Sometimes as a rep you might find yourself in a spammy chat and want to not just end the chat but prevent that user from starting another chat with you again.

In FuseDesk you can easily block a user right from your Chat View.

At the bottom of the chat, simply click the Block User button.

If you’ve already created a case, this button will be visible on its own.

If you haven’t created a case yet, Block User will be in action menu at the bottom of the chat where you can create a case, ignore the chat, and so on.

After you click to block a user, you’ll have to confirm that you want to block them.

Once a user has been blocked, the chat will be immediately closed.

The chat history will then show who blocked the chat and when it was blocked.

Platform Support for Blocking Users
