Version 7.9.0 – August 25th 2017

Version 7.6.0 – July 10th 2017
The chat can open directly in your website if you don’t want a new window to open for the chat session.
To enable the option just go in the Administration > Campaign and un-check the “Open chat in a new browser window” option for the desired campaign. After that, the chat button will appear in the bottom right corner of the screen. Clicking the button will display the chat in the page and not in a pop-up window.
You can test the new behavior directly in Administration in the Code builder section.
Operator console – Session management
From now on, an operator can use our console only from one place at a time.
If an agent logs in into the console from another device while using it on one device, she will be logged out from the first console.
Although moving from one device to another, the operator will keep the status of her calls intact so that she will be able to continue her chat without any impediments.
