enable a live chat widget for your events that allows your attendees to chat with you or your team during the event. The live chat widget is only available in the Lobby zone.
Tawk is a helpdesk application that enables agents to respond to incoming chat messages from any assigned properties. In Tawk terms, a property is a website (in this case, your Zuddl event website) where the tawk.to chat widget is added.
Enabling the Helpdesk
In Zuddl, we’ve named this feature as Helpdesk. To enable the Helpdesk for your event:
On the Zuddl dashboard, select your event from the event listing page.
On the event setup page, go to About Event > Advanced Details.
On the Helpdesk card, turn on the toggle. At this point, Zuddl automatically creates a tawk property for your event. Zuddl also sends email invites to all the team members added in Zuddl on your behalf, to access the tawk property.
If you already have a Tawk account, click the Go to Chat Dashboard button, which directly takes you to the tawk login page.
Alternatively, you can follow the instructions received via the email invite to log in or create an account.
Note: Click on the Get Helpdesk guide to reach this guide.
An attendee can find the helpdesk at the Lobby zone as shown below:
Creating a new Tawk Account
If you have not signed up with Tawk yet, follow the below instructions to create a Tawk account.
On the dashboard, go to Administration > User Management > Invite Member.
Under the Invite Member section, enter the email address of the recipient.
Select the role. You can either choose Admin or Agent.
Agent: An agent can be assigned one or more properties and respond to visitor queries over chat from those properties.
Admin: An admin can perform all actions an agent can, and in addition, admins can create new properties, invite members as agents (or admins) to properties, modify all settings, and perform a few other actions.
The team member receives an email invite to create a tawk.to account or log in to their existing account as shown below:
Note: If the team member already has a tawk.to account but associated with a different property, they can accept or reject the invitation from the notifications menu after logging into their dashboard.
Responding to visitors
Once the widget is installed, when a visitor sends a message via the chatbot, the admin/agent is notified of the incoming message by a ringtone.
You can choose to Join/Ignore,/Block the conversation. You can respond directly from the dashboard. To reply to the visitor’s messages, click on Join. The visitor gets replies from the admin/agent and continues with the conversation.
The agent and visitor views are shown side-by-side below:
