Other messaging tools capture the end user's IP address immediately when they initiate a conversation with a representative. This is a valuable piece of information the ensures that the customer has the best experience possible.
There are many situations where the location of a customer will determine how the conversation is handled (which representative should handle the message, which products are available for a customer in that location or whether they need to purchase through a distributor, and so on and so forth).
Since HubSpot does capture IP addresses in other parts of the platform it seems like a simple ask for this to be extended to include the Messaging tool.
@Qt We do store that for visitors as well on the contact record, which is avail when they are visitors. We will be working to bring this into the inbox in the future. I would love to hear more about how your team manages their assignment? Do they do that manually?
@USC-Steve The team is also working on bringing what we are calling "presence" into the inbox as well in the future. That will basically be an indicator if they are still on your site or if they have left. Keep an eye out for that announcement!
Hi all- We currently are storing the IP geolocation for a chat on the contact under the IP properties. We will be doing work in the future to bring this information into the inbox for the agents to be able to leverage while chatting. We will post an update when we have more details on this work in the next couple months.
