Other Settings

Client admin can configure other client-level settings such as:

Automatically Close Chats After

Client admin can define the duration (in days) beyond which the open chats will be automatically closed. The maximum duration the client admin can configure is 60 days.

Automatically Move Chats to Hold After

Client admins can now choose to customize the duration for which a chat can be automatically moved to on-hold status from the queue.



The threshold configured in Auto Hold setting should be less than Automatically Close Chats After setting to avoid chats closure before moving to hold status.

Time Zone

Client admin can configure the time zone for a tenant using time zone settings. The administrator can even search a time zone by directly typing the time zone name in the Time Zone drop-down list rather that scrolling through the exhaustive time zones list. The time zones are sorted in the ascending order of their offset values. The time zones that share the same offset value are sorted alphabetically. Once a time zone is configured, all message time stamps and reports will display information as per the time zone configured here.




  • In general, the default time zone value remains tenant time zone and is highlighted in grey for easier identification.
  • The user time zone takes precedence over the tenant time zone.

API IP Access Restriction

Client admin can configure the IPs that are allowed to access the Webex Engage APIs.

Auto Logout Settings

By default, all teams within a tenant follow the auto log out duration set at the team level. However, client admins can override this behaviour and enable all teams to follow a single auto log out duration by turning ON Override Team Settings toggle.



  • The administrative users (client admins and group admins) will always inherit the tenant level auto log out settings configured by the client admin. This is irrespective of the team level auto log out settings configured by the team managers.
  • The user will not be logged out of the application even after the configured period of inactivity if they are on the Client Admin or Customer Care Console dashboards.

Configure Customer ID

Client admin can define the character type (Numeric/Alphanumeric) and maximum character limit for Customer ID field within a tenant.


Enable Emojis on Customer Care Console

Client admin can use this toggle button to enable or disable emojis on the channels supported by Webex Engage application. These emojis are Unicode based and will render as per the browser’s capabilities. The admins can enable/disable default emojis. The admins can click on an emoji to disable it and the emoji will be greyed out. The admins can click on the greyed out emoji to enable it. The admins can add new emojis to the default list from the emoji list.




Hover on an emoji to view the emoji name.

  • The users using Windows OS version 10 and below should download and install Segoe UI Emoji and Segoe UI Symbol font styles to render emojis seamlessly. This method also holds good if emojis are not rendering properly in any of the OS versions.
