Some users may want to hide the Chat Button initially, then reveal it after X seconds. Here is a little copy-and-paste Javascript snippet you can use to do this. This snippet utilizes the functions: SnapEngage.hideButton() and SnapEngage.showButton().


Basic Implementation

This is a simple, bare-bones approach to hiding and un-hiding the Chat Button.

This code is usable as-is, but you can change the duration of the wait-time by changing the amount for “secondsToWait.”

The code snippet:


Where to place the code

The default Code Snippet looks like this…

2015-01-29_1538

 

Your custom Javascript goes right here…

2015-01-29_1538

 


Example full code snippet

If this were the only modification you were using with your Code Snippet, your full SnapEngage code would look like this.

*Important: If you copy-and-paste this code, you must replace the WidgetID  placeholder (xxx-xxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx), with your own WidgetID.


Let us know if you have any problems with this code snippet.

Happy chatting.
