Waiting Chat Queue Entries Notification

By |2018-07-09T14:59:54-05:00June 22nd, 2012|Categories: System UI|Tags: , |

Just the other day I came across an issue with a client that came up with a couple of users on the ServiceNow forums as well. The issue was that technicians monitoring a chat queue had no way of knowing that a chat was waiting unless they were staring at their chat desktop the entire time. [...]

Highlight Selected Navigation Module

A URL in ServiceNow is more than it seems at first glance.
