Assign Department(s) to specific landing pages
The ability to assign departments to specific pages or sections of the website, This way specific users can talk to the correct department based on landing page
To All Our Valued Users, Thank you for choosing tawk.to and for reaching out. We currently don't have a feature for assigning Departments to specific landing pages. Here’s how the department function works in the tawk.to chat:
1. Chats can be assigned to departments. All Agents, including those who are not assigned to a chat, can see the incoming chats. However, only those who are assigned to the department will get a notification.
2. This allows for easy chat take-over, especially if the transfer is from one department to another.
In departments, other agents only hear the notification sounds if there are no agents currently online in the department the visitor has selected. So the only time it rings for all agents is when a department is selected that has no agents currently online. This is to prevent the chat from going unanswered.
4. Currently, there is no feature allowing chats to be hidden from other departments. To learn more, visit this link: https://help.tawk.to/article/creating-and-managing-departments We have taken note of your suggestion and will post updates once the feature has been approved and implemented. If you have any other questions, require assistance, or just want to talk to someone at tawk.to, here is our calendar link: https://calendly.com/tawk-to-support/tawk-to-customer-support. We're happy to help!
i need the same feature.
My visitors are authenticated and i need that can chat with "only parts of agents" -> group1 [agent1, agent2, agent3]
can we set "department" with jsAPI ? or do we need set multiple "properties" with différents agents ?
i think, missed somethings...

When creating a new widget we are given options for title and it's settings. I would like a multi-select option to choose which departments that widget is for. If no agents from that department are online, the widget could be hidden.
Then I would just have custom widget embed codes for each of the different departments on my website.

I want specific pages of the site to only have the chat window show if someone from a specific department is online.
For example, if I have a landing page for Department A would only show the chat popup if there was a chat operator from Department A online.
s1.departmentRestriction=('Department A','Department C');
Which would then only show the chat option pop-up only when someone from that department was online.
Ideally you would also add an option under "Widget Settings" next where you have "Hide widget when offline" but instead have "Hide widget when defined departments are offline" and it would use the extra s1 tag above to define those departments in the widget itself.
I could just create separate companies for each department.
Hi. Please assist by creating a functionality that allows departments with their respective chat agents to only receive communication in specified landing pages only.
I fully agree with this idea. It is crucial.
Since we have a feature where user / visitor is selecting a department before chat, it would be nice could automatically redirect user to a specific department based on our database of users bear in mind we know all our visitor as they are private not public or anonymous visitor.
