One-on-One Chats, Unlimited Agents
You can engage into one-on-one chat sessions with your website visitors or customers. This provides you with a great direct way to communicate with potential customers or to provide support to new visitors and existing customers.
Customize Overall Settings
Modify your default welcome text, livechat administrator and online status. If you are offline a default email contact form is displayed, so your visitors can still contact you in a different manner.
Save Chat Sessions
So you can review them later and construct template messages out of them or use them as sticky board.
Customize Language Settings
All front end text is adjustable. You can have your own intro text and communicate to your visitors in your own language.
Quick Answer Templates
You can define any quickly answer templates for common questions that your customers may have.
With the sound notification, you and your customer support agents will be able to serve your customers in time. You will not loss your customers any more.
How Does it work?
The Live Chat Support extension provides a front end chat page for your customers. It is fully responsive. So your customers can chat with you on the phones, tablets, or computers.
The Live Chat Support for Joomla also provide a customer support agent page, which is fully responsive too. You and your customer support agents don't need to login your Joomla backend to serve your customers.
Whenever a visitor starts a chat on the front end on your website, you or your customer support agent will see a new chat appearing on the agent page. From within the livechat component you can communicate with the visitor on the frontend. You can also switch between chats or send quick answer template messages whenever you have a frequently asked question.
We also created several add-ons, so you don't always have to stay logged into the backend waiting for new chats. You can enable a sound to be played when a new chat is coming.
1. Upload Component
Login to your backend and install the component just like any other Joomla component.
2. Change Settings
A new menu item Live Chat has been added to your components menu. Go to it and adjust the setting for the first time. This also allows you to switch between online or offline mode. In offline mode, an email contact form is presented to the visitors; in online mode, a chat window is presented to your visitors.
3. Enable Frontend Chat Window
Next we need to publish a new menu item pointing towards the Live Chat component. This will allow our visitors to access the chat window.
4. Enable Frontend Agent Chat Window
The agent chat window is for you and your customer support agents. You and your agents will chat with your online customers in this window.
5. Start Chat
Whenever a visitor starts a chat on the frontend, you and your agents will see this new chat on the agent chat window. You need to frequently check for new chats inside your agent chat page. You can also enable a sound to be played whenever a new chat starts, so you don't need to stay logged in to your Joomla backend all the time.
