Conversation transcripts are now sent to all agent participating in a chat conversation.  For example, if a chat was answered by a ContactAtOnce Chat Receptionists Agent and then forwarded back to the dealership, apartment community, etc., both agents would receive a copy of the transcript as opposed to just the answering agent receiving the transcript.
