    To All Our Valued Users,

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

    Great news! We have just released a major update to our chat widget. See our latest release here: https://www.tawk.to/category/updates/

    You can now enjoy the chat widget’s new look and features. This includes showing the visitor’s most recent conversation.

    To learn how to add the “Previous Conversation” card to your chat widget, 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!

  2. Integrate Facebook Messenger, Whatsapp, Telegram and more

    This will allow us to respond not only messages coming from the live chat but also from our facebook pages. Being able to answer e-mails and other chat services such as telegram would also be great! This will save us a ton of time because it allows us to manage all our visitor's messages coming from many different sources in a single place.

    To All Our Valued Users,

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

    We took note of your feedback and integrations with 3rd party apps are currently underworks.

    Rest assured that our engineers are looking into it and we will update you as soon as it is implemented.

  3. Allow users to opt-out (to comply with GDPR)

    While reviewing the new GDPR compliancy tools, I noticed that while visitors can opt-in or out on first visit, there is no way for visitors to opt-out after they've already opted in.

    As per the Information Commissioner's Office's Guidelines ( https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/guide-to-the-general-data-protection-regulation-gdpr/lawful-basis-for-processing/consent/#ib1 ), we need to be able to provide a way for users to withdraw consent after they've given it.

    "The GDPR gives a specific right to withdraw consent. You need to tell people about their right to withdraw, and offer them easy ways to withdraw consent at any time."

    As it stands at the moment, the widget may not…

  4. push notifications for new emails, tickets

    Push notifications to the app when a new email has arrived. The same way that we get a notification when a new chat comes in...
    We just noticed that we had 56 new emails inside Tawkto. But due to no push notifications to the ios app they were unattended...

  5. Customize widget colors, bubble for online/offline status

    The color of the chat widget is currently green (or other color chosen in dashboard) whether you are online or not.
    I would like the widget icon/color to be red instead of green when the chat is in offline status.

    The Bubble Chat only appears when the widget is online. We have our Widget on a schedule and would love to have the bubble when the widget is offline too.
    Can bubbles also change the name into " Click Here" in order to remind the visitors that he can leave offline message for us.

    To All Our Valued Users,

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

    It’s easy to completely customize the design of your chat widget.

    The widget color can be changed to your preference. To learn more on how to change the appearance of your chat widget, visit this link:

    https://help.tawk.to/article/changing-the-appearance-of-the-chat-widget

    The ‘Hide widget when offline’ setting is off by default in your Dashboard. This means the chat widget is still visible even when you are offline.

    Learn more about customizing your widget’s behavior here: https://help.tawk.to/article/change-how-the-widget-behaves-on-your-site

    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!

  7. Filter out own people (by IP or name) from monitoring

    We have a lot of people in our company that use the website while building new features. I see all of these on the monitoring board which is noise when I want to see the real visitors.

    I'd like to filter them out.

    I'd suggest to filter them out either
    - by using the IP address (which is proably the easiest)
    or
    - by name (everyone needs to enter a name and then I add them to a group 'own people' and then they are filtered out)

    To All Our Valued Users,

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

    You may try the following suggestions to identify/limit your agents under the ‘Monitoring’ section:

    To identify whether the visitor is your actual user or your agent, you can follow the steps below:

    1. Ask your agents to visit your website and initiate a test chat.
    2. Join the test chat.
    3. In the top right section of your active chat window, select the ‘Details’ section (tab).
    4. Rename the long auto-generated IP Address to your agent’s name. You can also add their email address.
    5. Save all settings.

    The next time your agent visits your website, their name will now appear under the ‘Monitoring’ section.

    You can ban the IP Addresses of all admin and agents. Once banned, the widget will be hidden and will not be visible in the monitoring section.

    Visit this…

  8. Export Ticket History

    Would be great to be able to export all of the ticket history to a usable file such as CSV or JSON to be used for other purposes.

    For instance one of our clients wants to be able to review the tickets their staff has opened and currently we have no way to do this, without hours of copy/paste

  9. Agent permissions

    Add permissions so that agent couldnt ban / ignore the user. And that the "Admins" could sellect the permissions for them :)

    Ideas from comments:
    - Option to choose if Agent should get offline messages or not;
    - Option for unbanning people by agents;
    - Who can only see reports for a particular website;
    - Who can and can't see the analytics;
    - Who can whisper;
    - Who can edit global shortcuts;
    - Disable "+Add" property;
    - Forbid users to rename/create aliases;
    - Another agent shouldn't see other agent conversations;
    - Select countries to which agent is restricted to answer…

    Hi there dear tawker,

    We are currently planning on developing granular permissions that will solve this problem.

