  2. 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.

  3. 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…

  4. Pre-Chat Form text mirrors status text

    Currently, when using Pre-Chat Form, your status text is mirrored (Online or Away), but the text below will remain the text you used for your Pre-Chat Form setting. It would be better, in my opinion, for this to also mirror the status text.

    For example: Online! "Fill in the form and one of our agents will assist." / Away! "We're away at the moment, but fill in the form and one of our agents will assist once they return."

    To All Our Valued Users,

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

    At the moment, the Pre-chat form message will stay the same whether you have the Online or Away status on your chat widget.

    The greetings can only be modified separately if you remove the Pre-chat form.

    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.

    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!

    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 route customers directly to a designated agent or Department.

    Alternatively, you can follow these suggestions:

    1. Direct Chat Link/Profile Page

    Your visitor can directly send you a message using your Direct Chat Link/Profile Page.

    This is useful when returning visitors want to reach out to a specific Agent.

    To learn more, visit this link: https://help.tawk.to/article/editing-your-personal-profile-page

    2. Pre-Chat Form

    A Pre-Chat Form requires a visitor to answer a set of questions before a chat commences.

    You can set up a Pre-Chat Form allowing visitors to either request a Department or choose an agent’s name from a list of multiple agents.

    Follow these steps to set up your Pre-Chat Form:

    In your Dashboard, click the Admin gear icon in the left sidebar.
    Select Widget Content.
    Enable the Pre-Chat form…

  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. 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.

  10. 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

  14. 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 question here.

    You can BAN your agent’s IP Address in order to hide the chat when they are browsing your website.

    This will also hide their statistics in your Monitoring section.

    Alternatively, you can save the details associated with your agent’s computer/ IP Address.

    The next time your agent visits your website, their name will now appear under the MONITORING section. They will still be included in the statistics report. However, you can now identify which visitors are your agents and which are your actual visitors.

    To do this, follow the steps below:

    1. Ask your agents to visit your website and let them initiate a test chat.
    2. Join the test chat.
    3. Under the Active Chat window, select the Details section located on the top right side (“i” icon).
    4. Rename the auto-generated IP…

  18. 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)

  19. IBM Watson Chatbot integration with tawk live chat

    Hello,

    I'm sorry if it is not the right "forum" to post this, but I have the following problem. I have already built an IBM Watson Chatbot and I would like to connect it with tawk live chat in case the user needs human support. Is it possible to connect the two APIs IBM Watson supports integration of other chats into their chatbot)? If so, is there any tutorial?

    I am sorry for my improper English, I'm Greek. Thanks in advance!
