The Regular, Team, Enterprise and Enterprise Plus plans get access to the following reports:

  • Last 7 days: A short summary of previous 7 days that informs you about the number of chats, queue, achieved goals and customer satisfaction levels.
  • Total chats: Data about the number of chats you receive and how many chats were missed when your LiveChat was offline.
  • Chat ratings: Customer satisfaction statistics based on the rates received by agents during chats.
  • Queued visitors: Information about the number of visitors that entered the queue and then proceed to chat or left the queue.
  • Queue waiting time: Data showing how long visitors needed to wait before entering chat from a queue.
  • Availability: The amount of time your LiveChat was online and available for clients.
  • Goals: Number of goals scored during chats.
  • Pre-chat survey: Data your customers enter into pre-chat surveys.
  • Post-chat survey: Data your customers enter into post-chat surveys.

Additionally, the Regular, Team, Enterprise and Enterprise Plus plans have access to these ticket-related reports:

  • First response time: The average amount of time it took for an agent to respond to a ticket.
  • Solved tickets: How many cases were solved during a given time frame.

In the Team, Enterprise and Enterprise Plus plans, each report can be filtered by a particular agent, group of agents or tag.

The Enterprise and Enterprise Plus plans include an engine for on-demand reports, which will prove to be invaluable for data-driven companies. These reports can either be scheduled or generated manually. Additionally, Enterprise and Enterprise Plus plan users can export report to a file and have access to the following reports:

  • Average chatting time: How long it takes to handle a chat on average.
  • Staffing prediction: How many agents you need to cover all of your chats.
  • First response time: The average amount of time it takes for your agents to respond to a new chat.
  • Average response time: The average amount of time it takes for your agents to respond to messages in general.

Can you invite visitors to chat?

Yes, you can use two types of greetings to engage visitors browsing your page:

  • Automated greeting – that triggers when certain conditions are met.
  • Manual greeting – which is sent when an agent manually invites a visitor to chat by selecting them on visitors list.

Is the chat window customizable?

The chat window is fully customizable. Possible modifications include:

  • changing the color scheme,
  • choosing a pre-made chat window skin,
  • uploading your own logo,
  • positioning the chat window,
  • changing the language of the chat window.

Furthermore, you can use CSS styles to customize it. Read more about chat window customization and CSS customization.

Can I change agent’s email address?

Unfortunately, agent’s email address cannot be changed. If an agent needs to change the login email, owner or administrator will need to add a new agent account in the Agents section. Then the account set up for the old email can be deleted.

If you are the owner and want to change your login email, first create a new agent with the new email and then pass the ownership to the new account before deleting the old one.

How does LiveChat work after hours?

When all your agents go offline, your LiveChat switches to offline mode. It means that your visitors can leave messages via ticket form and contact you even after your office hours. You can answer these messages in the Tickets section.

If you don’t want to use the ticket form, you can turn it off.

Where can I download LiveChat?

You can download LiveChat desktop apps from our Product page. We have apps available for Mac and Windows.

If you need an application for a mobile device, you can download them either from the App Store or Google play. We have apps for iPad, iPhone and Android.
