Widgets in Vtiger enable you to customize the Live Chat widget that is installed on your website. You can configure the widget for:

  • online and offline welcome messages, 
  • feedback success and failure notifications, 
  • assigning agents, etc. 

By doing this, you can give a personal touch to the widget and make it look like your own. Customers will also relate to your company and feel welcomed to talk to your agents.

To understand this process in detail, have a look at the Web Chats article.
