How does a widget work?
The ChatApp Widget is a handy service that combines all communication methods in one element on your website. All your messengers will always be available to your customers.
You can add a widget in your Personal Account and customize it according to your needs:
- Specify links to the necessary messengers and add descriptions to them;
- Customize icons and their color;
- Select the location of the widget on the site.
After adding the widget to the site, you will be able to edit it in your Personal Account, and all information will be automatically updated on your site.
How to create a new widget?
1️⃣ Add a new widget
In your ChatApp Dashboard, select "Widgets" in the left side menu, and then click on the "+ Add" button in the upper right corner.

First select the future widget position on the site. There are 4 positions to choose from in different corners of the page. Consider where your widget will look most advantageous and noticeable to the user. Remember that the widget should always be at hand.
4️⃣ Add a new messenger to the widget
After choosing a position, you need to add messengers to the widget. Click on the (+) button in the field for adding a new messenger to open the editing window.
‼️Please note that the drop-down menu of the widget can contain no more than 8 icons of messengers.

Add a link to the chat for communication, and also specify the tooltip text. For example, “Write to us on Telegram” for communication via Telegram, etc.

After adding the messenger to the widget, check the links and tooltips, and then click on the "Save" button.
