Introducing redesigned Reports and new features

We’re coming to an end of the redesign of our app. One of the last steps is the Reports section. Besides the new, cleaner look, we’ve added a few long-requested features.

Look for trends with period comparison

Compare present with past data to see if you are on top of your goals. Whether it’s increasing customer satisfaction or decreasing the number of tickets.

Compare time periods for LiveChat reports

Schedule shifts with ease

Heatmaps are very useful when planning shifts, as they show the busiest time of the day visually. The darker the color, the bigger the workload for your agents. Heatmaps are available for the total chats, queued customers, and new tickets reports.

With all the changes, we made sure that all existing features are still there, so you don’t need to worry that something you use every day is missing.

Improved chat widget is here

In the upcoming weeks, we want to introduce an exciting feature—chat history in the chat widget. Which means your customers will be able to view their previous chats when visiting your website again.

LiveChat chat history in the chat widget

To do that we had to make some improvements in the chat widget:

Pre- and post- chat survey answers displayed for the customers

Now your customers can see the info they provided both in the pre- and post-chat surveys.

Surveys in the LiveChat chat widget

The conversation is visible until the session is finished

Before, when the post-chat was on and the chat was closed, the customer couldn’t read the conversation anymore. And if they wanted to check something quickly, they had to start a new chat and ask for the information again. Now, when the chat is closed, the customer has access to what was written until they close the browser (or refresh the page).

Usability changes

We added a few interface changes to make things easier for your customers, like better readability in the Modern theme, or icons in the Smooth theme.

Please note that these changes are only available in the new chat widget. To switch to the new chat widget, go to Settings → Chat widget → Customization and click on Discover the new look. Confirm by hitting the Save button.

Test a new feature: Chat history

As mentioned before, we want to ship chat history in the chat widget soon. If you want to test this feature before we release it to all LiveChat customers – fill in this form. We’ll get in touch as soon as we’re able to launch it for you.

Tickets section got a new look

Another part of our app was redesigned. This time, we are happy to introduce the Tickets section with a fresh, new look.

Now, you can quickly manage your tickets thanks to clear layout, intuitive filters, and neatly organized details. We’ve also added an All tickets tab so you can find a ticket even if you don’t know its status.

Customize your Customer Details

From now on, you can decide what information (and in what order) is visible in Customer Details. All that, so you can have all the data about your customers close at hand.

What’s even better, you can add these apps: UPS Delivery Status and Hubspot as widgets in Customer Details. Which means no more switching between tabs and more time to provide excellent customer support.

Brand new Archives are here!

We’re constantly working on the Agent app so it has more powerful features but stays easy to use. Today, we shipped redesigned Archives.

Archives in LiveChat

What has changed?

  • The new design is easier to work with. Clear division between a list of archived chats, chat feed and details, makes you know what is what immediately.
  • You can see all chats with a particular customer with one click.
  • The old filters like Agents, Groups, Tags, Sales, etc. are still there. Now, you can set them to return results that meet one or more conditions. For example, all chats that were tagged with either Support or Sales tags.
  • Last but not least, it is possible to sort chats by date.

LiveChat Supports Rich Messages

I am very happy to announce that from now on, LiveChat supports rich messages. What does it mean exactly? That you can mix and match: text, images, and buttons to create personalized product cards and clickable menus. Send them right on chat to provide better support and boost sales.

LiveChat Rich Messages

We are only getting started, and for now, you can create rich messages through our integration with ChatBot. All messages sent by bots are displayed both in the chat widget and the Agent App.

Even easier chat window customization

About two months ago we shipped our new, robust chat widget configurator. But we’ve never stopped working on it. Today, I want to show you what has changed since the big premiere, and what new options are available.

What has changed

First, thanks to a collapsible menu, you can quickly find the setting you are looking for.

Tweak Your Chat with Our New Chat Widget Configurator!

Our new Chat Configurator is here, giving you the option to change the looks of your chat window and tweak its behaviour without using any additional CSS or JavaScript configuration.

New chat configurator is here!

How to enable the New Chat Configurator?

If you’re not yet using the new Chat Configurator, the process of turning it on is quite simple! Head over to the Customization section of your LiveChat settings and click on the Discover new look button.

New Chat Configurator: how to get the new configurator?

You should see a new Chat Widget Configurator, together with the preview of your brand new chat widget. To apply changes, click on the Save changes button.

New Look for your Chat: apply changes to your chat

And that’s it! Now you can start using your new Chat Widget Configurator to change the looks of your chat!

So, what options are there?

Pick your theme

Our new Chat Configurator gives you the option to pick a theme of your chat window. You can currently choose between Smooth and Modern, but don’t worry! There are more themes coming really soon.

New Chat Configurator: Pick a theme

In addition to changing the theme of your chat, you can also change the style of your minimized chat widget. Amaze your customers with a simple yet functional Bar or a modern and minimalistic Bubble!

New Chat Configurator: Pick a theme

Pick your color

With the Pick your color option, you can choose a color scheme similar to that of your company’s brand. Picking a carefully pre-selected set of colors will increase your visitors’ website immersion, providing a much greater browsing experience.

New Chat Configurator: Pick your ready color

We also realize that each website is different. That is why, in addition to the ready sets of colors, we’re giving you a feature called Custom Colors. A tool allowing you to adjust the color of your chat perfectly.

New Chat Configurator: Pick your custom color

From now on, you can change the color of your minimized and maximized widget elements, either by providing a hexadecimal representation of a color or by using our built-in color palette!

New Chat Configurator: Use a custom color palette

Widget position

With widget position, you can decide on which side of your website your customers should expect to interact with the chat window. Either on the left or, as set-up by default, on the right! And all of that without any additional CSS customization.

New Chat Configurator: Choose a position of the chat widget

Oh, and did we mentioned that it works great on mobile devices as well? But don’t take our words for it: try for yourself, with just a click of a button!

OK, but what about the widget’s behaviour?

With the new Chat Widget configurator, we want to bring you the possibility to change the behaviour of your chat window, without modifying LiveChat script added to the source code of your website.

New Chat Configurator: Additional tweaks

So, which behaviour can you modify exactly?

Show agent’s photo

Decide whether you’d like to display your agent’s photo during a chat and in the chat bubble, after your customer will minimize the chat window or receive a greeting.

Enable sound notifications for customers

By default, your customers will be notified about a new greeting and a new message received in a chat by a sound notification. This should get their attention whenever they, for example, minimized their browser while talking with your agents. However, if you’d like to disable those sound notifications, simply switch this option off.

Let customers rate agents

With this option, you can decide whether your customers can rate your agents during or after the chat.

Let customers get chat transcripts

Turn on this option to give your customers the possibility to request the transcript of their current chat. The chat transcript will be sent to their email.

Hide widget until it gets activated

If you’d like to keep your chat widget hidden until your customer will either: receive a greeting or interact with a custom start chat button added to your website (more on this subject here), this option is the way to go. Oh, and it’ll also work in case that you’d like to implement our open chat window API method, to build your custom mechanism responsible for opening a chat.

Display widget on mobile

Enabled by default, this option will make sure that your customer can chat with you when browsing through your store on their phones or tablets. If you wouldn’t like that however, simply switch this option off.

Tell me more!
