Adding live chat to your website
And now here comes the best bit - adding the live chat to your website.
When you log into your account, a window will appear containing the chat button script. In your website’s back-end, copy the script into the code. You can then check your website’s front end to ensure the chat button is visible to visitors.
There is also the option to add the script at a later time if you wish.
Create user profiles
Create your user profiles according to your needs. You can add details including name, phone number and whether the person should be made available or not.
Once your users have been added, you can configure user profiles to add them to various groups according to their roles and responsibilities. You can also enable SMTP settings to allow users to respond to messages directly from their email addresses.
Configure your settings
There are several options available to you to help you configure your settings to what you need. You can assign permissions, modules, alerts and different security settings that can be applied to different user groups.
You can also configure your availability settings to ensure your live chat is running at your desired times, and when there is someone who is available and online present. You can also configure your settings for what happens when there is nobody online, and activate a contact form feature for a callback or follow up when there is an available agent.
Using the dashboard
Using your new Click4Assistace dashboard is easy. The friendly interface makes it easy to access incoming chats, and monitor progress. It is also possible to set some predetermined replies that can be sent as needed to deal with common questions and queries.
Explore and learn more
With your main settings in place, you can then begin receiving chats. You’ll receive information about a user’s location, what device they’re using and their IP address, as well as the customer information gathered at the beginning of the chat. You can respond using your pre-determined answers, or by typing a reply into the chat box.
When the conversation has ended, you can ‘Close’ the chat, and categorise it to aid monitoring and reporting. You can then either choose to delete the chat, or store it to help with follow up queries from a returning customer.
Explore the other features of the dashboard to see how people are interacting with your site. You can see the pages a visitor is viewing in real-time, where the visitor is located and how long they’re spending on your page. You can also begin a proactive chat to offer assistance or to highlight a promotion to help you engage with the customer.
