Dashboard improvements, faster chat widget, and auto-resolve conversations

All new and faster chat widget

We are rolling out visual changes in the chat widget to some of our customers. Check it out in your Kommunicate Dashboard and do contact us if you want to try out these changes now

Custom triggered messages from the bot

You can now send triggered messages based on certain events on your website. For example, you can trigger a message when somebody clicks on your buy button. Learn more about configuring custom trigger-based messages here.

Fallback/Mailbox email improvements

We have changed the aesthetics of fallback emails and emails sent from Mailbox. These email will now be rendered in plain text.

Setting to disable attachment option

You can now disable the attachment option from the chat-widget. Find out more here.

Disable/enable attachment based on bot response

You can disable or enable the attachment button based on the bot response. You can enable the button if your bot says ‘Please share the doc’ and disable it once the attachment is shared. See the documentation for it here.

Support for skipping welcome events

We have added support to skip welcome events from Dialogflow. This will be useful in the scenarios where you want a different message to be triggered in place of the welcome event depending upon certain situations. Head to the docs to learn more.

Auto-resolve conversations

You can auto-resolve the dormant conversation where the bot has solved the query or the user has not replied back. You can set up the time limit for the same. Note that, this is only available in the Enterprise Plan.

Localization of time stamp inside the chat widget

The ‘AM/PM’ stamps of the timestamps can be localized according to your language. Contact support to know more.

Weekly reports in your timezone

We will be sending the weekly reports based on your time zone. Previously, weekly reports were sent based on UTC.
