  1. Get active or logged-in wordpress username or names automatically

    About the tawk.to plugin for WordPress, I believe it would be impressive to have the names or usernames of logged on users updated automatically when they are online to use the tawk.to app to reach administrators.

    That's what they expect and that's what we expect too. Having to make everyone type in their names or usernames for identification every time they use their mobile phones, desktop browser, incognito mode or change to a totally new browser is rather inconvenient.

    To All Our Valued Users,

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

    We currently don’t have an auto log-in or auto-save feature to automatically log in users on their WordPress sites using the tawk.to plug-in.

    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.

    Should you have any 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. Encrypt messages to Ticket Forwarding Email

    When sending an email to the message system YOURCODE@tickets.tawk.to the emails are not encrypted.
    This represents a significant security risk for sensitive customer data

    To All Our Valued Users,

    Thank you for choosing tawk.to

    As per our developer, we transmit our emails through TLS secure channels if the receiving party supports these channels.

  3. Advanced departments

    Department function improvements:

    ​1. Chats can be assigned to chosen Department.
    Today all Agents, including those who are not assigned there, can see the incoming chats.
    It could be nice to set a parameter to avoid the visibility of all incoming chats and notifications for every department.
    The goal is to include a widget in a site page where customers can ask support only to a specific department.

    (​Currently, there is no setup to hide chats from some Departments.
    and all agent from all departments can be notified if nobobody answers. just consider to make this an option)

  4. Knowledge Base - Duplicate Article / Template Article

    To keep a consistent article layout throughout our Knowledge Base it would be great to have an option to select an article and click "Duplicate Article" which would then create a new draft version of the selected article.

    Alternatively save an article as a Template and have the option to create a "New Article from Template".

  7. Knowledge Base - backup feature

    Currently Tawk's KB is not supported with an option to backup all articles & categories. Considering if a user want to migrate the KB to other platform which has more features, then it might be good to have an option to backup all KB data to be migrated.

  9. Have an configuration option to hide the widget at the beginning and show it only when there is an ongoing chat

    We have an ionic app, but we dont want the widget visible always. We have an option in the menu that programatically maximize the chat if the client want to chat with us.

    So, the widget would not be visible all the time, only when the user opens the chat from the menu, then the widget appears (so the user can see the badge for new messages we reply) and when the chat session is finished, we hide the widget again.

    That's important because in a mobile device we need to use the space in a very smart way, and…

    To All Our Valued Users,

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

    You can only hide your chat widget by setting the following conditions:

    1. Hide widget when offline

    This makes the chat widget invisible when you have no agents online and are not ready to accept chats.

    2. Hide widget on load

    This makes the chat widget invisible when a visitor navigates to your site.

    This is really only useful if you’re launching the widget another way — for example, with a text link. Otherwise, the visitor will not be able to view or use the chat.

    Helpful link: https://help.tawk.to/article/change-how-the-widget-behaves-on-your-site

    3. Ban specific visitors/locations (e.g. Russia)

    Restricting specific visitors from a location will hide the chat widget.

  11. Allow export of Knowledge hub so we can easily translate it

    We have spent a lot of time using the Knowledge hub and build up quite a library but now our export teams want a version. The problem is there is no clear view of all the data so export to at least get it out and translate it would be a big help.

    To All Our Valued Users,

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

    I would suggest creating a Basic – Page Notification Trigger.

    This Trigger will only fire at a SPECIFIC page and will only start counting down the Delay once a visitor makes it to the URL.

    You can create one as follows:

    1. Select Administration (Click the gear in the left-hand menu) > Trigger > Add Trigger
    2. Select Trigger Type > Basic – Page Notification
    3. Add a Trigger name, Agent’s Name and select an image.
    4. Select the time Delay. You have the option to change it to NO DELAY (message fires instantly) or choose a delay ranging from 10 seconds up to an hour.
    5. Enter your SPECIFIC WEB URL.
    6. Under Trigger Message > Create a message asking for your visitor’s Name, Address, Zip Code, etc.

    (Example: Hi, thank…

  14. Try to incorporate an easier way to send the message.

    Feedback I am getting shows visitors are confused about how to send the message from the chat window. At present only by clicking return. This is especially a problem on mobile and tablet devices where hitting return is not so easy. Some for instance are confusing the close cross button with a send button and just exiting by accident while trying to send. It would be great if an obvious send arrow could appear when typing or something similar.

    To All Our Valued Users,

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

    Our SEND ICON (arrow icon beside a smiley) on the chat widget is currently available on mobile devices only — not on the desktop.

    Our engineers are working towards this enhanced feature and it will be available on both mobile and desktop very soon!

    We will post updates once this feature has been implemented.

  15. Customize Invite Email

    It would be nice if you can allow admins to customize the invite email, or maybe just a part of it where we can add the logo of the Event/Company we are working with.

    It would be very beneficial if Admin's could opt in to receive an email notification when someone rates a chat with us either Positive/Negative. If this were possible, it would be great if the email would list who the student/customer was and as well as the 'agent' that assisted them.

    This is a great idea! Customer ratings are essential to all businesses. Getting notifications for both positive and negative feedback can speed up the process of providing solutions to customers.

  18. Make multi language triggers possible

    I wonder how to set triggers in different languages. As "Kevin" from the Support-Team respond, there is not such a feature.. .so here is the Request for it :)

    I have an nextJS app. If I switch from English-Language to German-Language (or any other one) - that will not change the URL of my requested page, because it is only an internal flag (javascript variable).

    This triggers an JS-Script which displays now the other language-content.

    So what we need is also some kind of JS-Trigger or Flag, that can be send to Tawk.io which indicate that the chat-script should show…
