Bot to human handoff through Conversation Routing rules
If you have assigned a conversation to bots. The bot to human handoff will happen in this manner:

- We will assign the conversation to the default agent if Notify everybody is selected in agent routing rules.
- We will assign the conversation to the agent present in the conversation for Automatic assignment.
- Welcome message and away message will not come.
- Any agent can take over the conversation from the bot by clicking the take over from bot button.

Improvements in real-time Conversation section updates
Previously, only conversations which were “Assigned to Me” were updating in real-time. Say, if a conversation is assigned to an agent Gandalf, it was not getting updated in real-time for another agent, Saruman. Saruman had to refresh his Dashboard for updates.
Now, it is all real-time, even if the conversation is assigned to any other agent. This helps improve team collaboration.
