Here are some commonly asked questions about using Gist Live Chat.
Can I turn live chat on or off when I want?
Absolutely! You can turn off chat when you don't intend to use it, or if you're on a hiatus. Go to the settings page, click on the 'Configure' tab, and turn off the 'Show Chat Messenger' button, and the chat messenger will stop showing on your website.
Note that this action disables the chat widget on all pages of your site. But you will still be able to use other tools - track customer properties, send emails, create custom segments, etc, while not being able to message your customers and visitors.
Can I change the chat icon on my website?
Yes, we have a few cool icon designs for you to pick and choose from. Note that you cannot add your own image or logo or design in place of the default icons that are available in the Messenger Configure settings page.
Gist will then send an invite link to the email address of your teammate, and they can sign up on Gist and start using it immediately
How can I get notified of new incoming messages?
Gist automatically sends browser push notifications to everyone on your team whenever a visitor starts a new conversation or replies to an existing conversation and no one on your team sees that message immediately.
If someone from your team is online and is viewing the message live, then no one else gets a browser push notification or email notification. This option is turned on by default and you can change it in your notification settings page.
Gist also sends email notifications when someone sends a message and no one on your team 'sees' that message within 2 minutes. If you or someone on your team clicks on the received message in the team inbox, and then types in a reply, then it is considered that the message has been read.
If you click on the message and read it but do not type in a reply, then it is regarded as 'not seen' by anyone, and as such everyone on your team would receive an email notification for that message(s).
You or your teammates can also choose to turn off email notifications sent by Gist. To do that, go to the settings page and click on ‘Email Notification’.
You can turn on the ‘Enable Chat Notification’ box if you would like to receive notifications whenever a new message is received.
This option is disabled by default, so you will not get notifications if you don’t want to.
