How can I add my knowledge base to my chat widget?
Once you’ve created your knowledge base, set up categories and articles, you can send the public link to your customers. A faster way to your knowledge base is directly from your chat widget.
To add your knowledge base to your chat widget, follow these steps:
Step 1. Go to Administration > Embeddable elements > Website widget > Channels tab. If you have more than one widget, select a specific widget from the menu at the top of the screen.
Step 2. Scroll down to the Knowledge base link drop-down menu and select a knowledge base from the list (if you’ve created more than one).
Note: Please make sure your knowledge base, categories, and articles are public and enabled, otherwise they will not appear on the chat widget.

What does it look like on the customer’s end?
When customers click on your knowledge base icon, they will see different categories and articles in the chat window. The chat will expand and adjust to the length of the article they selected. They can switch between categories, articles, and languages, and swiftly move through your knowledge base until they find the information they’re looking for.
Here’s what this feature looks like from the customer’s perspective:
