Chat widget settings
Find out more about how to personalize your chat.
Our widget weighs around 51kb - it's lighter than the old version (approx 200kb) and widget_without_chat (approx 100kb), making it one of the lightest on the market! :)

Let's go through each of the modules.
Here you can decide, for whom your chat should be accessible:
- Recognized Users - the module is visible only to recognized users, who are considered as contacts in the user.com app.
- Visitors - module visible only to anonymous users.
- Allow to start conversation - if it is switched on, a visitor can start conversation first and write a message on chat; if it is switched off, a visitor cannot start a conversation on chat and cannot write any message. Switching it off is usable when you are building automation where you send the first message based on the action performed by the user.
