We are looking into the possibility of allowing our agents to manually take an additional chat from the queue at peak times, beyond the max number of chats they are auto-assigned. So if their max auto-assigned is 2 chats, but they see there are chats waiting in the queue and they feel comfortable taking on a 3rd chat, they could manually take 1 more chat from the queue.

I think we could accomplish this with the following settings changes, but I would like confirmation.

Example Role: SA - Sales (2 chats), Chat Permissions
- Change "Max Concurrent Chat Sessions" to 3
- Leave "with Maximum Number of Chats to Auto-Accept" set to 2
- Change "with Unassigned Customer Chats Hidden in Queue" to No

Would this have the desired effect described above?
