Assign to Agents


This feature is deprecated and is no longer available.

The assign to agents feature allows you to perform bulk operations and continue with other actions while it gets executed in the background. You can use this feature to create multiple cases and assign them to agents in bulk.
To upload multiple cases, you can upload a .csv file that contains MSISDNs and corresponding Case IDs and Agent IDs. The file is validated in the back end, and an email is sent to the team manager in case of any conflicts or a successful upload. This will allow the agents to take immediate action on the chats. The status of the uploaded files can be checked in the Track Upload Status screen.



This feature is available only for the SMS channel. The mobile number is mandatory, but the Case ID is not. If you don't provide a Case ID, then the application automatically creates a Case ID (format: CSXXXXXXXXX).

To assign SMS chats to agents, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Customer Care Console > Settings > Cases > Assign to Agents.

  1. Click Download Sample File Here, enter all the required fields and save the file.
  2. Click Upload cases to browse and select the .csv file from the local system. On successful upload, a confirmation message is displayed.



  • You can upload only .csv files and the maximum allowable file size is ≀ 5 MB.
  • The first row of the file must be the header row.
  • The column headers must match the alias name configured in the parameters list.
  • You can upload a file with up to 25 columns.
  • The agent ID column is mandatory in the .csv file.

After uploading, the Map Parameters fields will appear on the screen.

  1. To map parameters, select the Mobile Number, Chat ID, and the Long Code (which will be displayed as sender ID) details from the respective drop-down lists.
    4. Click Next.

The following checks are performed:

Mobile Number:

  • All values in the mobile number column must contain numbers.
  • The length of the mobile number must be 12. (including the ISD code)
  • There cannot be any duplicate mobile numbers in the file.
  • There cannot be any live cases for a mobile number in the file.

Case ID:

  • There cannot be any duplicate case IDs in the file.
  • There cannot be any cases in the application with identical case IDs in the file.
  • Parameters in the columns must match the pre-configured parameter list.
  • The length of the chat ID can be maximum of 16 characters.


  • Column in the uploaded file must match with the configured parameter list.
  • Parameter names must match the filed/column names defined in the uploaded file (.CSV) and should match exactly (case sensitive) the replaceable parameter name.
  • The configured alias names must match the columns in the uploaded file.
  1. Click Next, the distribute section appears on the screen

  1. In the distribute section, click the Split the case equally between presently logged in agents option to assign the cases equally to all the currently active agents.



If a team contains fewer cases than the agents, then a single case is assigned to each agent until all the cases are assigned.

  1. Click the Assign to agents based on Agent ID specified in the Agent ID column option and select a column (from the file uploaded) from the drop-down list. This selection will assign the case to a specific agent.



If the Agent ID is not found, all such cases are assigned to agents equally.

  1. Click "Submit" to initiate the action to display a confirmation message.

After uploading the .csv file, a case gets created if there is no active case on the provided mobile number. As per the setting selection, the chat gets assigned to agents.
