Widgets

Customize your users' interface.

This Product Highlight series provide a detailed exploration of the various features and functions of the Console, which serves as the interface to our Guest Communications Hub. Through a practical approach, we aim to demonstrate how effortless it is to enhance conversations with your guests by utilising our conversational artificial intelligence (AI). This article looks into how to make the most of customising and using the widgets.


What is the “Widgets” menu for?


The “Widgets” menu lets you add new widgets or customise existing ones. When the chatbot is set up, our Customer Success team configures the widget(s) according to the page on your website. However, you are free to create new widgets, each with its own features. For example, if your chatbot is linked to several properties, you can create and customise a separate widget for each property’s website.

What options are available in the “Widgets” menu?


By accessing the “Widget” menu, via the “</>” icon, you can choose the widget you want to customise. Once selected, you can modify it by accessing the following five tabs:

  • General
  • Languages
  • Customisation
  • Opening times
  • Script



Let’s take a closer look at what you can change in each of these tabs.


General

In this section, you can change the following elements:

  • Widget name: Not visible to users, it is for your internal reference.

  • Teams: The teams that will have access to the conversations generated by this widget.

  • Chatbot: The widget’s link with a specific chatbot, or the one to which it should belong.

  • Properties: The properties to be linked with this widget. Please note that the properties selected must be linked with the chatbot previously selected.
