  1. Customizing the post-chat experience.

    The content of the "your chat has ended" segment should be fully editable. It currently violates several of my property style guidelines and there's nothing I can do about it.

    Problems:

    The icon color is wrong.
    The text is written in plural. (There is no "us" in my studio)
    The text contains a typographic error that cannot be corrected.

    We should be able to:

    Remove this entire segment of the CX loop if desired.

    Change the icon color.

    Remove the icon.

    Edit the heading text.

    Edit the body text.

    To All Our Valued Users,

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

    At this stage, we don’t have a feature to modify ‘your chat has ended’, or the option to edit the text color.

    Rest assured, your suggestion has been submitted to our engineers. We will post updates once the feature has been approved and implemented.

  2. Add chat already open message on mobile

    I think the current chat behaviour on mobile phones is a bit confusing for users. Currently, on a mobile device, the chat is open in a new tab. Although I think it would be clearer to have it open as a (maximized) pop. I see you had such a feature already but removed it again.

    To All Our Valued Users,

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

    This how the chat widget behaves on a mobile device:

    1. If the chat widget is configured as a POPOUT, the chat widget will open in a separate tab purely for a chat.

    Visitors will have to come back to the main tab if they wish to navigate your website.

    2. If the chat widget is configured to MAXIMIZE, the chat widget will open within the current tab and the chat widget will follow the visitor as they navigate your website.

    It will notify the visitor if there is an unread message in the same way it would for a text message on a mobile phone — a little red 1 or 2 appears on the widget.

    To configure the chat widget behaviour, do the following:

    1. Click the Administration Tab
    2. Select Chat…

  5. Allow a trigger to be created when a chat is initiated

    When a customer starts the chat after completing the pre-chat form, it would be a good idea to have a trigger to auto respond.

    This lets the customer know that the chat has been initiated our end.

    To All Our Valued Users,

    Thank you for choosing tawk.to and for taking the time to provide us with your feedback.

    Definitely! You can create a trigger that fires after your visitor fills in the form. I have personally tested these advanced trigger settings and the trigger successfully fires with the message I’vecreated. (Example: “Hi, Thank you for reaching out”)

    You can do as follows:
    1. Select Administration Section > Trigger > Add Trigger

    2. Select Trigger Type > Advanced

    3. Type the Trigger Name and Description

    4. Under CONDITION > When a visitor sends a chat message

    5. Under CHECK > All of the following conditions 1. Account Status > Equals > Online

    6. Under ACTIONS > Send message to visitor

    7. Type the agent’s name and your message
    (This is where you can input a message letting your customer know that the chat has been initiated.)

    I hope…

  6. Drilldown of Neutral / Negative chats / Positive Chats

    It would be a good idea when pulling the chats report that we could drill down into the specific chats that were rated Negative/ Positive or not at all.

    This is an integral part of driving conversion rates and in turn customer satisfaction.

    This is Sienna from tawk.to. Thank you for reaching out.

    We couldn’t agree more that customer feedback is an integral part of providing excellent customer service.

    Thank you for taking the time to share your ideas here.

    At this stage, we don’t have the functionality to download detailed reports of feedback.

    Our developers are continuing to build out our messaging product. We’ve acknowledged your request and have forwarded it to the dev team.

    We will post updates once the feature has been approved and implemented.

    To All Our Valued Users,

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

    We currently don’t have a feature that will automatically include your customer’s name in the message.

    An alternative way to capture your customer’s details is to use the Pre-Chat form.

    The form will require the visitor to fill in the fields such as their name and email address, a phone number and location.

    Once you have retrieved your customer’s information, you can send them a personalized message.

    You can even create shortcuts for repetitive replies and add their name before sending the message.

    These canned responses can be used while chatting with visitors. They save you time and make sure your responses are accurate and consistent. They also ensure spelling and grammar are correct.

    Please note: The Pre-Chat form can act as a deterrent to some visitors and in turn reduce your engagement rate. Statistically, using…

  8. 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. Add knowledge base functionality to API

    It would be a great addition to allow opening knowledge base categories & articles in the chat window through the Tawk javascript API.

    This way we can integrate the Tawk package into our software even more seamlessly.

    To All Our Valued Users,

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

    Great news! We have just released a major update to our chat widget.

    See our latest release here: https://www.tawk.to/category/updates/

    This new update will answer your concern about allowing your users to open the Knowledge Base categories and articles within the chat widget.

    The “Widget Card” feature will let you add a search bar, highlight an article or show an article list.

    To learn more about how to customize the Widget Cards, visit this link: https://help.tawk.to/article/customizing-the-widget-header-and-body-cards

    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!

  10. typescript support

    It would be awesome to have at least some TypeScript Types or TypeScript Interfaces.

    I created a tawk Interface to make it easier for my colleagues to avoid mistakes while using the Tawk JavaScript api.

    interface TawkApiInterface {
    
    setAttributes: (attributes : { [key : string] : any }, callback ?: () => any) => any;
    endChat: () => any;
    getStatus: () => any;
    …and so on
    }

    So i can use it like this:

    const tawkApi : TawkApiInterface = (window as any).Tawk_API;
    

    So i get an error in my code editor when i try to use it like this:

    To All Our Valued Users,

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

    As per our developer, our documentation states that our API functions accept two params, and the second is a callback function, so it needs to be a function.

    I hope this addresses your concern.

  12. An option to do a chat form AFTER a chat has started - instead of PRE CHAT

    We have realized we lose a LOT of chat requests because people do not want to give the email and name prior to starting a conversation. We disable the pre chat form and we get twice or 3x the amount of live chats but now we do not have the customers information. I have noticed MANY other chat clients use a feature where you can start talking - then they have a section on top or in the chat for the customer to add their email or name if they want to. The pre chat form scares off a lot…

    To All Our Valued Users,

    Thank you for choosing tawk.to and for taking the time to provide us with your feedback and suggestions.

    We value your input and we thank you for the continued support toward our product.

    In relation to your concern, currently, we don’t have the feature where the user can input their details while in an active chat.

    However, I suggest using the shortcut feature to create relevant and useful canned responses. This will assist you to retrieve their details while your agents are on chats.

  13. Badge icons

    Please add badge icons to IOS and Android devices as this feature should be traditionally native on most apps.

    I am posting a new post as the last one was posted 2 years ago and it does not seem to be resolved.

    A lot of online companies use mobile devices to do majority of work nowadays. This is a incredibly important feature as no body will know if they have messages outstanding without a badge notification.

    Thanks

    Please add a setting to allow the phone app to stay signed in.

  19. 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.
