No more "empty" chats in the reports

Until today some of the website visitors clicked on the chat widget only to see how it works. With the pre-chat survey disabled, a chat with the curious visitor was started automatically and in such cases, visitors often did not enter any messages, because they didn't intend to start a chat at all.

Such "empty" chats led to major discrepancies in reports. In example, when LiveChat reported about 100 chats on a given day, some of these chats could have been empty and the actual number of chats would have been lower. Moreover, conversations without any messages took up agents' chat slots, so the agents couldn't handle additional chats even though the visitor did not participate in the conversation.

Empty chats issue is now solved

After today's update, with the pre-chat survey disabled, the chat is now started only after the visitor sends the first message. Automated greetings will work in the same way: the chat starts after visitor's first response.
