Desktop notifications when you’re offline
We know that there can be situations when you don’t have time to talk to every single one of your customers. Still, you don’t want to miss out on an interesting inquiry. That’s why now, you can get notifications to alert you of incoming messages even when your chat is offline! You can turn on these desktop notifications in your settings.

Google Analytics events fix
By connecting Smartsupp events with Google Analytics you can analyze conversations better and constantly move your business forward.
Recently, there was an issue with Google Analytics, when some events were duplicated and sent twice. Now the issue is fixed so the following section in the Help center is correct .
- Facebook Integration
Facebook Messenger integration
Do you have your own Facebook page? If yes, there’s no need to check new incoming messages on Facebook and Smartsupp separately anymore. Connect your Smartsupp account with Facebook Messenger and respond to every message comfortably from one platform.

Missed chat notifications & improved conversation categories
There are two new features in Smartsupp which you’ve been asking for. Both are connected to conversations.
If you miss a conversation, we will send you an e-mail notification about that. Cases, when the user opened a conversation and left the site without being unserved are considered missed.

You will see more conversation categories under the Opened tab. This will make your work smoother and your dashboard cleaner. Please, read our more detailed article in help.

New conversation icons
In the new version, you’ll see the source channel of every message. There are two new icons that will tell you. In the conversation list, you’ll immediately recognise the source of the last message in a conversation.
Red envelope icon indicates an email message. If you want to respond to this message and you have the user’s e-mail in Smartsupp database, you can choose to send a live chat reply (providing the user is still on your website) or an e-mail message.
Blue icon with Facebook Messenger logo indicates a message that was sent to you from Facebook. If you reply, the message will be sent back to Facebook (available only for Beta users).
With these icons, you will have a better overview and be able to decide which conversation has a higher priority. Our experience shows that people do not expect e-mails to be answered as quickly as live chat or Facebook messages.
Smartsupp release notes 10/20
We constantly improve Smartsupp using your feedback but, sometimes the change isn’t so obvious and you only find it after exploring the product yourself. We prepared an overview of all the new features, so that you do not have to play Indiana Jones finding them yourself :)

Use the Authorization form to reply even if the customer's left
In order to always be able to reply to a customer’s message, we recommend using the Authorization form in which the customers write their contact info before asking you a question. This will allow you to reply to any messages you have missed.
If you have not collected the contact information from the customer, it is not possible to reply and nothing can be entered in the text field of the message.
You can activate the form here.
