This section describes basics of how to chat with your website visitors.

Joining a chat

To start chatting with a visitor, click the Monitor section on the Dashboard left sidebar and pick a Conversation your're interested in. Click on the Join To Chat button and then click on the Open the Chat button and start chatting with the user. The right sidebar shows the essential information about the selected conversation.

Once opened, you'll see your conversation in our Chat section, which will make it it easier for you to have an overview of your existing chats at the left sidebar. While chatting, you'll be able to add images and files and as well as send emojis to your customer. Don't forget you can also add tags to your conversation and use canned responses for a speedier support.

Ending a chat

To close the requests use the “X” button in the right sidebar.

With the left sidebar menu you can:

  • Start a new chat with a simple search field.
