  1. Have the avaibility to change GMT timezone for chat transcript email

    When we receive email notification after a chat, the time is GMT+0. It will be great to setup the widget with the right GMT time to send transcript with the good time zone.

    To All Our Valued Users,

    Thank you for choosing tawk.to and for sharing your challenge here.

    Our chat transcript email is currently set to display the GMT 0 timezone.

    Your request has been acknowledged and updates will be posted once the feature has been approved and implemented.

    Let me know if you have any other questions, require assistance, or just want to talk to someone at tawk.to. Here is a link to my calendar: https://calendly.com/siennarubio/30min. I’d be happy to help!

  2. Desktop Notification configuration

    Desktop notification should be configurable.
    1>Length of time on screen should be adjustable.
    2>Option to keep on screen until answered.
    3>Re-notify agent when chat resumes from existing visitor instead of only once per session.
    4>Re-notify of continuing chat when agent has multiple chats going.

    Remember we all have other things (jobs) to do beside staring at the Tawk Dashboard.

  3. Provide an option to change the Client Notification Sound

    Provide an option to change the Client Notification Sound when the agent reply's. currently it have a sound just like a keyboard sound . it may not be audible to the clients. so it is better to change the client notification sound to a good tone. eg: facebook notification tone, hike notification tone,etc

    To All Our Valued Users,

    Thank you for choosing tawk.to and for reaching out.

    At this stage, we currently don’t have the option to change the client/visitor’s notification sound.

    We’re continuing to build out our Messaging product, and new updates will be released soon.

    We’ve acknowledged your request and have forwarded it to the dev team. They will work with this suggestion and will add the feature in due course.

    If you have any other questions, require assistance, or just want to talk to someone at tawk.to, here is a link to my calendar: https://calendly.com/siennarubio/30min. I’d be happy to help!

    To All Our Valued Users,

    Thank you for choosing tawk.to and for sharing your challenge here.

    At the moment, closing the active chat window will not end the chat. It will, however, exit the agent from the chat session. Only the end-user can end the chat session.

    For multiple chats, I recommend setting the chat window to a two-chat view. You can do this by sliding the bar icon located at the top area of your active chat.

    You can join up to 4-6 chats at the same time. By setting up 2 views, you will be able to answer 2 chats at a time. You can navigate the remaining chats by clicking over the ‘Next’ arrow option.

  5. display Visitor's State in addition to the Country

    I'm wondering if there are any plans for improving the Visitor's location that's being displayed. I'm currently in the US and we're only able to see the City where the Visitor is from and not the State so it makes things a little hard to gauge and I'm not able to set up an advanced trigger for those users.

    Something like this would be very helpful, thank you!

    To All Our Valued Users,

    Thank you for choosing tawk.to and for reaching out.

    At this time, the details in the Monitoring section do not include the state in which the visitor is located.

    We have taken note of your suggestion and will post updates once the feature has been approved and implemented.

  6. Let only the administrator see what everybody is chatting, not the entire sales team.

    I have just started using tawk.to in one of my client's website. Although I have just noticed that my whole sales team sees what everybody is chatting. It would be perfect if only the administrator saw other people's conversation. Would that be possible? Thank you.

    To All Our Valued Users,

    Thank you for choosing tawk.to and for sharing your ideas with us.

    We currently don’t have an option for hiding chats from other agents or departments.

    All chats can be viewed by all members of a property.

    Your request has been acknowledged and updates will be posted once the feature has been approved and implemented.

  7. Allow departments to be sorted, reordered

    Currently if the department selector is included in the pre-chat form, the departments are sorted by the order in which they were created.

    It would be much better if we could control the order. Alphabetical wouldn't work as that's not always the case so it would make sense to just be able to drag the items of the departments page into the order we wanted.

  8. Allow to customize the mobile widget text

    Some mobile users get confused when they see 'Chat' text on the widget and instead of thinking it's support chat they think it's websites internal messaging system.
    It would be nice if we were able to customize it to say 'Support Chat' or 'Need help?' or something along those lines.

    To All Our Valued Users,

    Thank you for choosing tawk.to and for sharing your question here.

    We currently do not have an attention grabber for mobile. The widget will appear as either a bubble or a rectangular icon to visitors accessing your website with a mobile device.

    The word “Chat” in the rectangular widget can not be modified.

    Your request has been acknowledged and updates will be posted once the feature has been approved and implemented.

  11. Remove IP associated cookies when chat ends. Give visitors 'public computer' option which automatically removes chat history and data

    If visitors are using a public computer, removing cookies from the computer alone is not removing visitor personal data as it is associated with IP address for various amounts of time causing a breach of data protection.

    Visitors do not always know about 'go incognito' option which seems to be the solution and therefore are putting personal information at risk without knowing.

    There should be an option for client to choose 'public computer' and 'personal device' and explanation that by choosing personal device their personal information may be available to other computer users.

  12. API method to create the initial message

    A new API method to fill the text input with a premade message, passed as a argument. Like openDialog('Hello, I need help with me dashboard'), and the input field would have 'Hello, I need help with me dashboard'

  13. Windows Auto Login on Start

    Right now every time I start my computer up I have to login and even if I click remember me, it doesn't stay logged in. It would be nice to be able to start it and have it save my login and auto log me in and set me as available when it starts unless I actually log out.

    Other software such as skype keeps you logged in automatically until you physically log out of that program. One less thing to remember to do.

  15. Enable tickets created via email to use the "reply-to" address for ticket replies

    I currently have an issue where I'm trying to integrate an online contact form with tawk.to messages/tickets. The form gets sent from a default wordpress email address with the customer's email address passed through as the "reply-to" address. Tawk doesn't detect the reply-to address. Instead, it used the sender address. This makes it impossible to actually reply to tickets because tawk doesn't detect the right reply address.

    Hi there David,

    Yes, it won’t work as you are trying to use the ticketing system in a way that it’s not supposed to be used yet.
    We have had discussions that Visitors should be able to create tickets as well as Agents do but currently we only support Agents creating tickets.

    We’re thinking about this but are not sure when development on this will start, though.

  16. Please allow custom timezones for offline messages

    It's set to GMT+0 but it would be nice is it could be set to different time zones so on first glance we could see when they tried to contact

  17. Ability to disable an agent going into IDLE

    We talk daily with more then 5 visitors on our website. Our talks, involve more than 6 hours of chatting. At some point the agent or the visitor might take a break or not say anything for a long period of time. It would be great if we could disable the IDLE feature because that is causing our chats to be interrupted and we as agents sometime can not rejoin the chats if the visitor isn't paying attention to the chat widget.

  18. Set time for automatic ending of a chat

    I think after a set amount of time a visitor does not reply (you can set the time) it should allow for the chat to be automatically ended, with some sort of message just before it ends like "Thank you for chatting, due to no reply the chat has been ended but feel free to open it up again if you need more assistance" But this message should be customizable.

  19. Display trigger on mobile and tablet not only in fullscreen mode.

    The Idea is to correclty display the widget window in mobile and tablet. The best solution will be to see a small window, because actually it automatically go fullscreen. Because if you use some triggers, in tablet and mobile version they are too much invasive.

  20. Blocking agent-to-agent chat

    The office that we are setting this up for does not allow their employees to chat online with each other. The agent-to-agent feature of your program would violate this rule.

    Is there a plan to place a block on agent-to-agent chats if required?

    Thanks!
