How are messages routed when multiple agents are online?SOLVE

If I have 2 sales reps logged into chat and set to online at the same time, which one recieves notifications of new chat's?
I don't want to use the route to owner function because i'm guessing 80% of our users are not already in our CRM and I still want those users to be able to speak to someone rather than being routed to the offline message which is how i understood the message routing to work.

Under Message Settings there is a section in the left sidebar menu called Message Routing.
Here you can decide whether you'd like the Rotate to owner setting to be turned on or off. With this feature enabled, messages will be routed to known contacts' owners if the owner is online, emailed to the owner if they are offline, and routed to any team member who is online if the visitor is not owned.
With this feature disabled, incoming chats are routed in a round-robin fashion to any rep who is online at that time.
Here you can also set your Offline fallback user from the dropdown menu. This user will receive messages via email if there are no team members online when a visitor sends a message.
I hope the above helps to answer your question - let me know if I can be of any further help!
