Datacenter Update

We’ll update our datacenter infrastructure on Saturday August the 25th. This means there’ll be a downtime from 16:00 - 20:00 UTC. If you’re still chatting around that time, please plan accordingly.

We recommend Operators to switch to Away status at least 10 minutes before to have enough time to complete any active chats without receiving new ones.

Just in! The Widget Router

Your support needs grow with the size of your website. People browsing your shop have different questions than those checking your documentation, international visitors prefer support in their own language, and you might want to use a different approach mode depending on whether your Webvisitors are using a desktop or a mobile browser.

Although we have thought of these situations before by giving you access to our Remote API, we wanted to make it even easier for you.

With our Widget Router you can handle different situations in a heartbeat. Whether you want to display a different Widget depending on your customers' location or just change the position of your chat button – the Widget Router is the right tool for you. Manage individual chat setups with only one click. Decide if you want to change your Widget's behaviour based on language, user agent, geolocation, device or URL match pattern.

The new Widget Router feature is available starting with the Business plan. Find more information here.

Upcoming System Maintenance

Hi there!

We’ll add some new features and improvements to our system on Friday the 10th of August. This means there’ll be a downtime from 9PM - 9:30PM CEST. If you’re still chatting around that time, please schedule in a coffee/watercooler break.

We recommend Operators to switch to Away status at least 10 minutes before to have enough time to complete any active chats without receiving new ones.

For questions, reach out via chat or at support@userlike.com

Liebe Userliker,

wir werden einige neue Features und Verbesserungen in unser System einbauen am Freitag, 10. August. Damit verbunden ist eine Ausfallzeit von 21.00 - 21.30 Uhr CEST. Wenn Sie zu dieser Zeit noch chatten, planen Sie bitte entsprechend eine Kaffepause ein.

Wir empfehlen allen Operatoren, sich mindestens 10 Minuten vorher auf den Away-Status umzustellen, so dass Sie genug Zeit haben, laufende Chats zu beenden, ohne neue zu bekommen.

Wenn Sie Fragen haben, schreiben Sie uns gerne im Chat oder an support@userlike.com

Umlauts and Accents for all. Plus Emojis!

We’ve heard from a lot of customers that they aren’t able to save their macros using their native language. That ends today with the introduction of our Dashboards European language update.

Now, if you’re using German umlauts, Spanish accents or Danish ø’s, we’ve got you covered!

For the emoji lovers of the world, we’ve now improved our chat transcripts to display emoticons as they would normally appear in a live chat. You can now literally see customer satisfaction when reviewing your chat sessions!

Learn your A-P-Is with our API Overview

If you work directly with APIs, you probably know what you want to accomplish. So we thought it would be nice to make it easier for you to get to the correct API based on your needs.

If you take a look out our new API Overview, you'll see a list of our available APIs, from which product they are available on, and a short description of what you can manage with each specific API.

We also break down what each API is capable of by categorizing them in different sections. You'll find which APIs are suitable for Event Notifications, Behavior Customization, or Chatbots and RequireJS.

Check out our new API Overview!

Topic Filtering for Add-ons and an Improved Audit Log

We've improved our Add-ons by adding Topic Filtering. Now you can decide to only create tickets for certain chat topics.

So now, if you want to follow-up on leads or technical questions only, you have the power to do just that. Head to any of your Add-ons and enable “Filter by topic” before choosing the chat topics you'd like to see automatically turned into tickets.

You can now also track the deletion of chat transcripts and offline messages in the audit log. This'll help you stay sane if you’re working in a large organization with dozens or even hundreds of colleagues; the more transparency, the better. If a message is deleted from your Dashboard, you can see exactly when it was deleted and by whom.

Chat Statistics for all!

We have some great news for all Userlike customers!

As a Userlike Customer on any one of our products you'll soon notice that your Dashboard now includes chat statistics. Starting next week, our system will collect some key chat data which will soon be presented at the top of your dashboard. You'll find a running total of your chats for the day, and a weekly summary of your chats over the last 7 days.

No action or setup is required on your part, simply wait for the data to appear in the next week or so and we will take care of the rest!

We hope you are as excited as we are about the improvements to your Userlike Dashboard!

API Improvement: Timezones

Great news for everyone using the Userlike API!

If you are offering support in several organizations or over several timezones, until now it hasn't always been very clear to see which timezone you're dealing with.

From now on, you can see a clear timestamp in UTC along with a clearly indicated timezone whenever you're receiving a list of operators, messages, checking your operators statuses, and more.

If you'd like to update yourself on the new timezones in our API, take a quick look at our API Tutorial.

Notification Options: Now for Facebook and Telegram Messenger!

Our Facebook and Telegram integrations give your customers more ways to reach out to you. We've now improved how you're notified for all incoming Facebook and Telegram messages.

Before, the messenger channel widgets didn't have any notification options, which meant that all of your Operators would receive notifications. Now you have the option to enable or disable the same notifications options as with your other widgets.

If you head into your Facebook or Telegram widget, you'll now see the Notifications tab. Once there, you can select if you want your entire team, or just the operator group, to receive notifications for chats or offline messages. You can also choose to disable browser notifications or the connection to your add-ons, should you not want these events to be sent.

If you're on our Corporate Product or higher and have interest in our Facebook and Telegram Messenger Channels, take a look and expand your chat support to your customers' favorite messaging apps!