    Hope this will be solved in the near future.

  10. Enable queue

    Hello,
    A queue could be nice, because if you have many people on the livechat, and only are one agent online, then a queue could be good to have. For exempel, when 6 users write to me, at the same time, I can't answer them all at the time. So a queue system could be very good! Exempel: You are number 6 in the queue. Or your own custom message.

    To All Our Valued Users,

    We thank you and appreciate the patience and continued support over the years.

    As per our development team, we are waiting to roll out a huge update to the architecture of the software in order for this feature to release. As you can appreciate, unfortunately, things don’t always go to plan, and other product launches need to be prioritized for the sake of progress.

    Rest assured, this has already been raised and the update is currently in progress. We will post updates once the feature has been approved and implemented.

  11. Chatbox Redesign

    I was thinking about how all of the other big named paid chat scripts are redesigning there chatboxes, and they have since increased in users. For instance, Intercom reported having almost 1,000 new users the day they released a new chatbox design. Crisp just released their new chatbox design (looks like Intercom's), and they are boosting in users. I would just like something a little fresh and new.

    Ho there Michael,

    Thank you for the submission. We will be starting to work on this quite soon as we finish the design for our new mobile apps.

    Be patient as we are a small team. (:

  12. Integrate with Shopify more

    I've used another chat app that also integrated with Shopify. They had a really useful feature that shows what a visitor has in their cart.
    They also had the option to trigger a chat window when a visitor would abandon their cart (so cart > checkout > cart = chat window popup).

    It would also be great to see a sales history of some sort, so you can improvise offering discount codes without having to look up visitors in Shopify.

  13. Support Wordpress WPML (translation plugin) so that the right chat language shows

    To All Our Valued Users,

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

    At the moment, we don’t have a direct Chat transfer to another agent. Rest assured that this feature is currently planned and our engineers are working towards its completion. The software upgrade will be posted as soon as it is implemented.

  16. Allow integration with Google Analytics

    It would be great if there was a way to optionally bind Google Analytics events to opening the live chat button, and ideally leaving an offline message as well. We like to track as many site interactions as we can, but not sure how I can bind any events to button clicks as there's an iframe container, so it would have to fire on your end.

    To All Our Valued Users,

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

    We currently don’t have an integration with Google Analytics.

    We do, however, have our Google Adwords Tracking integration.

    Google Conversion tracking can help you see how effectively your ad clicks lead to valuable customer interaction with tawk.to.

    This article explains how to create a conversion action to track visitor engagement with the widget. You can find the sample code and tutorial here: https://docs.tawk.help/article/google-adwords-tracking

    Note: this code example tracks a new chat as a conversion. If you would like the conversion to occur on some other metric, please refer to our Javascript API: https://help.tawk.to/article/google-adwords-tracking

  17. Extraction of customer name for shortcuts: example: Hello %visitor.name%, My name is.....

    it would be useful to have a the ability to create a Greeting/Hello shortcut with a feature such as %visitor.name% so end users receive a more personalised experience... it might also be useful to enable tawk.to attendees to include %agent.name% which would automatically extract the attendees name and add it to the personalised message

  18. Make it possible to use more than one widget on the same web page.

    I would like to use one widget as a contact form, the other for chat. Some people would rather send email than chat, and I would like to be able to offer both. But I'm told 2 widgets would conflict with each other. I like the look of Tawk.to and would like to have the consistency of design rather than using another service to generate the contact form.

    Hi there Mary,

    You are correct that 2 Widgets would conflict each other. You can setup different departments for chat and contact and they will show up in different colors so the right people can answer, based on the color of the conversation.

    We will be working on routing soon which will ring the conversation only for available Agents in the specific department.

    Hope this answers your request.

  20. Activate/Deactivate Sleep Mode on Monitoring Tab / Change Information Table Size

    The new Monitor feature could be good, but with the current acitvate (and can not be deactivated) Sleep Mode, the new feature would be destroyed. Monitoring means: Sit and See! So please let the customer the choice if the activate the sleed mode or not.

    An other needed fix is to make the informations line/tables on the Monitorinside flexibel and resizable. Some Pages have long URL or Site Title and on Monitor with more than 1366x768 Pixel) theres enough space on the right side available, so that it must be possible that the customer can resize the information lines.
