Working with Olark Chats

Once you complete an Olark chat with a website visitor, a new contact record is created in the CRM, and the entire Olark conversation is attached to it in the form of transcripts.

  • If the visitor’s record already exists in the CRM, then the Olark chat is directly attached to the record with date and time details.
  • If there are any case records related to the contact, the Olark transcript is attached to the case.
