When there are no agents online in your account, the system switches your chat to the offline mode. By default the system displays the Offline Message window when the visitor clicks the chat button in the offline mode. The system also can:
•Redirect visitors to some webpage when they click the offline chat button
•Hide the chat button when the chat is offline
Customization of the offline chat behavior
The offline chat behavior can be changed in your account Control Panel, Account Settings / Offline Settings page.
Offline Settings page
1.This option is the default one. When a visitor clicks the offline chat button, the Offline window is displayed and the visitor is prompted to fill out some fields and send you an offline message. If there is no email address specified with this option on the Offline Settings page, the email from Account Profile page is used. The set of fields offered to the visitor is customizable.
2.This option is used to redirect visitors to some webpage when they click the offline chat button. It can be useful when you wish your visitors to fill out some questionnaire, more complicated than the Offline form. You can create a questionnaire page on your website and visitors will be redirected to it. Please provide the needed webpage URL for this option.
3.If you would like not to display the offline chat button to your visitors, you can use this option. The offline chat button will be hidden from the website.
Offline behavior doesn’t change
You changed the offline chat behavior to redirect visitors to some webpage or to hide the offline chat button but the system still opens the Offline form.
