  1. Minimize Chat Widget Icons after 60 seconds... If a visitor doesn't need help in the first 60-90 seconds, they won't need help, so disappear

    If a visitor to my streaming site doesn't need help with in the first 60-90 seconds of visiting the site, they likely won't need help,
    So I want big buttons when the page loads, but want to minimize to tiny icons, or disappear completely after 60-90 seconds. Thanks

  2. Allow Sections in Knowledge Base

    Allow Sections in Knowledge Base

    So at the movement there is no option to create sections in knowledge base for example, if we are a school we would need a knowledge base for Teachers and Students and may be also for Parents.

    If there is a section toggle that would allow to toggle between sections the teachers would jump to their toggle option and look at their Knowledge base, and students on theirs and parent on theirs.

    Cause at the moment the only way we can separate is categories which is not a good option when dealing with 3 types…

  4. Chat Widget Position Problem

    We want to take chat widget position freely, be able to move in less areas like 20-30 pixel. We have footer in our website and the footer is just closing the chat widget. Also we do not want to just put it on the middle of the page. If you could get back to us about this topic we would be happy and we can find onether solution to that problem,

    Thank you so much!

  5. Include a link to tawk.to dashboard from email notification

    When receiving a notification mail for an offline message sent,

    include a link to the dashboard for easy access to the ticket by simply clicking on the link

    There are no security implications involved because if the person is not logged in, just prompt them to log in.

    This feature will greatly help as there is no need to manually access tawk.to page from a browser.

    Simple feature but save a lot of time. Please consider.

  9. Highlight the chat button when it is focused via tabbing

    Hello,

    To make the chat widget more accessible, it would be nice if the chat widget button would become highlighted with a color of suitable contrast when the button becomes focused. My thoughts are that this could be an additional color option in the widget customization window. This should happen whenever the widget button becomes focused, through tabbing or other methods.

    Thanks,
    Will

  11. Knowledge base images pop up in modal window when clicked

    Images uploaded to the KB can often be blurry or undersized. I would suggest improving the image quality, but also allow the images to show in a larger modal popup when clicked.

  12. Remove "Was this article helpful?" from chat widget if disabled in KB settings

    When disabling "Receive Feedback on Articles" in the KB settings, it removes the "thumbs up/down" from the KB, however it leaves it in the chat widget article.

    If disabling this feature, it should disable in both locations, not one.

    Hi,

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

    The purpose of the ticketing system is to converse with customers via email.

    An email address is required for the system to work.

    Alternatively, you can enter your own support email in the details section to activate the ticketing system internally.

    Hi,

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

    Each chat that’s converted to a ticket has a chat transcript attached to it.

    Select the ‘Click to view’ option to view the chat transcript.

    We currently don’t have a toggle switch for making an automated conversion.

    We don’t have a feature for sending a file in a JSON format for a Webhook’ ticket created’ event.

  20. to make chats open and available to send msg from the agent side and close them manually

    Well I have users in my tech support requesting for problem resolvings but when the user leaves the site for a while it closes the chat session and agents cant reach the user back. in my case the users category are those who doesnt ahve any idea on how to use email., so that we cant reach them via email. and would be great if U could make chat sessions static,e.g. whenever user goes back to the site he can see the new messages form the agent from the previous conversation
