Scheduling and mobile-friendly live chat inbox

A new scheduling feature allows you to apply one or more schedules to your engagements. This allows you to receive live chat requests only during working hours, for example.


Live Chat inbox is optimised for mobile - so you can view and respond to live chat requests and messages on the go, on your mobile device.


Log in persists for a day now - you won't need to log in again every time you return to the FAQ Bot portal.


And all live chat configuration options are now consolidated on a single screen.
