Do you need your visitors to check a box before starting a chat? (this may be a requirement for GDPR, for example)? Then this is really easy to do using the Design Studio (you will need the Design studio enabled for this). These are the steps :
1- Under Settings, go to Design Studio, and edit the current theme (or clone).
2 – Under Pre-chat box or offline box (you may need to do it for both), click on fields on the right hand side. Under “add more fields”, click on the + next to Checkbox.
3- Add the text and the checkbox label. Make it required if you need to. An example of GDPR verbiage could be the following :
“I understand / acknowledge that the controller of my personal data is “NameOfYourCompany” with its registered office in “YourCompanyAddress”, and with customer service agents located in the USA and in Germany. I understand / acknowledge that my personal data shall be processed and transmitted in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).”
Then the checkbox label : I accept
4- This is what it will look like
5- Save, and apply the design if not done already. If this is required, and the pre-chat form is enabled, visitors won’t be able to start a chat unless they check the box.
On the HUB or chat portal, this is how you will see it :
