Email Transcript

What is the Email Transcript app?

Email Transcript is a marketplace app that can be used by agents to send the conversation transcript either to themselves or to the customer via email.

Email Transcript is available in the Freshchat Apps store (Marketplace).

Types of Email Transcripts

There are 2 types of conversation transcripts that you can get

1. Until resolution - the transcript will contain most recent messages until it was last resolved. 

2. Full conversation - the transcript will contain all the messages in the conversation.

Note: The limit to the number of messages sent in a conversation is 200.

You can send the transcript to the customer or to yourself (agent). The transcript sent to the customer will contain only the conversation messages. Whereas, the transcript sent to the agent will contain private notes and system messages as well.
