Direct chat link – now shorter and way more flexible!

Social Media are becoming more and more important in Customer Service. One of the reasons for that is the ability to send quick, short and straightforward messages via social channels. With that in mind, we have decided to make our Direct Chat Link shorter, so that you can blend it in with your Tweets or Facebook posts.

Direct Chat Link just got shorter!

From now on, when you see your customers in need, simply grab the shorter direct chat link and post it on your Twitter or Facebook. Simple “Have a problem? Let’s chat now! https://lc.chat/now/1520/ “ can work miracles!

Also, don’t forget to leave us feedback! Feel free to drop us an email anytime, at feedback@livechatinc.com.

Livechat: Zendesk integration tweak – now a bit faster and more convenient

Zendesk integration tweak – now a bit faster and more convenient

LiveChat is like wine – it only gets better with time. That’s thanks to our wise developers, who are constantly looking for ways to make LiveChat better for everyone. And this small (but mighty) update to our Zendesk integration does exactly that.

Updated Zendesk integration

Our previous Zendesk integration was a bit of a bother asking for credentials before letting you create a ticket. We took the pain and keystrokes out of the process. You can now authenticate your Zendesk account with a single click and go directly to the task. Ta-da!

We hope you’ll find the change helpful. As always, any comments or feedback are welcome.

Livechat: We’d love to know you better

We’d love to know you better

Have you seen our Customer Service Benchmark? If not, I think you should take a look. It’s a perfect source to see how you’re doing compared to others in your industry.

The Benchmark is there for a while, but it’s still not complete. Not without your company details…

With that said, we’ve created a quick form where all admins and the owner can complete the information about your company. It’s available right from the dashboard and you can update it as many times as you need.

Company details form

Please take a minute to tell us a bit about your business and how you’re using LiveChat and help us improve and personalize your experience with LiveChat.

We can’t wait to get to know you better.

Cheers!

Livechat: iOS app with 1Password integration
12 July 2016

iOS app with 1Password integration

The latest LiveChat iOS app is out on the App Store now. There’s more than just bug fixes and stability improvements to look forward to. Version 2.4.9 introduces the 1Password integration, which makes it way faster and easier to log into the app.

LiveChat for iOS 2.4.9

Also new in version 2.4.9 is the quick support button. In the past, if you wanted to chat with us from your mobile, you had to visit www.livechatinc.com. With the new update, the support button is right there at your fingertips in your profile section. Take a look:

Finally, we’ve squished a few bugs, like the one where you couldn’t see last items on the visitors’, chats’ and agents’ lists. Also, gone are the days when the app used to log in automatically with cached credentials. It was bad. We’re sorry it ever happened.

As always, we’re curious to know what you think. Let us know your thoughts at feedback@livechatinc.com or in the comments below.

Livechat: Are you a keyboard octopus?
4 July 2016

Are you a keyboard octopus?

Typing speed matters when supporting customers via chat. Just think of the time you could save if you improved your speed even by a few words per minute.

To help you out, we’ve created a fun Typing Speed Test.

typing_speed_test_updates

The test takes 60 seconds. It measures how many words per minute [WPM] you can write and how accurate you are in recreating the text.

Don’t worry if you don’t get the best score at first. Just as with any skill, mastery comes with practice. It won’t be overnight, but practicing each day will steadily transform you into a typing octopus. So, the next time you have a minute to spare, why not invest it in improving your productivity?

Protip: When you type, try not to look at the keyboard as every peek will distract your attention and eventually slow you down.
