A lead will be created for each visitor who cannot be found from the existing leads in Salesforce account and a task is created for each chat/message of the visitor.
If a visitor is not found by email from the existing leads in your Salesforce account, a new lead will be created for the visitor when a chat ends or an offline message is submitted.
When creating a new lead, the chat/message of the lead is attached as a task under the lead. For an existing lead, each chat/message from the lead will be added as a task.

If a visitor cannot be found by email from the existing contacts in your Salesforce account, a new contact will be created for the visitor when a chat ends or an offline message is submitted.
When creating a new contact, the chat/message of the contact is attached as a task under the lead. For an existing contact, each chat/message from the contact is attached as a case.
