Reduce the number of support calls and improve customer satisfaction by taking advantage of the Narvar’s Zendesk Support Chat Widget on your customer’s tracking pages. By enabling the support chat widget, customers have the opportunity to chat with a live support agent for a faster, easier resolution to their questions and concerns, leading to an overall better experience for your customers.
Enabling Zendesk Classic Web Widget
When the Support Chat Widget is active, it takes the place of the existing Help Pill in the bottom right corner of the tracking experience.
To enable the support chat widget, log in to your Hub account, navigate to the experience that you want to add the chat widget to, and select Edit Content & Layout to edit the experience content and layout.
With the Experience Editor open, scroll down to the bottom of the experience and click Edit on the Help Pill to open the settings in the right-hand sidebar.
In the settings sidebar, open the Chat Type drop-down menu and select Zendesk Web Widget (Classic).
In the space provided below, input your Zendesk Chat Widget ID—this ID can be found in your Zendesk Admin settings.
- Log in to your Zendesk Admin account
- Click Channels in the left sidebar
- Select Channels - Web Widget
- Choose Setup from the options provided in the Web Widget settings
- Copy the Widget ID from the HTML code provided (underlined in red below)
- Paste the Widget ID into your Experience Editor
After updating the Widget ID, choose whether you want your Help Pill to include Display Text, an Icon, or both. The icon can be placed either before the text or after the text using the checkboxes below the icon toggle button.
Lastly, if you decide to include text with your chat widget, update the Display Text in the final settings box.
Once satisfied with your settings, select Save, and Preview your updated experience.
