does "You are outside working hours" mean?
- What Chili Piper features are taking your availability into consideration?
- What is the extension showing you?
What does “Available” for calls mean?
Your calendar is free and available for both meetings to be scheduled and prospects to connect with you via Phone or Video. If your company is using Concierge for Instant Calls or Instant Video with prospects/customers, then think of this as a way to verify that you are always ready for a call. This is an easy way to set yourself back to being available if, for example, a meeting ends early - you don't want to miss that next potential sale!
What does “You are Away” mean?
You are not available for phone calls, video calls, or Hot Handoffs because you either set yourself to away or have a busy block on your calendar. You can quickly set yourself to away by using the toggle and then selecting 5, 15, 30, or 60 minutes, etc., which will block your calendar for that duration.
When you set yourself back to "Available"/"Free" by clicking on the toggle, it makes the End Time of the current busy event on your calendar to that moment, so you are available to receive phone/video calls or Hot Handoffs.
You can read more on availability here to see how you can set yourself free to mark yourself as away.
What Chili Piper features are taking your availability into consideration?
Hot Handoff - Hot Handoffs are live meeting transfers to available reps.
Concierge - With Concierge, your qualified leads can start a phone call or video call right after filling out a form on your website or from within your web app.
Ie. When a prospect fills out a form on your website and selects to chat right now, they will be connected to the phone queue, which will call the next available rep.
