It's time to create and configure your first queue. The Setup First Queue Guide will walk you through how to get Chime ready to be used as a service desk application.Setup First Queue Guide (pdf)
Here are three of the guides that we think will help you out the most when you have first set up a queue and want to know what to do next.
Who needs to be involved:
Chime Admin, Teams Administrator, optional: Branding/logo
Once you have Chime set up, you will want to start branding Chime with your logos instead of the default Instant-Tech logos provided out-of-the-box. In this guide we cover all of the steps to getting your Teams client branded so Guests will know exactly how to contact the helpdesk.

Once you have set up a Queue in Chime, you will need to have people available to accept chat sessions and help out incoming Guests. The following guide is gives a very comprehensive walkthrough of all of the Agent Features we have available in Chime and is a great start to getting your help desk/service desk up and running.Chime Agent Training Guide (pdf)
Before a chat session gets connected to an Agent, you may want to ask your Guest some additional questions about their problem, see if they have a prefered language they would like to get help in, connect them to a knowledgebase that might be able to solve their issue before getting connected to a live agent, or have them chat with a bot and see if that can help resolve their issue.
In Chime we can bundle all of these features into a pre-chat flow we like to call an Interview. The guide here covers all of the cool features you can use to set up an interview and how to make the pre-chat experience better for Guests coming into your Queue.Chime Interview Guide (pdf)
Over the lifetime of Chime for Teams we have created many guides on our Instant-Tech Public Wiki. We would like to share some of the guides that we think would help get your Chime instance Production-Ready:
