You can customize your chat widget in your Paldesk administration panel. Here you can modify your widget’s colors, name and login form, add triggers and edit other widget options. Make sure to customize your chat widget to reflect your brand.

Where can I customize my widget?

Step 1: Go to ‘Administration’ > ‘Embeddable elements’ > ‘Website Widget’.

Entering Website Widget under Administration

Please note the widget name will be visible to your visitors, so make sure it’s related to your business (e.g. Paldesk Support)

What can be customized?

Your widget administration gives you a number of customization options. You can edit color, position, icon shape or image, global message or icon text.

You can also edit your default client authentication type, add channels, triggers, enable agent avatars, chat transcripts, etc.

While you can add channels like chat, email or Facebook to your account in general (‘Administration’ > ‘Channels’), you can also link them to your chat widget. To add channel icons to your widget, proceed to the next step.

Step 2:  Open the ‘Channels’ tab in your website widget administration, add channels and save changes.

Next, you can set the default language, enable agent avatars, chat transcripts, links, remove Paldesk logo (if you’re on our Rising Star plan), and many other amazing options. To do that, move on to the next step.

Step 3: Set up additional options in the ‘Features’ tab:

Once you’ve set up your website widget, save changes and install it on your website according to the installation instructions in your ‘Installation‘ tab. The installed widget will reflect the configuration in your Paldesk admin panel. Here’s what the widget can look like:
